WordSmith from Nantucket has created a magnificent video for Memorial Day over at Sparks from the Anvil.
One word of advice before you watch it: Grab a hanky. Maybe two.
Here are some excerpts from WordSmith's comments about the video. He is far more eloquent than I am.
Soldiers are heroes, plain and simple, answering a call that is greater than self.
It is the nobility of the American soldier who is the best ambassador to other nations; who exemplifies our values and traditions. It is the American soldier who represents the best and brightest our country has to offer.
Let us not forget their sacrifice.
