Thank our military

This Memorial Day, as Americans we need to remember to thank those who we owe so greatly the freedoms we are able to enjoy. They have paid and pay a huge sacrifice for keeping our country safe.

We are working on a feature for the USS Lexington in Corpus Christi. It is a fascinating tour, with history of WWII on display, and also many aircraft.

Here is a poem I wrote a few weeks ago on our visit to the Pacific War Museum in Fredricksburg, TX., where I met two WWII veterans giving talks. It was written for them, but really applies to all our military.

Heroes among us.
Our greatest generation was all for one, and one for all.
Sacrifices were many. Many did not return.
All sacrificed, overseas, and at home for the one goal.
To win the war. There was no question.
Many went through hell, and gave the enemy hell.
They had a job to do to save the world from evil.
They are our best. Our WWII veterans. - CB
