Today we remember those rough men.
We Americans can be a peculiar lot, proud, arrogant, boastful, take your pick, but it’s hereditary. Benjamin Franklin, while attending the Second Continental Congress, felt that America, more violent and more enterprising, deserved to be a new nation, separate from it’s mother country.
The American soldier typifies the American dream, that freedom is not free, and today we honor our war dead.
I had a difficult time deciding what video to post, I almost went with this (talk about getting all weepy) but this honor’s more our current military, not those that died in the line of duty.
Today we offer a salute, a prayer of thanks, give a proper respect to those in our military. We don’t hash the reasons for going to war, the utter waste of good men , the heartache of a broken family, or why they are fighting thousands of miles away, that we reserve for the other 364 days.
We remember, God bless our troops.
