From one, a salute to you Wayne should be shown in every school assembly in the next week.
We are free for a reason.

I salute all my fellow brothers, and thank you for your courage and dedication in joining me to fight and keep our country free. We are a special breed, and I pray that our youth will rise up and fill in our footsteps. It has come time for us to pass this responsibility to a new and younger youth, to continue for what we fought for. My question is.... Will they step up?

I'm not sure the younger youth care as much as we did when we were young.

Just to be realistic... not every veteran deserves to be praised, honored and/or thanked.
There have been, (and are), a lot of slackers and ne'er-do-wells in the military.
Painting them all with a broad brush is a disservice, (and insulting), to the good ones.

While I do agree with all of that, I think that just thanking anyone who served is appropriate. Even the slackers and ne'er-do-wells did serve even if they were drafted.

I especially do not like the practice of laboring all service members, police, fireman, ect. as heros. Most are not.
