True Meaning....

Last Update: May 26, 2014

Let's take a moment to reflect on the true meaning of the day: to honor the servicemen and women who lost their lives while serving our country-- for those they left behind and sacrificed and endured sorrow to make our own lives better and our country an even a greater place to live.

In honor of "Billy Goat" a World War II veteran of the 88th Infantry Blue Devils, born January11, 1925 whom I came to know while volunteering at a Veterans Home.. I AM so fortunate to have met you and hear your war stories...you'll always be remembered.

I can understand that I work for two charities one is called SSAFA and I am a case worker, so I go and see what help and support is needed and sort that out, also send out care packages to our deployed armed forces and then I have my two adopted US soldiers, the smallest of things can mean the biggest to them and as a mother I would like to think someone would show my son compassion and support

There are many veterans who have gone through so much and still do and the ones who pay the ultimate price, they deserve our support, & respect

Thank ypu KathieMac. I volunteer at Veterans Home as a way to give back to the men and women who were mostly injured and incapacitated while serving their country. I've met so many unrecognized heroes and all they need is someone or somebody to talk and spend time with to tell their stories. Some were simply happy with me just being there to play scrabble or push their wheelchair to the dining hall or out in the garden. I've shared joy and tears with them and it makes me sad that others felt that they've been forgotten. I haven't been so actively volunteer my time since my son was deployed to Afghanistan but my heart will always be there for them.
