Memorial Day means different things to different people. For many, it is the start of the summer season, an annual trip to the beach, a three-day weekend, or a great excuse for a barbecue.
In my family, it meant more. I grew up in a military family. My father and grandfathers served. Every couple of years we would move to a new base and start the process of finding new friends and sometimes finding old ones from earlier postings.
I was eight years old when my father went to serve in Vietnam. I was too young to understand the politics at the time, but I remember being angry at people I saw on television saying that soldiers in Vietnam were bad people. MY Dad wasn’t.
I remember being afraid when I saw the green military sedan driving past and we would stop playing and watch to see if it was going to someone’s house the green sedan stopping meant somebody’s father was dead or hurt. I remember not knowing what to say to a friend that had lost his father and feeling guilty because I was so happy it wasn’t my Dad.
I have long wanted to do something to honor, not only my father and all those that have served their country in the military, but also the families that stay behind and wait. This video, The Path of the Warrior, is a small token of my respect and gratitude. I hope you will forward this page or at least the video link, to all those you know who either serve in the armed forces or wait behind.
