The transition from military to civilian life can be difficult for service men and women but even more so for veterans experiencing spinal cord injury or disease.
If you were to honor the memory of every soldier buried in Arlington National Cemetery with his or her own parade, you’d have to host more than 1,100 parades per day for the entire calendar year. And while each of those parades would no doubt be as appreciated and celebrated as the Memorial Day parades and events that will take place this weekend, perhaps you will consider honoring the fallen by supporting those who served beside them…and today live civilian lives with less than they need and deserve.
