Honor Them… So March Them

Over the centuries and across many cultures, civilians have given due honor to their returning warriors. It is fitting that America should also welcome home our servicemen and women who gave so much to preserve freedom. Since such respect has been reserved for winners, Americans have come to honor the outcome, largely overlooking great service and sacrifice. Thus, those who served our country have lost the affectionate honor, often given instead to those who have given far less – but in so doing, all Americans have lost far more. Our omission has condemned us all to a futile search for the true meaning of heroism. Therefore, Commanders, you are called upon to render one final service to your country. Gather your men and women, assemble them in parade array, and march them. March them down that avenue which is reserved for meting out the tribute due America’s heroes. See more
