A time to honor those who serve our nation

Our tribute to those who served us and our country along with our gratitude for their sacrifice.

Over the years, I’ve been present not only for many celebrations to honor those who served but also to help document their efforts.

This video tribute was put together in 2012 and, we hope, helps honor the service of the men and women in uniform. Service to one’s country is something we must never forget and also something we must always honor.

It is sadly ironic that this year’s Memorial Day comes at a time when the actions of the Veterans’ Administration are under fire to failing to adequately serve those who served us. May that failure be corrected and never repeated.
