The VeteranPosted Thursday, May 14, 2009, at 6:16 AM
He was limping slightly, had a cane and a intense look of concentration on his face.
The thing I noticed most about the man was the fact he had a hat on that read, "veteran of WWII."
I wanted to stop him and ask his story, what company was he with, what branch of service, and others.
Because of his concentration, I did not do so, but I regret not telling him, "thank you," for everything you did to keep this country safe in that hard time of war.
I think the younger people take for granted the freedoms we have so readily.
I am a child of the '60's Veitnam era. I remember the protests, the wristbands of POW's and missing in action.
My father did two tours of Veitnam, and he would never talk of the war.
I saw all nationalities of people walking around Wal-mart and thought that we have the actions of these brave soldiers, men and women who have put their lives on the line for our freedoms.
I want to say "thank you" to all the service people.
Whatever war, whatever branch of service that you served in.
I really appreciate my freedom in this country.
Thank you unknown veteran.
