Memorial Day: A Solemn Salute to Those Who Sacrificed for Our Freedom

  1. Memorial Day: A Solemn Salute to Those Who Sacrificed for Our Freedom Crow's Feet 18:52

Memorial Day is a solemn day of remembrance dedicated to honoring and mourning the military personnel who have died in the service of our country. It is a time for all of us to reflect on the sacrifices made by these brave individuals and to show gratitude for their unwavering commitment to protecting our freedoms.

Join Lee Bentch as he speaks with Barabara Kautz, a Vietnam War veteran who served with the 24th Evacuation Hospital at the Long Binh Army Post in 1969. Barabara’s thoughts, concerns, and the impact ongoing death had on her are very poignant and touching.

Memorial Day has become overshadowed by Memorial Day weekend, the unofficial beginning of summer vacation. Lee points out that there is nothing wrong with going to the beach, starting a vacation, or spending time at a picnic or amusement park, as long as Monday, May 27, is reserved for a few minutes of silence, tears, and thoughts for the 700,000 men and women who fought in the many wars that shaped our country and died doing so.

 These are men and women who will Always be Remembered and Never Forgotten.
