  1. How sweet! I didn’t realize the whole month was military appreciation month. I’m so glad they get a whole month. I think we should take better care of our veterans and military personnel–there should be no homeless vets or vets without good healthcare.

  2. As a daughter of an Indian Naval officer I can understand the pride you feel when you see your children march for their country. All over the world , we civilians owe a lot to those who defend our freedom.

  3. Hi Jackie – you’ve definitely found some amazing videos … and yes a military life is an honour to be a part of, and to know beloved veterans, new recruits and special people – some sadly lost to us – but who give us protection in that final salute to life … thank you – Hilary

    • I remember when my son joined. He has always been a bit of a loner–enjoying his own activities. His Sgt told him he would never be alone again–literally. They are always supposed to have their ‘battle buddy’ with them.

      • Hi Jacqui – I’m sure it’s done him the power of good being in the army … a good ‘crew’ to be with … with thoughts for them all – Hilary
