It’s always a good time to support our veterans, but this year is an important one, for it may be the final year to salute and thank the veterans of World War II.
Most men and women of the greatest generation are now more than 85-years old and once fought to preserve our very way of life.
Their courage and willingness to forged our country into the nation it is. Without their hard work and dedication to principles upon their return from the battlefields, we wouldn’t have the country that we have the privilege of living in today.
The Covington News’ Veteran’s Story columnist, Pete Mecca, himself a Vietnam veteran, has been writing about some of these World War II heroes for the past couple of years. We highly recommend you read his stories, dealing with the real life adventures of these brave and heroic men and women.
To begin 2014 we want to say thank you to all of our World War II veterans. Your service, we are sure, will never be fully appreciated.
If you have a World War II veteran in your family who is still alive, take a few minutes to tell him or her that you appreciate them — a little hug wouldn’t be so bad either.
