  1. I have walked through the Valley of the Shadow of Death, past the twin pillars of fire at the Gates of Hell, and descended into the depths of that Abyss. There we have done battle with the Furies, some have fallen. Words cannot express what it is like to hold a fallen comrade in your arms, hear him call for his Mother, pray with him that God will take away the pain, and listen as he begs you to take him home because he is cold. Nor can mere words convey the emotions you experience as you watch the last breath of life leave the body, see the eyes go cold and gray, then feel the gentle whisper of the wind as the spirit departs the body. I have avenged my fallen comrades. The enemy has known true fear, and experienced the vicious taste of my wrath. They have learned I will show no mercy. But it did not bring them back. My experience has taught me two lessons; the first is that life is short and should be enjoyed; the second is that Freedom is not free. It is paid for with blood and the sacrifice of those who stand on the line and say nothing crosses me on my watch. If you want past me you must go through me and I will not go quietly into the night. Today I enjoy the beauty of a soft rain on a lazy afternoon. I am grateful that God has allowed me to come home to be one of the “Returned”. As you go your ways thank those who have served and if you have a moment take time to “Remember the Fallen”.
  2. We know how good their food is, we know they are a rebel establishment that upholds their own principles in the face of social challenges, and now we know their feet are firmly planted in their support of our military.

  3. That time of year again, another holiday. Parades, cookouts, parties....but what was this really all about? It started as a way to remember the Union Army dead from the war. Widows and others would go out and decorate their relatives graves, if they could. Slowly, it evolved into what is today just a party weekend. Remember them... That young farm boy fighting the Redcoats, and freezing in a Delaware river The Militia Man trying to defend against a British Army burning the nation's capital The trooper riding around in Mexico The boys in both Blue and Butternut/Gray Those ex-cowboys running up Kettle Hill Those Doughboys, away from home for the first time Those Dog Faced GIs that Ernie Pyle loved Those Chesty Puller led Marines, who merely advance in a different direction Those Grunts, wading around in some bug infested rice paddy Those Troops called out to save another country from ruin. Those that drove hundreds of miles in a sandstorm to free a land Remember all of those Gentle souls who would never make it back home, to see that parade, to go to that cookout... And hope someday, we will never have to Charge up a hill Wade in a muddy trench Storm a beach Fly in a burning plane And any other acts of war.... Remember the ones who gave all they could, so you could have a holiday today.
  4. Memorial Day This is not a day of celebration, this is not a day to say "Happy Memorial Day", as we often see the banners streaming across the door way of a big box store, or your car dealers lot, "Happy Memorial Day!". My friends, there is nothing happy about it. This day is not a happy occasion to celebrate. It is a day of solemn remembrance for those who gave their lives under the banner of our nation. I am taken back by the celebratory mood that surrounds one of the most profound annual holidays in our nations docket of patriotic remembrances. Photo: 16-year-old Deandra Christiansen, whose veteran father, Eric Christiansen, passed away in April 2013 at the age of 45. The teenager was among hundreds of relatives who gathered at Great Lakes National Cemetery in Holly, Michigan. Memorial Day, a day of memorializing the men and women who died while in service. This is a serious day, a day that, in a perfect world we should never have to recognize. But the reality is our country has been at the tip of the spear in conflicts around the world since the time of our existence as a nation. And we have lost many Americans. In today's challenging domestic environment it's even more crucial than ever to give our attention to the service members who have given all to our nation in order to ensure that the citizens of our nation can go about our daily lives, living and enjoying the fruits of labor that our military and the men and women who serve have provided, and continue to provide. All too often many people in our nation will forget what this day is all about, the youth today are losing sight of what it means to give, to sacrifice, to put the person standing beside them first, instead of putting themselves first. As adults, we need to remind our youth constantly that we live in a very exceptional country, and they should take nothing for granted. We should teach them the importance of our military, and we should remind them that if for one day our military stopped working, that would be the day life as they know it would change in an instant. Our enemies would exploit the weakness, and over run our shores. Our military is a great wall, a barrier between us and the bad actors of the world. Sometimes our military has to take the fight to them, instead of letting them come here to our nation. And our men and women have given their lives on some far off piece of land in order to ensure our safety here at home. We need to drive that message home to our own kids, their friends, and even often times, the adults around us. Photo: Christian Golcyznski accepts his fathers flag, Christian is one youth who will never forget the true meaning of Memorial Day. Lets enjoy the day off, lets enjoy being in the company of the ones we love, but the whole while, lets not let the feeling of solemness, and remembrance leave our hearts. We owe those who are no longer with us, that. Just one day is all they are asking. Memorial Day, May 28th 2018. I pray that God will keep in a very special place those who died in service and long after, for they are the ones who gave of themselves selflessly, and they will be "Forever Young". And we'd like to ask all who read this to pray or offer a word of thanks at your barbecue for our troops both past and present, and set out an empty table setting over an empty chair at your dinner table, in memory, and in hope that our men and women serving today will always return home safe, and whole in mind and body. Also may God Bless our great and very special nation, and may He protect those in harms way as they serve our country and its people today, and into the future. Posting in this topic Please post your feelings and memories in this topic, also please post the names and images of loved ones and friends lost during military service. Thank you all for being here, and helping us preserve the memories of those who served.

