The title of this post was something said... ...at last year's Memorial Day parade by a retired Major. He addressed the group of veterans gathered to march in the Memorial Day and reminded them that if they were here today, it was not about them. It was about those that can no longer march in parades; those who will never again taste the freedom they fought so valiantly to preserve.I try to remind everybody who offers me, as a veteran, thanks today. Today isn't about me, or the other veterans around. We've got a day in November all to ourselves. Today is about the veterans you can't thank, those that are long gone, but not forgotten.
