What a great tribute! Thanks for posting it, and thank you for your service NKP_Vet. I want to cry as well when I think of what the traitor in the White House is doing to our military!
I’m proud to say that my dad was in the Army, uncle was in the Navy and my son is a Navy veteran. A second cousin died in Okinawa and a great uncle was MIA in WWI in Belgium. My grandad - an immigrant from Poland, joined the army. I am proud of them and all who serve. We owe you and all who served a debt of gratitude.
My kids’s HS band every year has a concert where they do the anthems and ask the vets in the audience to stand when their anthem is played. Big applause.

Bring back the golden eagle and the old flag of the US Army..
Bookmarked for lurkers, and for me when I need to focus on values that matter. Served in US Army, Corps of Engineers.
In all history there were only two people willing to lay down their lives for freedom, Jesus Christ and the American soldier.

Through my genealogy research I have found documentation showing that a member of my family has served in every American war from the Revolution, to Afghanistan and Iraq. The only wars I cannot find a record for are the Indian Wars. My Civil War ancestors fought for the South.
