A member of my own family was there that day. He survived, but he never talked about his experiences there. Another one of my family members served in Europe and died in service to our country.
Yesterday, astronaut, senator and decorated WWII fighter pilot John Glenn passed away. He was 95. He fought for our freedoms and pursued new heights.
In this holiday season remember those who have gone before, thank those who have served our country and protected our freedoms. Our veterans, our elders have wisdom and life experience that many of us can learn from. Ask a Veteran about their experiences. Learn from our elders who have seen much more than we. Wish them all a happy, safe holiday.
