Prompt inspired by: The Keystone Wounded Warriors
From their website:
"Keystone Wounded Warriors is a Eastern Pennsylvania based 501 (c)(3) nonprofit corporation that seeks to honor the daily sacrifices made by the brave men and women in all branches of the United States Military, but specifically those wounded on or after September 11, 2001. Keystone Wounded Warriors aids Wounded Warriors by raising public awareness and seeking the public’s support for programs and services that assist Wounded Warriors. Funds donated to Keystone Wounded Warriors are used to support local post-9/11 veterans and their families located in or with ties to Pennsylvania. The remaining funds are donated to national post-9/11 wounded veterans organizations.
Our warriors do an awe inspiring job in the face of their disabilities and difficulties transitioning into civilian life through dedication and commitment. Keystone Wounded Warriors strives to ease the burden on these heroes through focus in three major areas... Financially... Physically... Mentally..." 
Favoring peace above all else does not prevent me from having immense appreciation and respect for those who serve in our armed forces. It is not those who serve but the political agenda of those who order those who serve with whom I take issue. Especially now, in the wake of this horrific VA scandal, our military men, women and families need and deserve our help. Have a safe and happy Memorial Day...

    1. It may sound strange, but Memorial Day for me encompasses all those who have sacrificed... not just those of the United States. Thank you for writing such a beautiful piece. I was concerned that those not from the US would just skip this week's prompt. I am so grateful you chose to write. It means so very much meme... :)
