In the midst of trying to write something about our veteran Villagers and Tauntonians, and indeed all our American warriors who gave the supreme sacrifice that we may be free,
a friend sent this video to us.
I decided that it will simply be my tribute on
this 2014 Memorial Weekend.
Those, too, who have fallen and live with their sacrifice and pain each day
are not forgotten either. A few years ago we were at the National Cemetery in Arlington, VA.
As I watched our elder veterans walk slowly by, or in their wheelchairs, my
gratitude was overwhelming.
This nation can never take these men and women for granted.
I urge you, too, to watch for Charles Crowley's histories of our Taunton warriors
on I'm From Taunton Facebook. He honors them in a beautiful way by sharing their inspirational stories with all of us.
God bless America.
