Memorial Day ~ Remembering those who gave their all for us.


This is what MEMORIAL DAY is about!

It’s not about barbecues and picnics!  It’s about remembering those who gave their ALL for us, for Country, for honor, for freedom.

As you enjoy your extended weekend ‘celebrations’ of the beginning of summer, PLEASE, at least pause for a moment, and remember those that have given their lives so you can live your lives with the freedoms you still have!  I would also ask that you teach your children and/or grandchildren what this day REALLY is about because if you don’t, who will?
Thank you and may America bless God!

In Memory of Vietnam VetsThe graphic says By Tribute To Our Soldiers

I, personally, have my own strong feelings about how our Nation treated then, and STILL treats our Vietnam Vets.  They have never received the respect that was due them.  They did the job they were sent to do.  And they did it with honor and distinction just like any other soldier has done before and after them.  (Sometimes, that homeless man or woman you try to ignore on the street, is a homeless Vietnam Vet with PTSD that has never been treated!)  

HOWEVER, as things are politically charged as they are today, they were just as much so and even WORSE then.  The same thing took place then as now; Hollywood know-it-alls that have NEVER WALKED A BLOCK let alone a mile in a soldiers boots, get on a platform, microphone in hand,
and spew their political rhetoric.

then STAND IN FRONT OF THEM!

  1. Thank you for this post. Serving in the military was the most wonderful time in my life. I was in the Air Force and felt I did not do what so many did. I watch the movie American Sniper last night with my family and though I could have lived without the F word (it would’ve been a pretty silent movie though) I suffered through that to see this awesome man who could not come back, and just when he made it back, someone took his life. Please pass my love and prayers to the family of Spc. Robert Reickhoff and all who have served! May the country rise up and defend those who defended us.
