Generations of Valor

One of the most moving things I have received in a long time.

Each generation is blessed with real heroes. Here are two.

Veteran Embrace

Pearl Harbor survivor, Houston James of Dallas, embraced
Marine Staff Sgt. Mark Graunke Jr. during a Veteran's Day
commemoration in Dallas Nov. 11. Graunke lost a leg,
a hand, and an eye when he defused a bomb in Iraq last year.

This picture should have been all over the news but few, if any, have seen it.

We truly take a lot for granted. Forget the sports "heroes" and movie "stars". May all truly know the price of freedom.
