Default Honoring wwii veterans

Keith Leibovitz's youngest nephew, Seth, has been working on a full-length feature documentary about aprogram to honor WWII vets and has now released a trailer, and it would really help out if you watched it in full, and spread it around to otherfolks who would enjoy it. Working on this has been a very emotional experience, because the story is so, so powerful. I think you'll agree.

What a wonderful project! I have a good friend who is a retired AF pilot and he is one of the volunteers flying these heroes up to DC. They do need support via contributions to achieve their goal as many chapters are running out of funds. I am sending your link to my dad who is a WW2 Navy Veteran from the Pacific. I am trying to get him up to DC for his 87 birthday! The number of WW2 Veterans is diminishing daily as time moves forward. These men/women are the reason we enjoy the freedom we have today. I will always be grateful for their sacrifices.

I am a volunteer for Grateful American Coin and my own personal goal is to Thank and give a Grateful American Challenge Coin to the ones I encounter at TV. The money we raise from these coins goes to helping our wounded warriors via two foundations dedicated to that purpose. Happy Memorial Day - I plan to be over in Bushnell today to honor the Fallen Heroes resting at The National Cemetery.

Very emotional video clip. I passed it along to about 30 people in my address book and I know they, in turn, will do the same. Happy Memorial Day
