Show a WWII Veteran You Care.

From Henry V – William Shakespeare

He that shall live this day, and see old age, will … strip his sleeve and show his scars, and say ‘These wounds I had on Crispian’s day.’  … we in it shall be remembered- We few, we happy few, we band of brothers; For he to-day that sheds his blood with me Shall be my brother.

These words echoing from the 16th century proclaim a fundamental truth that how we honor and care for our veterans, says a lot about our character as a nation.  Any man or woman who served, fought and risked everything for us should NEVER be forgotten.  They should never be made to feel unwanted, unneeded, and living without purpose.

They are our sisters and our brothers and WE ARE THEIR KEEPERS!

I’ve told you all this because today I learned about a 90 year old WWII veteran who now finds himself all alone in the world and in his mind without any reason to go on.

This individual would very much like to receive letters and cards.  If you would like to correspond with him write a comment to this post saying so and I’ll get in touch with you.
