The last of the WWII vets stood to be honored at Monday's Memorial Day ceremony. And, I remembered the words "In gratitude to those who served."
We also spoke for a bit with a family whose brother had served in Vietnam and was one of those who made the ultimate sacrifice. They continue to honor his service. And I remembered the words "In sorrow for those who lost their lives."
"Today let us, as Americans, honor the American fighting man. For it is he — the soldier, the sailor, the Airman, the Marine — who has fought to preserve freedom. It is his valor that has given renewed hope to the free world that by working together in discipline and faith our ideals of freedom will always prevail."
~ Admiral Forrest P. Sherman
