On this holiday weekend.

Remember what this is all about

It isn't the Parades, because they were never in them

It isn't the cookouts, because they never got to do them

It isn't about hte paid day off.

It IS about all those gentle souls who never made back home

From a wooded Creek near Shiloh Church

From a Little Rocky Hill near a small town in PA.

From a Hill named Kettle

From a muddy ditch called a Trench in the Argonne

From a COLD town at Christmas time in Europe

From a frozen lake in Korea

From a muddy dike in a jungle rice paddy

From a sand dune

It is to remember all of them who gave their last Full Measure, so you could have a day to remember them by.

And hope that someday, we won't have another hill to take, a town to defend, or a field full of Poppies to cross.

Remember them...

Well said, Steve. It is a day of remembrance - at least it should be - of those who gave all in order for us to remain free.

Patriotism is supporting your country all the time, and your government when it deserves it. - Mark Twain

The cost of freedom is always high, but Americans have always paid it. And one path we shall never choose, and that is the path of surrender, or submission. - John F. Kennedy

There is nothing wrong with America that the faith, love of freedom, intelligence, and energy of her citizens can not cure. - Dwight David Eisenhower

I have long believed that sacrifice is the pinnacle of patriotism. -“Bob Riley

Who kept the faith and fought the fight; The glory theirs, the duty ours. - “Wallace Bruce

The patriots blood is the seed of the Freedom tree.  - “Thomas Campbell
