In Remembrance

Unwavering Valor

Whether at present or years long past, so many of us are families of veterans. Their commitment and service is a legacy to succeeding generations on true values in life… honoring our country and those who serve.  In a sacrifice repeated through time, families send sons and daughters to peacetime duty or periods of war and conflict.

The origination of our veterans stem from major waves of immigration in native lands around the world in seeking America.  They sought the colonial era of the 1600s, the early 19th century, and the 1880s to 1920 with the dream still in existence.  Many came seeking greater economic opportunity and religious freedom. Others sought solace from war, famine, and oppression.  Their profound memories of gratitude in a new land of freedom are still cherished and relevant so many generations later.  As those sons and daughters have fought and died when the need arose, they are owed eternal devotion for their defense and love of this country.

    A memorable post, Karen. If we fail to recall those that once served – then we don’t deserve the freedoms we enjoy today.

    All so true, GP. We can never fail to remember their service and sacrifice. So many astounding accounts to forever hold dear.
