  1. Wow, truly a great honor to march with such distinguished warriors! The names and deeds of these brave men will last always, but many are crossing over each day. If you know any veterans, thank them for their courage and sacrifice, welcome them back home, and spend time with them, if at all possible. They are a dying treasure for the People. Their experiences in war and peace can teach us valuable lessons and even advise us in our own life situations. They are our elders – gifts from the One Above – and we must seek their wisdom before it leaves with them. Thanks for a great article, short and powerful.
