Friday Sinema: Not Forgotten

Veteran’s Day is Monday. This was made in 2013. So many more veterans now. So many heroes. Thank you all. And if you are out and about here in the States this weekend and you see members of the American Legion handing out poppies, smile, stop to visit for a minute, and if you can, make a donation. They’ll give you the poppy for free as a remembrance but your donations go a long way in funding their programs for veterans, at VA hospitals, and for the children and families of veterans.

  1. Thank you to all who served. And thank you, Silver, for reminding us all about the importance of Veteran’s Day. :hugs:

      Thank you for remembering. ❤

      • Yesterday, at the Walmart, the DAV was handing out blue Forget me Nots instead of poppies. I donated and spent some time talking to a lovely man who was an Army Vietnam Veteran 50 years ago. When he said 50 years, I was thinking Korea and then I remembered that I am almost 50 and it was Vietnam. He must’ve noticed the look on my face because he said ‘yeah, it doesn’t seem that long ago, does it?’ It really doesn’t. =o(

        • Silver James says:

          Yeah. We entered Viet Nam with advisors in the late 50s and finally brought everyone home after the debacle that was the fall of Saigon in 1975, my last year of college.

          I think the poppies are an American Legion thing and the forget-me-nots are DAV. But yeah, they all have stories to tell and I’ve stood and listened more than once.
