Hymn To The Fallen

June 29, 2021

Most of you have heard pieces of John Williams’ Hymn To The Fallen via the film Saving Private Ryan. Here is a wonderful video with the full score set against a backdrop of photos that are sure to move you. If you are an American, the pictures and sheer numbers will bring you to tears. I am equally sure that this video will resonate deeply in other parts of the world as well. If you watch just one video this year, watch this one and ponder the history and future of our great nation. I personally thank you for doing so.

The next time you see one of our veterans in public (regardless of age, rank or sex), I also strongly urge you to go up straight away to that person and thank them sincerely for their service. Believe me, that small genuine act would mean a lot to so many.

    Thank you Allen, I just can not help or control my tears flow. Seeing those number of Our Fallen Hero’s during our time in need: Given their all for such a great cause. I thank them all, from the bottom of my heart. I am adding my brother USMC Luis A. Garcia (Agent Orange), and our dear friend from Haiti, Francis (DOA)1st day in Viet Nam. I served 1965-69 as a Radioman in the USCG. Best regards and again thank you for posting it. Ernest
