Joseph F. Ambrose wearing his own US Army WW1 uniform and equipment, while attending the official dedication of the Vietnam Veterans dedication in November 1982. He is clutching a folded US Flag that covered the casket of his son Clement A. Ambrose, who was Killed In Action in Korea on 14 February 1951.
Good morning all. On this day 98 years ago, at the 11th hour on the 11th day of the 11th month, the guns of August fell silent after four long, brutal years of the Great War. To all of you who have worn and continue to wear the uniform, the words “thank you for your service” are completely inadequate to express our gratitude. And I hope that those who languish in VA hospitals or suffer in silence elsewhere will be remembered, comforted and rescued from their shameful abandonment. G-d bless them all. Have a great weekend, kids.
From the Trigger Reset family…GOD bless you and give you peace. There are not words adequate to express our gratitude for what you and your families have done for our nation, and for us. We thank you. We salute you. Know that you and your families are in our prayers and thoughts…and not only on this day.
