A Thank You To Our Veterans

6 03 2012

I recently rewatched the HBO miniseries Band of Brothers, watched the related video “We Stand Alone Together” and read “Beyond Band of Brothers” by Major Dick Winters.  The whole time all I could think was how grateful I am.  These sources offer some insight into what the military man goes through to protect the freedom and lifestyle enjoyed in this country.  It’s one thing to be told that these men fight and die for us, but to see it so vividly portrayed and told from the first person has a much deeper impact.

The story of Bastogne was particularly eye opening.   I cannot imagine being surrounded by an enemy adamant on killing me, freezing in a foxhole with inadequate food, clothing, and ammunition, and watching my friends get killed or maimed by a constant barrage of artillery fire.  For two weeks.

I just wanted to write this post to say, thank you.
