Every President has been part of the ceremonial duties of honoring the men and women who have served.  I looked carefully at the pictures of the most recent military recognition of those honored and visited by our Heads of State.

There have been a number of Medal of Honor recipients in the last few years, but some of the most warmly human interaction that I could find would have to be the pictures of Pres. George Bush.

I believe that on this Veteran’s Day, it would be good to see a few of these pictures between a Commander in Chief and those who served…often giving so much sacrificially.

  1. Thank you for your comment. Yes, it is difficult with all that a President of any country has to do…and places he has to be to find time for the common man…but how important this is to show genuine concern. Especially with those who have suffered so much, it is even more important.

  2. Thank you for the moving photos of the former President, getting involved with those he was talking to – showing respect with the warmth of touch too.
