The title of this post was something said to him at last year's Memorial Day parade by a retired Major. He addressed the group of veterans gathered to march in the Memorial Day and reminded them that if they were here today, it was not about them. It was about those that can no longer march in parades; those who will never again taste the freedom they fought so valiantly to preserve.
Freedom is not free. It has cost many everything they have.
Requiescat in pace
For those that never came back, as least not vertically, please remember.
That is all.
