“Veterans Day Commemoration at Dallas City Hall on 11 November 2004. The veteran pictured is Houston James, a survivor of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor in December 1941, and the Marine is Staff Sgt. Mark Graunke Jr., a member of an ordnance-disposal team who lost his left eye, his left hand, the thumb and index finger of his right hand, and his right leg as a result of injuries sustained while defusing a bomb in Iraq in July 2003.”.
At 2:00 minutes in this video a soldier dies, his hand slipping from the shaft of the flag he carries. Another hand grabs the flag before it can fall.
And so it is with the soldier. One gives all, another takes up the call – for freedom, for liberty.
THANK YOU VETERANS!.
