Insurmountable Hope

It's official. My father has called to say Happy Veteran's Day. I now extend those same greeting to you. Here is a tribute to those who engaged the enemy in Europe during the Second World War.

This is incredible. It's hard to imagine the scope and desperation of that war until you actually see how it played out on a map. If Hitler had the patience to advance to the east in small stages, the Nazis would rule Europe today. However, he just had to take on Russia--which cost him the war.

Thanks Veterans! We owe you more than we will ever know.

We owe so much to our veterans for our freedoms past and present -- thank you.

Avily Jerome said...

Amen and amen!

Thank you, all who serve!

Travis, thank you. And thanks to the other brave men and women who gave, and give, so much for the good of all of us. God bless all our veterans.

Dave said...

Travis, thanks for your service too!

(The word verification right now is hot ho. Did you ask for that) :-)

Travis said...

Thanks all for your comments. They are appreciated.

I have no adequate response to your observations. I requested "Talley ho", but it was rejected. Also-thanks for you help in formatting that WWII map. I would have never gotten it posted without your assistance.

Yesterday in the senior adult choir practice, I had the veterans share about their service, and it was really neat. I learned more about the men who shared, even Allan who I've talked with about his service extensively. I wish we could have heard more from them, but the ladies wanted to sing (while the men wanted to swap war stories).
