Tony Wright: How have our veterans been treated?

One day a year we set aside a special day, Memorial Day to celebrate our men and women who have who have lay aside their own lives to protect ours.  Of the hundreds of thousands of those who have taken up arms, many have paid the ultimate sacrifice, laying down their lives!

These are not talking about statistics, but we’re talking about mothers, fathers, children, uncles and aunts, cousins and real flesh & blood family members who have died that we might live free.

A lot of times we take these holidays, enjoy a few hours’ shows on TV, maybe go to a parade, or even visit the Arlington Cemetery. But to seldom we thing about those suffering in different ways psychologically, physically and many other ways they hurt but no one helps!

I just close thanking all those throughout the years who have “fought to keep men free.”
