FOR THE TROOPS -Walsh County Veterans Service Office Remembering the fallen Pride. Honor. Duty. Many words can be used to describe those who served their country in times of great need. Some served because they wanted to; others because they had to, and on the last Monday in May, we remember those who have paid the ultimate price from the beginning to today. I attended the All-Faiths Memorial Day service at Adams Lutheran Church on Sunday. The church was full and those in attendance remembered in reverence those who have passed both veterans and their spouses. It is with heavy hearts we remember the long history of war and sacrifices and it is with great thought we should move/brward in an attempt to not repeat history. Attending a Memorial Day service is the least anyone can do to show support for fallen veterans. You may never have served in the military, no one in your family may have served either, but we are all citizens of the same nation, and protect the same freedoms. If you didn't take the opportunity to attend a service this past weekend, be sure to mark on your calendar for next year and keep in mind what they have gone through to give you that opportunity. Veterans are a group of people that tend to be self-sacrificing to some degree. They all agree that there are "more deserving" veterans then themselves in the world; therefore, most veterans will not take advantage of the benefits made available to them by the state and federal governments. If I never have an impact on the world, I certainly hope I can get a single phrase to come across: You deserve it. My message to every veteran, to those of us who broke before we could get to where we wanted to go, to those who crossed the big blue ocean, to those who lost limbs and sanity only to come home to an unappreciative country...You deserve it. Please take an opportunity to visit with a Veterans Service Officer (VSO) at any level, cotinty, state, federal. Talk to them. Ask questions. Tell them the truth about what happened in service. If you have evidence, you are halfway there. Every county in North Dakota has a VSO and Fargo is blessed with a very competent Regional Office that houses National and Department Service Officers. Contact a service officer today, especially if you have never done so. 1 wish everyone a wonderful and blessed Memorial Day.
