Hollywood actor Chris Pratt did not skip commemorating late members of the United States Armed Forces, on Veterans Day.
The actor, who gained international fame for starring as ‘Peter Quill / Star-Lord‘ in the fan-favorite film ‘Guardians of Galaxy‘ plus various Marvel films including ‘Avengers: Infinity War,’ and ‘Avengers: Endgame‘ jumped into his verified Instagram account and released a couple of shots showing how the members of US Armed Forces are self-forgetful.
Alongside the photos, Pratt added a lengthy caption in order to mark the day:
“America’s exceptional armed forces have altered the course of the world for the better. From the Union Army defeating slave-owning confederates, to the Greatest Generation and her Allies vanquishing the Nazis or our special operators hunting down the perpetrators of 9/11. We count the names of each fallen solider lest they be countless.”
Describing the members as good guys who run to the sound of gunfire, the actor, whose latest film ‘Tomorrow War‘ has been set to release through Amazon Prime Video, stated that he thinks that as a US citizen he did not do well to teach their youth the “selfless sacrifice of the armed service members in the face of oppressive evil.” He encouraged his fans and followers with the following words:
“So join me in showing support for our fallen. Take a quiet moment to really consider the sacrifice. And if you use the comments section on posts like this to bitch and moan about America please understand there are countries in the world where criticizing your government will get you killed or imprisoned. Criticism is a right and necessity in amending the flawed systems of man.”
Chris Pratt, who is gearing up to appear in the upcoming Marvel film ‘Thor: Love and Thunder,’ concluded his words as follows:
“So by all means, let your voice be heard. But never forget your right to free expression is paid for in blood. May God give their souls rest, and may they live in our memories this weekend and always.”
