A good friend, and fellow Navy Veteran, posted this earlier today. I don’t know if they’re his words or someone else’s, but the message hits home. But for the grace of God, someone could be reading my name on a wall today.
“Every tombstone, every name on a wall or monument represents a once living young man or woman who was someone’s son or daughter. They may have been someone’s husband or wife or sweetheart. They may also have been someone’s father or mother. One thing that they all have in common is that they were young men and women who never got the chance to become old men and women. We need to do more to honor their memory.”
Take a moment today to remember those who gave all for our Country. And also say a “thank you” to those still doing their part to protect our freedom…..jc
