More details here, worth reading. Charles Kuralt did some good stuff: https://www.warriorforum.com/off-topic- ... otten.html
"A veteran is someone who wrote a blank check, payable to the United States of America for an amount up to and including his life. The currency of freedom is the blood, sweat and tears of a nation's people."
Gene Castagnetti | National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific director
Best wishes to all fellow veterans, past and future.
