Remember veterans on their day

(Continued)

At a time when our country continues to suffer losses in Afghanistan and soldiers are returning forever changed, emotionally and physically, we cannot forget what veterans have given up for us and our country.

So if you don’t know any veterans, make it a point to meet some. Go to one of the many events today sponsored by veterans in our area. Or try writing a note of encouragement to a soldier, sailor or Marine. 

In McCrae’s words,

“Take up our quarrel with the foe:

To you from failing hands we throw

The torch; be yours to hold it high.

If ye break faith with us who die

We shall not sleep, though poppies grow

In Flanders fields.”
