One Snowy Evening in Connecticut…A Young Marine Returns Home

This Heartwarming homecoming video was sent to me via email.

This young man, so loved and appreciated by his friends and family has a bright future, I’m sure.

El Marco put together a Christmas “photo-poem” for soldiers, combining pictures of Association of Living History members  that he ran into last summer, with a poem that he received via email, with this note attached:

PLEASE, would you do me the kind favor of sending this to as many people as you can? Christmas is coming soon and some credit is due to our U.S. service men and women for our being able to celebrate these festivities. Let’s try in a small way to pay a tiny bit of what we owe. Make people stop and think of our heroes, living and dead, who sacrificed themselves for us.

  1. Outstanding post, reflecting back to when I came home from combat in Vietnam-myself and 10-12 others were greeted with anti-war protest. I remember heading back home to no greetings of thanks for serving etc, no flags nothing.

    That was no problem because when I was greeted by my wife and child that was all that counted. My daughter was born on month after I arrived in Vietnam.

    God Bless our troops

    What a slap in the face that must have been after all you had been through.

    Belated thanks for your service.
