We all should never forget and appreciate the sacrifices the men and women of our Armed Forces make and have made in the past. One Vietnam Vet told an amazing story of his first combat mission in the war.

This story should remind you that when you see someone who is a veteran of our armed services you should walk up to that person and simply say ‘thank you’.

It is sometimes hard to understand what members of the military have to go through to protect our freedoms. Some make the ultimate sacrifice and others come back to this country unappreciated by some. We should never let them feel unappreciated and we should remember the sacrifices they make.

The story in this video is a little graphic, but it still worth watching and quite an unbelievable story.
