November Gratitude–For the Sacrifice of a Few For Freedom for Many


Field of Stars at the WWII Memorial in Washington D.C.

My father was one of the lucky ones who came home after three years serving in the Marines Corp from 1942 to 1945 on Tarawa, Saipan and Tinian.  Hundreds of thousands of his colleagues didn’t come home, dying on beaches and battlefields.  Thousands more came home forever marked, through physical or psychological injury, by the experience of war.

No matter how one views WWII, or the subsequent wars that our nation has fought and currently is fighting, we must support and care for the men and women who have made the commitment to be on the front line for freedom’s sake and for our sake.

To our U.S. veterans–with deep appreciation and gratitude–for the freedoms you have defended on behalf of us all.
