I know many of you have good stories about military men and women that you have lost. Now is the time to share them with all.
Following the pilot’s memorial service last Thursday, it was clear to all who heard that every one of our pilots and their loved ones want and deserve a better future for them. By honoring their sacrifice and being grateful, we can achieve that.
Here’s how to make the most of Memorial Day Weekend.
First, show your gratitude in words or deeds. Make sure you ask people how their family and loved ones felt about them. People ask me questions all the time how I’ve been affected by having lost someone. Of course you know. My mom, uncle, and aunt were all killed in the airplane crash of course, but every day I think about them and what they did for me. They were an absolute blessing to me and my family. I would do anything for them and I’d take a bullet for them.
Second, do something that is meaningful to you, which can help others. You can plan a positive event. Whether it’s a volunteer day at a soup kitchen, volunteer at your local children’s hospital, or a bake sale, making things better for other people will help you feel good about yourself and others.
Most importantly, do one small thing to help someone else. When it comes to families of veterans, they often mention something you did. Did you donate money for a veterans organization? Why not take the opportunity this Memorial Day weekend to donate more money for veterans of veterans charities? You don’t have to give the full amount of a couple thousand dollars, but by giving just a little, you can make a difference.
Joining me this week to discuss all of these issues is former colonel, 3rd brigade, Illinois National Guard Lance Cpl. John Hill, III, the author of the book Operation John Hill: Helping Reunite the Lost.
