America's Veterans: It Is You (2016)

by Norm Beznoska Jr., Contributing Author : It Is You, America’s Veterans, whom we salute and honor this Veterans Day (and every day), for your patriotism, love of country, and willingness to serve and sacrifice for the common good. It Is You, who proudly wore and wear, the uniform of the United States Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force and Coast Guard. It Is You who left the safety and comfort of your homes to defend our homeland.

It Is You, America’s doughboys, who fought in the bloody trenches of Belleau Wood and Meuse Argonne, and flew the ‘wood-and-wire’ planes of the Lafayette Escadrille WWI in 1917.

It Is You, Sailors and Marines and 1,100 hundred shipmates, who awoke that morning on December 7,1941, aboard the Battleship USS Arizona manning your battle stations, fighting the Japanese sneak attack on Pearl Harbor in WW II. And, you still man your battle stations today aboard the USS Arizona, beneath the waters of Pearl Harbor, Hawaii.

It Is You, Coastguardsmen, who protected our coasts and naval convoys from U-boat attacks in WWII.

It Is You, Army and Marine battling bas***ds of Bataan and Corregidor, who stopped the Japanese advance for three months, before being captured and tortured in the infamous ‘Bataan Death March’. It Is You, Navy and Army pilots, who sank the Japanese fleet in the Battle of Midway. It is You Soldiers and Marines, who stormed the beaches of Guadalcanal, Tarawa, Saipan, Iwo Jima and Okinawa. It Is You Navy gunners who shot down Kamikaze suicide plane attacks against the Pacific Fleet. It Is You Air Force pilots and crew, who bombed Japan into submission, ending WWII in the Pacific.

It Is You, Soldiers, driving Patton’s tanks, beating back Rommel’s Panzers in North Africa, Italy and France. It is You, Air Force crews who flew bombing missions all over Europe in WWII. It Is You, soldiers and paratroopers, who hit the beaches of Africa, Italy; and Normandy, France; and fought the Battle of the Bulge to help end WWII in Europe.

It is You, Soldiers and Marines, who fought to save South Korea from North Korean Communist invaders in 1950; and who landed at Inchon, to recapture South Korea. It Is You, the “Chosin Few”, who fought a million Chinese Communist invaders at the Chosin Reservoir, in North Korea. It Is You, Navy and Air Force pilots, who fought Communist MIG jet planes over Korea in 1952-53.

It Is You, Soldiers of the First Air Cavalry, who repelled North Vietnamese troops in 1965 in the Ie Drang Valley, first major battle of the Vietnam War. It Is You Marines and Soldiers, who fought the Tet Offensive to recapture Hue, South Vietnam. It Is You, Air Force and Navy pilots who flew thousands of missions for eight years over North Vietnam. And It Is You, 573 American POWs, who spent years of torture in captivity at the “Hanoi Hilton” prison in North Vietnam until 1973.

It is You, Soldiers and Marines, in 1983, who saved 1,000 US students on the Island of Grenada from Cuban communist troops. It is You, Soldiers, Marines, and Navy SEALS in the Persian Gulf War in 1991, who rescued Kuwait from Saddam Hussein and Iraq’s invasion. In 2001, It Is You, Soldiers, Marines, and Navy SEALS in Operation Enduring Freedom, who fought Osama Bin Laden and Al Qaeda Islamic terrorists in Afghanistan.

It Is You, Soldiers, Marines, Air Force and Navy pilots and SEALS in Operation Iraqi Freedom who deposed Iraq’s dictator, Saddam Hussein in 2003. And, It Is You, Navy SEAL Team 6, who on May 2, 2011, killed Osama Bin Laden, the Islamic terrorist leader and 911 murderer.

It Is You, Veterans, America’s finest, who still stand guard 24x7, fighting to protect us from terrorist enemies the world over. And, It Is WE AMERICAN VETERANS, who would gladly serve our country once again; never bowing to a foreign prince and never apologizing for America. And never, ever, leaving four American hostages (Iraq War Veteran Marine Sgt.Amir Hekmati; Christian Pastor Saeed Abedini; Washington Post Journalist Jason Rezaian; and ex-FBI agent Robert Levinson) behind by a feckless president, to be tortured for years in Iran.
