I know that economic times are extremely difficult right now, however, I thought I would post some links to hopefully remind you that no matter how bad things may seem, many men (I am sure there will be some women for this in the future) have sacrificed much, or all, so that we can enjoy the abundance that most of us still enjoy. Some of these citations are from yesterday, today or the days following Thanksgiving this year, many of them are from the Battle of Chosin Reservoir, during which over the Thanksgiving time period 58 years ago thousands of Marines and Soldier fought desperately against an overwhelming enemy force, in temperatures below freezing, in uniforms meant for tropic temperatures... Hope this is not too P&R:
My grandfather was one of those soldiers (or Marine I should say, he'd smack me upside the head for calling a Marine a soldier...) in Korea and every year we get to hear stories of how bad it was back during his service days. And you know what? Every year I sit there and listen with respect and awe because I will never experience something like that. He's immensely proud of what he has done and he has a right to be.
Thanks to all the soldiers out there and to everyone else who works to keep us safe! God bless!
