Today is Monday, May 26, 2014, Memorial Day.
The United States of America today pays tribute to the men and women who had not only have given their lives today in heroic service to the nation, and by addition, their very dear families as well. Not only those military men and women who died in service, but also those who have come home to deal with the injuries of war in both body and mind.
Though their day is in November, today at the yearly Memorial Day Parade in East Hartford, Connecticut, USA, today while recording a video of the parade on my cell phone, I was using very often two simple words which can be the theme for today: THANK-YOU. Using those two words to both the veterans who have served and to a large group of army national guards who also marched and are at the present time serving. The words thank-you never wears out and is the very best words Americans can offer on this day.
Offer these two words not just to the families of those who gave their all, the war injured, and the veterans, but also to all our first responders, police, fire fighters, and emt’s as well for they both serve and protect their communities 24/7.
Now more than ever, with the recent disgraceful VA medical scandal, it is much more important than ever before that we must say “thank-you” to those who have served our country.
With MANY THANKS To Both Lee Greenwood And YouTube, “God Bless The USA”. Watch The Video Here:
