The Hibernians have released a video for Veterans day recognizing the unique contributions that Irish Americans have made in service to America.
While recognizing and grateful for the sacrifices that Americans of every race, ethnicity, and religion have made in defense of our country, Irish America can take pride and have a very Celtic obligation of remembrance to those of our family, no matter how extended, who served.
It is incredible the prominent place that the Irish occupy on our nation’s rolls of honor, especially given that Irish immigrants and their descendants have frequently been accused of “divided loyalties” and not being “true Americans.”
It is regretful that the stories are shown in the video, and the thousands more, are not better known. We hope after watching the video you will consider sharing it with your family and friend; these are stories that need to be remembered.
We can offer our gratitude and pride in them and all Veterans.
