TWO EMAILS

Henri-Chapelle, Belgium. A total of 7992 of our military dead.

“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.”

— Ronald Reagan

Two emails arrived in my box yesterday.  They included a video and images.  They are about the same subject – the cost of freedom.  They are reminders.

About the pics:

They were loved by many.  They were from the farms and the small towns.  They were from the big cities.  Many didn’t wait to be drafted.  They left empty beds in every state.

There was a sad look from Mom each day.  Dads could only tear.

I will never forget.

About the video:

We must all be teachers.

Thanks Madge (pics) and Bill (video).
