To our oldest generation:
Thank you for believing that freedom was worth fighting for.
To our youngest generation:
Thank you for volunteering to serve to protect our freedom.

On an observation helicopter, South Vietnam, June 1967.
Originally designated as "Missing in Action".
Also designated as "MIA: Declared Dead While Missing."
But now designated by our government as
"Unaccounted For" and "Non-recoverable."
Could we please just designate them as
"Veterans We'd Like to Have Had the Chance to Thank"?
