My Message to U.S. Veteran's on LinkedIn on this Memorial Day Weekend

As a U.S. Navy veteran and the founder of the largest military and veterans group on LinkedIn, US Veteran, I do what I have done every year and took some time to send out a message to our over 22,000 veteran members.

To all the our Troops, Veterans and Families I wish you all the best this Memorial Weekend. - JW

This Years US Veteran Post for Memorial Day 2012

I was looking around for something inspirational to send out this Memorial Day Weekend and found this small paragraph by 3rd Grader Ali M.


"As the flowers rest on the decorated graves and the sunlight shines on the beautiful sailboats,

Uncle Sam whispers in my ear about how we should care for the soldiers and remember the ones that have died.

Swimming pools open, BBQs fry. Today is the day to think of what they have done for us.

There are blurs of red, white and blue marching down the street and flags are lowered at half-mast. But we should always remember and never forget what set us free, from this very day on."


© 2001 Ali M., 3rd Grader, Academy Elementary School, Madison, Connecticut.


How incredible this 8 or 9 year old was to write this wonderful and imaginative description of Memorial Day, but what really came to mind for me was that Ali M. and her dream of this perfect day of remembrance is exactly what our veterans put their lives on the line for.


So this Memorial Day lets remember the veterans and be grateful for this wonderful life they have given their lives to protect.


I will be covering the Walk for Warriors Event for New Directions in Los Angeles, CA on Memorial Day. If in LA come out and see me and join in... http://www.walkforwarriors.org

Where ever you are and what ever you are doing.. Please have an incredible weekend honoring our fallen heroes.


Warmest Regards,

The Walk for Warriors event was a huge hit.... 900 veterans, their families and supporters showed up for the walk / run. I will post the story and video as soon as I get it out... thanks to all that helped.

Thank you for the very kind words Bill. Let me say that Bill, Beth Anne and Sossi are such wonderful people. They make not dime one for helping out on this site and they do a tireless job of keeping things square. Believe me they each do more than I do.

They are great people with a lot of integrity and have become good friends and salute them...

JW, thank you for your service to the USA but also for the spirit of service and honor that you bring to this endeavor called CREPIG. You are the leader and founder and quietly the message you bring is one of service and honor to one another. If this type of code were more commonplace in commerce, we would be better off.

Best wishes to you sir and your loved ones.
