Yes, yes and yes...let us never forget. We will never be able to understand what they went through..we will know that it was true hell...let us never forget the sacrifices and the pain.
Let us always honor each and every one as best we can.

We can never thank them enough. Somehow I think they can hear us. Nice post, Yo.

It was a profound sacrifice those men & women made. I'm not sure I would be up to the task.

Yes, let us not forget! My father, 3 uncles, numerous cousins, father in law, husband, son, and son in law have all served or are serving now. And the spouses, parents and children serve too by sending them.
