Thoughts by Patrick Donovan, US Navy Disabled Veteran
Today is our solemn day of remembrance for our fallen heroes who gave the ultimate sacrifice in the defense of our great experiment called the United States of America. The men and women buried in Arlington National Cemetery and all the men and women buried in the ground across this great nation deserve our gratitude and thanks for giving their lives in the defense of our freedom. Today, men and women across the planet are on a vigilant watch to keep our freedom and to ensure that we, as a nation, One Nation UNDER GOD, thrives and survives another day.
At 1330 today at Forest Glen Cemetery in Concrete, WA, I will perform the most important 60-second piece of music ever created: TAPS.
God bless America and God bless our troops
