Memorial Day Respects

As a young soldier being sent from Germany to Verdun France as a unit representative, I had never before felt such a humbling experience as when paying respect in a military cemetery that seemed to go on for ever.

Memorial Day is about our respect and veneration of those who gave all, paying that penultimate price, so that we might have the world we have.

My heartfelt thanks to those who perished in service, and may I somehow measure up to the vision of the legacy they earned for us.
