In my life I've had the honor of meeting some amazing men who served our nation in her greatest hour of need. Men like J Haggerman ( Navy demolition man, Original Seals ) Philip Copeland ( B-17 101st completed 26 missions over Germany ) Dick Winters of The Band Of Brothers, John Boyer Arden Forest ( Battle of the Bulge ) .... men of honor... Thank you ..... @j.r.phillips1 Great content....👍🏼👊#Repost @j.r.phillips1 (@get_repost)
Heroes walk among us. We see them at the local diner, we pass them on street, as if they're just another regular person, although in their younger years they were protectors of the weak. They were our nation's finest. Now, they don't look for recognition, they don't ask for a handout. They live by a code and a sense of duty. What they did for us in a far off land in their teens and early 20s is something they're proud of, think of often, but they don't let it define who they are. When they got home they went to back to work, they lived their lives with purpose, and have no regrets for how they sacrificed their youth.
They live for the future and are productive members of our society.
These men are warriors. Men of honor. Quiet professionals. Our generation should learn from the old breed. We should think a little less about ourselves and more about the ones around us, our nation, and how we can serve others more than we serve ourselves. .
We at @zerofilmsproductions And @theveteransproject Through @theunitedfoundationorg Are putting together an event in Texas this summer, honoring the greatest generation through their stories, in their own words. The war as they remember it! #military #history #warrior #WW2 #WWII #heroes #veterans #film #doc #filming #photography
