Memorial Day 2019 -- Remember All Who Served

Scott's View

We hope you have time to enjoy some of our shopping and travel benefits during the upcoming Memorial Day weekend. There’s also great gift savings for Dads and Grads. 
 
Our Cover Story, written by Brig. Gen. (Ret) Raymond E. Bell, Jr. , the father of our Content Director Cythia Bell-Bucha, is the moving story of Sgt. Frank Charrow, a fitting tribute to the 75th anniversary of D-Day, and Memorial Day, 2019. 

As all Veterans know, we do not need help remembering the true meaning of Memorial Day, but we all have a responsibility to make sure future generations never forget. For this nation, the events surrounding June 6, 1944 is a powerful history lesson written by those who made the ultimate sacrifice, so that we might live and enjoy the freedoms we hold so dear. Please pause at 3 pm local time on Memorial Day for a Moment of Remembrance for those families whose servicemembers gave their lives in defense of our freedoms. 

Have a peaceful and restful Memorial Day.

Battle of the Bulge Military & Veterans Life Cover Story: 75 Years Later, an Inside Look of Heroism During Battle of the Bulge Seventy-five years ago this month, on 17 January 1945, the so-called “Battle of the Bulge” had pretty much ended.  American and British troops had flattened the December German protrusion into Luxembourg and Belgium.  A desperate German rear guard was trying to stem an inexorable Allied advance eastwards.  Nowhere was that more evident than in the tiny Luxembourg village of Oberwampach located close to the Belgian border.  The next step to the rear for the Germans was into their homeland.  Their commanders were determined to stop the U.S. Army’s 358th Infantry Regiment of the 90th Infantry Division from driving them out of their defensive positions.
