'Remember Me' a tribute to our veterans
The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review ^ | November 11, 2008 | Salena Zito

Time punishes war. The wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are no exception; as each moment passes, public resolve, politics and passion erode their mission.

Collectively, many Americans tend to remember the mistakes and politics that led us there, rather than the faces of the men and women who serve and defend us.

What a touching video and what a special young lady Lizzie Palmer is for reminding us of those brave heroes that put their lives on the line for us.

God bless Lizzie, our troops, veterans and families of those who serve. We are forever grateful. Thanks for sharing!

Salena, this is a hauntingly touching and appropriate tribute to today’s veterans and their families. Thanks for bringing it to us here.

Hey, MA, Canteen Ping? Most of us have seen this...it’s worth seeing again today.

Bless you, Salena.

I’m afraid this kind of honor and remembrance will be coming from the public and not from Washington institutions over the next few years.

This is, after all, a government of the people.

Aw, now, you’re gonna give me a complex, RockerMom!

Looking back, I guess it was significant. Shoot, me and a million other American servicemen helped win the Cold War, they tell me.

But at the time, it didn’t seem to be that big a deal. Amazing how the exuberance (and ignorance!) of youth colors your perception of things...

LOL Just giving credit where it is due! You and many veterans have fought hard to give us the freedom that we have. At the time, it might not have seemed that big a deal, but exuberance and ignorance of youth eventually turns into older and wiser! ;)
