The Things They Carry with Them and the Things They Bring Back

They bring back more than mementos that end up fading in scrapbooks.  And they always leave behind something they can never get back.  It’s easy to miss this among the flag waving, parades, speeches and ceremonies.    Those of us who have not shared these  experiences simply cannot comprehend what they have given.  But we don’t need to understand to show out gratitude.

I found the religious card and passes in a wallet that my Father carried while serving in the Army Air Corps in England during World War Two.  The other pictures are of relatives and are from various wars and service branches.
