When I Come Home – a Veteran’s Day Video. Don’t Miss This.

In recognition of Veteran’s Day, we are honored to share filmmaker Robert Sallin‘s moving video created to express his deep appreciation of his brothers and sisters in arms in the Marine Corp and the Air Force, having served in both of these branches of the military.

Robert’s video has been seen by senior members of both political parties, including President Bill Clinton and the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

Robert’s wife Sandra Sallin, a contributor to Midlife Boulevard, graciously offered this video for us to share with our readers because, in her words, “I want to spread thankfulness.”

We are thankful for Robert and Sandra Sallin and this beautiful video.

If you or a member of your family is a veteran, please leave a name in a comment so we can give thanks to them from afar.
