    Hey, just linked back to you in our last post. I enlarged the photo just to see the details. You have to check out the stars on the flags flying in the picture–they are not stars at all, they are little circles!

    Veteran’s day

    For many Americans, Veteran’s Day passes quietly between the hoopla of Halloween and the warm nostalgia of Thanksgiving. In that way, the reserved nature of Veteran’s Day beautifully captures the quiet heroism of America’s war heros. However, it is also this quiet heroism that makes us vulnerable to forgetting how astonishingly important our men and women have been in protecting our interests as a country and in protecting our freedom. Regardless of any ambiguity of the purpose or politics of today’s war in Iraq and Afghanistan, there remains an undisputed and profound respect for our war heros that resonates throughout America.

    For me, the arrival of this year’s Veteran’s Day has stirred the emotions of deep appreciation towards military men and women and also leads me to ask myself an important question – am I living out my life in a way that justifies the pain, hardship and suffering that so many people have gone through to protect and preserve this freedom?

    It is clear, that as a citizen sitting on the sidelines of today’s war, I will never fully understand the intensity of what soldiers endure. In many ways it seems like life goes on in the US as if we are not at war at all or as if this war is in some other world far apart from our daily routine. To honor the sacrifice and hardship of our war heroes we can make every effort to understand their experiences and stories.

    This Veteran’s Day, I plan on honoring those who served our country by hearing their stories. The documentary films below tell the stories of vastly different foreign wars including accounts from WWII, Vietnam, Iraq, and Afghanistan. These SnagFilms offer a way to engage and inform vast audiences of the lives of our war heroes.
