REMEMBERING ON MEMORIAL DAY

MEMORIAL DAY HONORS THOSE WHO HAVE DIED FOR OUR USA

It used to be called Decoration Day right after the Civil War.  Now we call it Memorial Day.  It's all about remembering and honoring those men and women who have died for this country of ours.

There is no greater sacrifice than dying for others and dying to preserve the freedoms we believe in. I honor them with all my heart and soul.

This pic shows my part in fighting for this country, but I am lucky enough to be alive to write about it, and honor those who have fallen.

I would hope that you have some piece of family history still alive in your household if you have members who have served.  Our country is based on taking up arms to preserve our freedoms.  When the time comes, we have shown that we are ready, willing and able.

Rest in peace, all my brothers and sisters who have fallen to keep the rest of us safe and free.

  1. Del,
    Too many take their freedom for granted. This comes from thinking it is a right... which it definitely is not.

    Since the days of the Viet Nam war, too many have taken the attitude that America is guilty of being a warmongering country.

    They seem to think that ignoring a problem will make it go away.

    While I too don't like war, I know that sometimes bad things must be defended against.

    The real problem comes when the politicians start demanding that the military fight with "rules of engagement" and have no "collateral damages".

    The politicians are as ignorant about fighting a war as they are in legislating laws. They should be relegated to budgets and nothing else. Then we'd all be better off.
