While all of our military veterans deserve our thanks and admiration, for many of the WWII vets, this will be their last Veterans Day. Some were at the Memorial in Washington, this video is very poignant, you might want a hankie. [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d7oBeQ4Y6xo&feature=player_embedded]YouTube - "Every day is a bonus": Veteran's Day November 2009 in DC.[/ame] Back in 2004, my brother and I took our father to DC to see the opening. We had a wonderful time, but when we got to the Memorial, my dad broke down crying, 'for all those who didn't come home.' In this video you hear that time and again. My dad 'earned' a purple heart on Omaha Beach around 7 am on D-Day. He was in the Big Red One. He never said 'earned', rather 'forced' as a better term, if he'd had a choice, he would have opted out. But he didn't, so he didn't.
