Celebrating our veterans isn’t as easy as it sounds. Independence Day is easy. Memorial Day, a walk in the park, is easy. Even Flag Day is easy to celebrate, but Veteran’s Day comes with some built in challenges. The vets I’ve talked to tend to minimize their contributions, even those who deserve credit and attention. It is a kind of humility that ends conversations without really getting started. Maybe I need to change my approach. Maybe I need to head down to the local VFW post and try again.
In the meantime, I’ve found an hour of new music, well, new to us here on Wind & Rhythm I mean, that celebrates the actions and activities of our Nation’s veterans.
