Nothing inspires more than the tomb of the unknown and the Iwo Jima Memorials


Memorial Day, formerly known as Decoration Day.
A day set aside to honor the men and women who have given their all for our country. This is a worthy honor. All of our citizens have never agreed on a war. Even WWI and WWII had folks against them. But whether you agree with the wars or not, the combat or not, you are very ignorant if you do not respect the men and women who GO where their government sends them, and do the job they have been trained to do. The Soldier, Sailor, Coastie and Marine does what he is ordered to do, and is not political. He/she goes into harm’s way at the orders of both Democrats and Republicans.
If you have read my journals you will know that I am probably more Libertarian/Republican in my political beliefs. I have voted for Democrats and Republicans, and I have supported them all. BUT when it comes to honoring the Vets both standing and fallen every United States Citizen should rally and do just that. HONOR OUR FALLEN. Some do not believe it, but if it was not for the fallen we would not be free today. Europe would not be free and Asia would be dominated by one power. For all the people who cry how bad the USA is, I wish they could see what condition the world would be without us, our military and our fallen. (WE also feed a good part of the world).
So today, Memorial Day 2009, try to join hands. Try to forget your hatred for political leaders, try to forget your hatred for those whom you do not agree with. For today, HONOR OUR FALLEN. We have left many a brave man/woman on foreign soil, who went because they were asked to go, and gave the supreme sacrifice.
If you read this and have lost a family member, I am sorry and I want to honor that person’s memory. GOD BLESS YOU AND YOUR FAMILY FOR THEIR SACRIFICE. If you wore the uniform, GOD BLESS YOU FOR YOUR CONTRIBUTION.
PLEASE GOD, BLESS AMERICA. Bless the VET. BUT MOST OF ALL BLESS THE FAMILYS WHO GAVE THE ULTIMATE! The families who gave: SON, Daughter, Husband, Wife, Mother or Father. Bless and Comfort them.
Thanks for looking in on the Log.
