The Way We Get By

If you haven’t seen this documentary, you need to.

It follows three elderly people as they volunteer welcoming back troops or sending troops off to both Iraq and Afghanistan at Bangor International in Maine.  To me it is amazing that the oldest living generation can still give of themselves but the younger generations can only sit back and talk about the pros and cons of these wars.  I really don’t care what your take is on the wars, this documentary isn’t about that…it’s about the people who have found the importance in giving something to those who give us so much.

Maybe it’s because of the reception or lack there of for our Korea and Vietnam vets that the generation who fought in Korea and Vietnam aren’t the ones out there helping welcome the troops home or being the last civilian that some of them see for a year or so…

    Hi there buddy! I decided I might leave a quick comment seeing that I have put in the better part of the previous 30 minutes reading through your posts. I’m totally liking just what you have made here with your blog and I trust you’ll keep writing it. Well that’s pretty much all I’ve got to say! Cheers again and very nice to ‘meet’ you 🙂
