Memorial Day; after the Remembrances

Today we celebrate the rich history of selfless service to the nation by all the men and women that have laid down their lives to ensure our freedoms.  That is a debt of gratitude we can never truly repay, but we owe no less to the families of those heroes and she roes that made all our todays and tomorrows possible.

We have a generation of young Veterans returning from combat in foreign lands on foreign battlefields.  Many, if not most have been scarred for life, either physically or psychologically.  Many are returning to broken, foreclosed homes and staggering unemployment.  They are returning to a public and to a country they have spent the better part of the last 10 years making safe from terrorism.

The world that on this day is so very thankful for their service, but can’t seem to understand the value or relevance of the skill sets developed during that service.  How on earth is that possible?  How is it that a 21 year old that lead a squad or platoon of men into COMBAT can’t lead a group of employees at your company?

Will we just fire up the grills, eat way too much, settle in to watch the basketball game tonight and forget about who and what made it possible for us to enjoy those pleasures?  Or, will we redouble our efforts to find a real and tangible way to show our immense gratitude and appreciation for those who serve.  Hire a Veteran; it’s your civic and patriotic duty.

 

 

See you on the high ground!
