Reflecting on those we remember on Memorial Day

Vets_tombofunknown_3199A few years ago I was a volunteer taking a group of “surviving” veterans on an Honor trip to Washington DC. It was indeed a privilege to be in their company.


One thing that was noticed by those of us who were there to serve as volunteers for these WWII and Korean War veterans was that, to the man, they were humbled when remembering those that didn’t return. This was particularly noticed when we were at Arlington National Cemetery realizing just how many brave Americans gave the ultimate sacrifice for our country.


On this day, Memorial Day 2014, take a moment to remember those who fought and died for this nation … may they never be forgotten.
