Remembering Veterans

As cars approach the Portsmouth Memorial Park and the Memorial Bridge to cross the Piscataqua River going from New Hampshire to Maine, do they remember veterans?

I don’t know if the Park or the Bridge remind others, but I remember every day. My two uncles made the ultimate sacrifice in World War II because as we all know freedom is never free.

They may be gone but they will never be forgotten as long as we remember.

  1. In so many communities we have these memorials. Some we “whiz” right by as we commute, shop and go about our lives. Today gives us good reason to take some time, park, get out, and visit our local memorials and say thank you to those who paid the ultimate price for our freedom. We have several “on the circle” in Georgetown; great tributes to local men and women from WWII, Korea, Vietnam and now Iraq & Afghanistan. At the Veterans Cemeteries around the US, flags will be place on graves of service members. I always keep a few spare in my trunk for a stop to visit my first husband. I like to see that he has a new fresh flag.

    I am grateful for the attention and reverence we observe on this day. It seems like it has taken on a new significance recently, and it’s about time! Those who served should always know they will never be forgotten!

    My Dad and 2 of my uncles were fortunate enough to serve and make it home. They are gone now but I still remember what a wonderful thing they did. Grampy served during Vietnam but was fortunate enough to be stationed in Germany and to make it home safe, too. Amara and I took him to lunch yesterday! It is a very special day.
