This past Monday I had the honor to attend Memorial Day services in honor of our fallen heroes. Being a veteran myself, this is time for me to remember not only my time in service of my country but those who have served in years past. It was truly a solemn moment.
This year the service occurred during a fairly heavy rain and unfortunately less attended than in years past. During the service, I could not help but notice that of those in attendance were mostly veterans of past wars. I noticed gentlemen from World War II, the Korean War, Vietnam vets and Iraq. I noticed most proudly wore the medals than earned. I cannot understand why more folks could not take a hour or so out of their year to learn about some of these truly amazing people.
The service was very touching. I was glad it was raining…it easily hid the tears on my cheeks.
Hopefully next year I will see more folks…but I doubt it.
