A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words – No Generation Gap

Many thanks to my colleague, Richard Rhodes, for making me aware of this moving photo, entitled: “Generations of Valor.” The photo was taken during a Veterans’ Day Observance in 2004, but worth reposting here in light of the continuing sacrifice by our troops in Iraq.

"Pearl Harbor survivor Houston James of Dallas is overcome with emotion as he embraces Marine Staff Sgt. Mark Graunke Jr. during the Dallas Veterans Day Commemoration at Dallas City Hall on Thursday. Sgt Graunke, who was a member of a Marine ordnance-disposal team, lost a hand, leg and eye while defusing a bomb in Iraq in July of last year."

Let’s remember the hundreds of heroes like Marine Staff Sgt. Mark Graunke, Jr. as they work to overcome their wounds and find a place of service and a career after their time of military service has been completed.

Have you considered pro-actively seeking to hire one of these men and women who have been wounded while serving our country?
