Veterans Day 2014

Veterans Day 2014

 

This day- and indeed, every day, I pause to remember my fellow veterans.

 

I remember those who have gone before me- ones who defeated Marxism, Communism and Fascism.  I remember those buried under Arlington's white headstones- most identified, some not.

 

I remember those who served in Korea and Viet Nam- both the ones who returned home to nothing resembling a heroes' welcome, and those who have never returned at all.  We remain vigilant and anticipate their return.

 

I remember a great number of friends I had the honor of serving alongside within the Naval Security Group Activity and the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command.  The current administration's view notwithstanding, our military's intelligence personnel were, are and will forever remain some of the brightest and hard-working patriots one may ever find.  We must never mistake their silence for weakness.

 

And lastly, I remember those currently serving to protect us and keep us free.  Whether serving stateside or aboard ships that comprise the greatest naval force our planet's ever seen, I thank them.

 

Whether flying high above in the best aircraft anyone could have or fighting on the ground to ensure some rag-tag band of maggots seeking to kill me for practicing my religion in the name of theirs doesn't make it to America's shores, I thank them.

 

Today and every day, I remember....

Hi Dennis , This was an excellent post.Just the other day I went looking for the men I served with in the US Navy,it seemed like yesterday,but it was 47 years ago during the Viet Nam conflict.

                     The veterans of today and other years need to be thanked every time you see them on the street or in an airport in uniform. A like kindness goes a long way.
