Salutes from home and around the world for veterans

We are told, “Salute our military personnel!” Yet, after a war these men and women’s sacrifices are too often no longer saluted. That is until July 4th, Memorial Day, D-Day, Pearl Harbor Day, or Veteran’s Day comes around; then our warriors are brought back into our collective conscience.
