Honoring Those Who Serve

 “Today, on the 11th hour, of the 11th day, of the 11th month, please take a moment on this 91st Veterans Day to remember 26 million living Veterans who honorably served our Republic at home and on foreign fields of combat, and sought no special recognition following their dedicated service.  We also reflect upon a new generation of patriotic military personnel who wrote a blank check made payable to “The United States of America” for an amount “up to and including their lives” and “Go in Harms Way” daily, Combat Warriors who gave the full measure of devotion to their country (the real heroes), and those heroic Combat Veterans who were permanently disabled.  

A tribute from the Combat Veterans for Congress. Click here to see a video tribute they’ve put together.

It is the Soldier
It is the Soldier, not the reporter
Who has given us freedom of the press.
It is the Soldier, not the poet,
Who has given us freedom of speech.

It is the Soldier, not the campus organizer,
Who has given us the freedom to demonstrate.

It is the Soldier, not the lawyer,
Who has given us the right to a fair trial.
It is the Soldier, who salutes the flag,
Who serves beneath the flag,
And whose coffin is draped by the flag,
Who allows the protestor to burn the flag. 

Father Dennis Edward O’Brien
Lew was asked to speak at an assembly at a local school in observance of Veteran’s Day. It looks like the kids were asked to dress up in red, white and blue. And they sang to the Veterans. Very sweet.

 QMadp of Iraq War Heroes took this video of an Oregon City Veteran’s observance.

And H/T to Facebook Friends who posted the commercial about our troops (see below) but while looking at it I saw REAL videos of the same kind of thing.
