“It is only those who have neither fired a shot nor heard the shrieks and groans of the wounded who cry aloud for blood, more vengeance, more desolation. War is hell.”
– William Tecumseh Sherman, General, US Army
My deepest thanks to the men women who’ve given their “last full measure of devotion” and to the families who “laid so costly a sacrifice upon the altar of Freedom.” Good Memorial Day to all
I’m humbled whenever one of my fellow citizens comes up to me and thanks me for my service. Having served alongside some of the finest men and women I’ll ever meet, I can only accept those kind “thank yous” on their behalf.
It’s an honor to serve, and I have the great privilege to serve in the company of heroes. The video below is a touching reminder of that bond we share as warriors, even across generations. You can feel it when veterans meet, and see it in their eyes.
So to all my fellow veterans, thank you for your service.
Thank You For Your Service (A Moment of Truth):
