Re: Honoring All Who Have Served

Amen to that, god bless them all, especially the ones who never came back and the ones who have been wounded and deserve all of our support to help them cope with the wounds many of them received.

I've attached a couple of photos taken from the Federal cemetery at Fort Rosecrans in San Diego. They're of a head stone of a fallen soldier from the Korean conflict and every Memorial day and Veteran's day there's this beautiful wreath at the headstone, that's how we first noticed it.

I look at it and am struck at how, 64 years after this soldier's death he's still mourned and honored and also am always struck by thinking how his parents must have thought they were so lucky that he was too young to serve in WWII, only to have been caught up in the onslaught that occurred with the north Koreans, with the backing of the Soviet Union and China, swept down the Korean Peninsula. Hi name was Dale Stephens and he was 19 years old when he died.

Re: Honoring All Who Have Served

Words cannot begin to express the gratitude that I have for all the veterans, active military personnel, there family's and for the men and women who never returned home. It’s the heroism and dedication of each individual member of our armed forces that our freedom can be persevered. From the bottom of my heart I want to say thank you for your service and sacrifices you have made!!!!

I salute you MSgt Belfield.

Belfield, originally from Utica, spent 16 years in the Army, including a stint in Europe where he fought in the Battle of the Bulge. He also served during the Korean War when he worked as a recruiter in Syracuse. Belfield told the newspaper last year that he never regretted serving in the military.
