Veterans Day

Please take “A Pittance of Time” to remember the sacrifices of those who have sacrificed so much for their Country.

I’ve tried for the last five hours to put into words what it means to a Veteran when other Americans show their support, but I couldn’t give the topic justice. While Veterans might say it was their privilege to serve their Country, and no thanks is necessary, it is still appreciated.

I can’t tell you how much it meant to me when normal everyday Americans stood up and clapped for our plane full of Soldiers going back over to the Middle East (It is just like the commercial). I can’t tell you how moved I am every time I hear a young child recite the Pledge of Allegiance. I can’t tell you the how much I respect the Scouts who volunteers to play Taps at the burial of a Veteran. I can’t tell you how moved I am by seeing Scouts place flags at headstones. I can’t tell you how much your support means to me, a simple Soldier, just doing his job.

Please keep supporting our Nation’s Veterans, it does make a difference.

While he was not a Scout, he was a member of my Unit in Afghanistan, Cpl. Bernard Corpuz, you will not be forgotten.
