THIS IS NOT A POLITICAL POST
I’m not telling you, which side of the aisle to stand or who to vote for. When I’ve got something to say, I’ll say it! No sooner; no later!
So, I recently saw the movie “Lone Survivor”. If you haven’t heard of it, you live under a rock and can read about it here:
Or you can read the book that it’s based on. Buy it here: http://www.amazon.com/Lone-Survivor-Eyewitness-Account-Operation/dp/0316044695
It’s an AMAZING movie to say the least. Short synopsis: It’s a war movie based on ACTUAL events. Great men lost their lives so other great men could keep theirs. The sad part is there are so many stories, like this one, that are not told and don’t need to be. There are men and women who risk their lives so you can enjoy your foamy Starbucks and Toyota Prius.
You know what these heroes ask for in return? NOTHING. Every single veteran’s hand that I have shaken said they were “just doing his duty” and “it was his pleasure”. Every single one was thankful for the appreciation. All deserve a hero’s welcome, even if it’s just a handshake and a “Thank You”.
All gave some, some gave all.
