Dan Crenshaw Provides a Glimpse Into a Combat Veteran’s Memorial Day Thoughts

Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

This being Memorial Day, I was real proud of myself because the first thing I thought to do when I got up out of bed was to put up the flag in front of my house. Then I got online, went to Twitter, and the first thing I saw was a thread by Texas Congressman Dan Crenshaw, himself a Navy SEAL and veteran of three deployments to Afghanistan, remembering his fellow SEALs who did not make the trip home. I was going to write something myself this morning, but after seeing this I figure you don’t really need anything from me today.

Much has been written over the years about how reluctant combat veterans typically are to talk about their experiences in war. If you wonder what the combat veteran men and women you have known were thinking about on Memorial Day, Rep. Crenshaw’s thread, copied here so that those who do not habit Twitter can see it, will give you some idea. Please read it all the way through.

Never forget.

That is all.
