This year we are saying goodbye to more of the veterans of World War II. They are in their 90’s or approaching 90, and we lose more of them every day. The Korean War veterans are in their 70’s now, and the Viet Nam veterans are in their 60’s now. Our new generation of war veterans ranges in age from eighteen to fifty. We are grateful to all of you who are still with us, and we are grateful to all of your comrades who did not come home. Thank you to all those who made the ultimate sacrifice (and to their families) and to all those (and their families) who continue to sacrifice so that we can be safe and free at home. God bless you all.
