Veterans Day - Remember the Heroes

Veterans day.jpg

This picture always takes my breath away.  From Wikipedia (link),

Joseph Ambrose, an 86-year-old World War I veteran, attends the dedication day parade for the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in 1982. He is holding the flag that covered the casket of his son, who was killed in the Korean War

This song fits my somber mood this Veterans Day:

Remember the Heroes by Sammy Hagar

Stranger in a foreign land
Fearful cries surround him
Returning home a wounded man
To find he's been forgotten, yeah

Courage is the badge he wears
Blinded by obsession
Wars are won by those who dare
The memory still haunts him

Remember the heroes
Who fight for the right to choose
Remember the heroes
We've all got a lot to lose

Remember the heroes
You know we all got alot to lose
Remember the heroes
Who's gonna fill their shoes?

  7. Thank you for this post. And for the life of me I don't understand why veterans don't get Veterans Day off instead of the banks etc.
