A Fellow Veteran
A Tribute to a true American Hero
This Vietnam Vet is undoubtedly one of the bravest Americans that's ever lived! Never in American history has this nation been so against its military, and it's never happened since. He could have burned his draft card, remained in school or defected to Canada, but he chose to bravely ANSWER THE CALL made by his Nation. Meanwhile the pubic held blame against him and his fellow soldiers for the decisions made by the politicians of the day. This brave individual stood with his fellow soldiers and gave everything he had. His sacrifice then has made America and our freedom stronger. SP4 Lee Henderson Russ, today is the very day you had made the ultimate supreme sacrifice.You gave your life for your country. So many years ago, and so far from your home and loved ones. A fellow veteran pays tribute today to your memory, your bravery, your honor, and your commitment to duty and freedom. Thank you for answering the call. May you rest well in Gods loving embrace Brave Solider. For you Sir ARE a TRUE American hero whose sacrifice has made a difference. Today you are remembered by a fellow veteran and proud American. Tomorrow you shall not be forgotten by a now grateful nation. Because in the rising and setting of the sun, we shall remember you. In the blowing of the wind and the chill of the winter, we shall remember you. In the opening of the buds, the blueness of the sky, the rustle of the leaves and the blanketing of the snow, we shall remember you. When we are weary, lost , and sick at heart, when we have joys to share , we shall remember you. For as long as we live you too shall live, for you are a part of us always. May God bless you and bring peace to your friends, family and loved ones.
