Wonderful Collection of touching pictures
What determines if their sacrifice was justified or in vain?
I take it you don't understand?
Some will *never* understand.
Doc, I served in Kandahar, a lot of my friends served either with me or in Iraq. I never question the value of standing with and honoring my brothers. I question whether the presidents and congresses sending us to war have spent our blood wisely. What did my friends die for? What did we accomplish? Is Iraq any better off today, with Daesh and other islamic groups fighting for control? Are we any better off here at home with refugees and migrants? Are our historical allies better off? What was the return for our blood and treasure? By what metric do we determine success or failure?
Seriously Sir, You may never know the good that you have accomplished. But those who were on the receiving end of all your sacrifices will never forget. Ours is not to question why. OURS IS TO DO OR DIE. YOU SIR, Have DONE so MUCH! Stand Tall, and count your BLESSINGS. You have sacrificed part of your life for others. There can be no greater accomplishment in life without dying for your fellow man. Welcome to the rest of your life Soldier. THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE, from one Vet to another. STAND TALL SIR!
Stand Tall One and ALL! You may Never know who, what, when, how, nor why. Not on this earth at least. But someone, somewhere will care for what you achieved, for what you have done for them or theirs. To all Veterans, You have served the GREATEST NATION on Earth. GOD HIMSELF SMILES DOWN UPON YOU EVERY DAY. HE KNOWS THAT WHICH YOU DO NOT. HE GUIDED OUR ACTIONS, and OUR ACCOMPLISHMENTS. STAND TALL ONE AND ALL. YOU ARE, AND ALWAYS WILL BE, SOMEONES HERO! Thank you for your service.
