Worthy of a memorial

Recently, I attended a Navy retirement ceremony for someone who had given 21 years of their life to the United States Navy.  He had accomplished a lot during that timespan for the Navy and himself, having spent most of that time involved in the Global War On Terror.  That person is my own son.

Over the years, I have witnesses the sacrifices that have been made by those serving our country.  The missed birthdays, special events, family events, Thanksgiving and Christmas seasons.  And of course, the ultimate sacrifice of one’s life on behalf of others.  I have stood in front of national memorials for those who have served in other wars and feel pleased that we have not forgotten them.   

You might ask, “why would you volunteer, support and endorse The Global War On Terror Memorial Foundation?” The answer is simple:  so the sacrifices of thousands will not go on forgotten.  Sacrifices are worthy of memorial.
