What more can one say really? Their sacrifice can scarcely be comprehended...The ones that died and the ones that lived and were forced to integrate back into the world somehow.

One wonders how many veterans still suffer to this day.

Is this the Vietnam War Memorial?

My husband lost one of his dearest friends in Vietnam.

Of the many in my family who went to war (One recently returned from Iraq--his job was defusing and dismantling IED's), all came back. Two of my great-uncles were grievously injured and permanently disabled in World War I, but they came home. And they never complained. To the contrary, both felt honored to have supported "Uncle Sam."

Two of my cousins served at Normandy. Both came home, without a scratch. God's care!

Too often, we take those who serve for granted. We must not!

AOW,
I agree with you. My father fought in Germany during World War II and I think because he spared us the horror stories, we took what he had done for granted...and we shouldn't have.

My father served two tours of duty in Vietnam. He came back safe both times, but some of his buddies didn't. What hurt him the most was the reaction of the American people and the way vets were treated back then.

I am glad to see that those coming back from Iraq and Afghanistan are being treated with respect, honor, and thankfulness.

Great post esther.

Thanks for sharing your stories everybody. My Uncle Sam (i truly DO have one!) served in WWII and shared stories with me and my boyfriend the last time we saw him. Sadly he died a couple of years ago. But I so appreciate that he finally talked about that time with me.

We have to make sure the sacrifices of the heroes are not forgotten.

All we can say is Thank you, isn't it? Civilians will never understand what it's like to be a soldier, to go through a war. Soldiers deserve our utmost respect and awe.
