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.
thanks, I think this is a must watch every week! never forget
Thank you for your service to our country, HiJinx. It is greatly appreciated!
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.

Beautiful....says it all!
Thanks for the ping, Kathy!
Thanks for the Zing!!!

Would you please put me on your Pingy Thingys?
LOL! Thanks Kathy...
