IT IS THE VETERAN !!!!!!
is the VETERAN, not the preacher,
is the VETERAN, not the reporter,
is the VETERAN, not the poet,
is the VETERAN, not the campus organizer,
is the VETERAN, not the lawyer,
is the VETERAN, not the politician,
On the ABC evening news, it was reported tonight that, because of the dangers from Hurricane Isabelle approaching Washington DC, the military members assigned the duty of guarding the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier were given permission to suspend the assignment.
They refused. "No way, Sir!"
Soaked to the skin, marching in the pelting rain of a tropical storm, they said that guarding the Tomb was not just an assignment, it was the highest honor that can be afforded to a serviceperson.
The tomb has been patrolled continuously, 24/7, since 1930.
I don't usually suggest that many emails be forwarded, but I'd be proud if this one reached as many as possible.
We can be very proud of our young men and women in the service no matter where they serve.
Bless them all.
