Generations of Valor - A Tribute to our Veterans

This photograph is one of my favorite pictures of our veterans. One is an old WWII veteran of Pearl Harbor; the other is a veteran of the Iraqi War. Generations of Valor.


Our WWII veterans, called the Greatest Generation, are dying at a rate of up to 2,000 per day. Our Korean War Vets and Vietnam War vets are now grey haired grandparents. Our Gulf War Vets are growing older and a new generation of Iraq War and Afghanistan War vets are swelling the ranks.

These are my favorite videos offering tribute to our veterans. I have purchased the DVDs but I may not download from the website. Click on the pictures or the link between them to start the videos. One is a tribute to WWII and Korean War vets; the other is for Vietnam vets. Both videos have the same lyrics but different slide photos. Each is titled "Before You Go". To access the entire webpage with links to other parts, click on to Dr. Sam and the Managed Care Band. The story of how these tributes came to be is interesting.

    I feel that the Veterans never receive the honor and respect they deserve. Hoping there will be people that can find it in their hearts to get a soldier's name & donate things to send over to the troops. Maybe we can show respect that way. I also think it would be nice to take greeting cards to the Veterans at our local V. A. Hospitals. Memorial Day, Independence Day, Veterans Day and Christmas would be a nice time to show them they are respected and appreciated. There is a statement that says "if you can read this, thank a teacher, if you can read it in English, thank a solider"!
