Memorial Day 2010


Click Cartoon for Larger Size
On this Memorial Day, there are no words adequate to describe the price of freedom and our inconceivable debt to those living and dead, soldiers and family members, who have paid it on our behalf.

Let their service and sacrifice inspire us all to give more than we take, to put others ahead of ourselves, to be grateful each day for this nation and our freedoms, and to be ever vigilant in their defense.

This is a great clip for Memorial Day - it's by a young lady from England, in honor of her great grandfather who lost his life in World War I. Great images & backstory - take it all in if you can. Thanks to all who put their lives on the line, and thanks to all of our fellow citizens who lost someone they love - they have sacrificed so much too.

All we have to do now is get all those who do not do any military time to know where they stand. No four years active duty honorable military service, "no job", no benefits, no welfare , no social security and no heath care.. I hate draft dodgers. Vietnam Vet USN

We must always respect and honor our military, living or gone. The freedoms that we have and are desperately trying to hold onto are thanks to their sacrifice. Let us neve forget that or fail to show gratitude.
