I remember going to the National cemetery down the Cape with My Dad in the 70s the Friday before Memorial Day. We went there to visit a friend of My Dad that served with My Dad on D Day who had died in during the invasion. Being a I was kid amazed at all the flags everywhere no stone without one I asked My Dad did all these soldiers die in the war ? He said no they didn't but they all gave , He said right now you're surrounded by the best Damn Men and Women that ever walked the earth. Words I'll never forget.

He was killed on the 25 anniversary of D-Day.
 
I’ve been fortunate that we brought everyone back from both my deployments. I have, unfortunately, known some who didn’t make it.

As I reflect as I get older, I am always overcome with sadness for the kids who lost their parents and parents who lost their children. And as I now have a family of my own, I feel so much for those who lost that opportunity.
