Walsh County Spotlight The merchants below are / proud to announce: -Walsh County Veterans Service Office I December 7th 1941, was more than just a simple date in time and was even more than just the start of United States' entry into WWII. This date became the defining moment of what would become the greatest gen- eration. Generations are formed by the events that surround them when they are coming of age. For the greatest generation it was the Great De- pression and WWII that formed these once young men and women into who they would become Their defining moment was that infamous date in December over sixty years ago. It wash t the violence of that moment or the years to follow that made them into who they would become It was their decision to stand up for those that could not stand up for them- selves and their willingness to selflessly give themselves for service that made them into one of the most cherished and beloved generations that ever was. The Baby boomers were defined by the Vietnam War and the civil rights movement and one could argue that the assassination of President Kennedy on Nove, mber 22, 1963, was the first string in a long chain of events of the 1960 s and 1970 s that formed these young people into who they would become This generation of service members did not disappoint how- ever as they were sent over to a terrible conflict to fight and were very underappreciated or even hated for doing so. Forward now to modem times and again little has changed as the cur- rent generation ofmillennials are themselves being formed and molded by the events that surround them. September 11, 2001, will be this gen- eration's date of infamy that will be a defining moment for many. Again the young stepped up in an age of an all-volunteer military and selfless- ly took it upon themselves to defend the principles and liberties that we so enjoy in this country. So as we breeze past this December 7th let us at least take a moment to remember all the sacrifices and trials that these young service mem- bers go through in these defining moments, and the impact that their ac- tions have for all of us. They may have been defined by infamy but what they became was great.