  5. We clicked our boots together but some of those boots came home empty.

Feel free to share anything related to Memorial Day as well, perhaps you have some historical information regarding this very important holiday, or more important facts that are worthy of reading and viewing.

  8. My brother sent this to me on Monday. Had to share it with y'all. Although this is a Canadian production, it so needs to be seen for our own Memorial Day. We are indebted to so many. May we be ever grateful and NEVER forget. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=2kX_3y3u5Uo
  9. Memorial Day is less than a week away. Received this from a Navy buddy-
  10. My good friend John Moody normally starts this topic every Friday but he's stuck in traffic leaving Mount Vernon near Washington D.C. With any luck he'll be rolling in to our house tomorrow and we're going to join 400,000 of our closest friends for the 99th running of the Indianapolis 500 on Sunday before he heads back to Alabama. So what's on your agenda for this Memorial Day weekend?
  11. Memorial Day, a day of remembrance and honoring those who have put it all on the line and who paid the ultimate price while serving under the flag of The United States of America. I have mixed emotions about this day. As we roll through the daily grind of holding down a day job, we all love to have that "Monday" off and spend it with our families, and with hobbies such as woodworking, boating and camping and many other activities we Americans enjoy during this extended weekend. It's the official kick off to summer as well. But as I walked through the front doors of a major home center this morning looking for some supplies to complete some long standing "Honey-Do" list that I have been trying to knock down for years but just never seems to end, I spot a big colorful sign at the entrance of our local home center and the sign states in big bold happy letters, "HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY!". Happy? There is nothing "Happy" about this most solemn of days contained in our annual calender of holidays. What is "Happy" about this day? This one day we are supposed to take time and reflect upon those who gave their life defending our country, and protecting us from the very bad people of this world, happy? What is "Happy" about men and women losing their life before their life even began, many in their teens, and some cases even under aged, yet they wanted to serve our country so bad, they lied about their age to get into the service. What is happy about a day that we are supposed to memorialize dead Americans, most who died for a righteous cause, and many who may not have. There is nothing happy about this day my friends. Sure, my family and I will enjoy our "Monday Off" because we will be with each other, but we will also be attending a function in honor of our dead Americans where the event is sure to be solemn. For my wife and I, we will carry a heavy heart throughout the day, and our children will be encouraged to keep those same sentiments in their hearts as well. Do not think that for one instance if our military was not standing post with rifle in hand, that our enemies would just sit by and do nothing. The only reason we are able to live our lives day in and day out, without worries, able to go about our day to day tasks of visiting a Starbucks before work, seeing a movie with our family, or the simple task of having a restful sleep during the night, all of those simple things we take for granted, are completely owed to those who protect us every day. Lets enjoy the day off, lets enjoy being in company of the ones we love, but the whole while, lets not let the feeling of solemness, and remembrance leave our hearts. We owe those who are no longer with us, that. Just one day is all they are asking. Memorial Day, May 25th 2015. May God always bless the men and women who serve our country, and may He keep in a very special place those who died in service and long after, for they are the ones who gave of themselves selflessly, and they will be "Forever Young". And we'd like to ask each and every one to pray at your barbecue for our troops both past and present, and set out an empty setting over an empty chair at your dinner table, in memory, and in hope that our men and women serving today will all come home very soon.
  12. I have been quite behind in doing my post lately. Wasn't sure if I was going to get fired or not, but I hope to be on the mend enough to get things back in the grove. I had worn through the bone on my right knee and it just got to the point I couldn't stand to be up on it. I had a full knee replacement just over a week ago and all is going well. Long way to go but making progress everyday. I have climbed the stairs into and out of the house several times now, quite a bit of walking and the best therapy I like is sitting in the porch swing. They tell me to put my foot down and lightly swing back and forth the help stretch the muscles so I can get the bend back. So yesterday I was in the swing quite a bit. As for working in the shop no shop work yet, but my two sons have been filling in and keeping things running. They have done four shows for me and we have sold numerous pieces out of the shop. I told them we are now Cutting Board Dynasty and I was going to be like Phil on Duck Dynasty, sit in the recliner and say, "happy, happy, happy". But even though I am out of my shop, we here at TPW always want to know what other Patriot Woodworkers are doing on their shops. So share with us your plans for this Memorial Day long weekend. Of course we are want to take time and remember those who paid the ultimate price for our freedom. I hope you will do that over this weekend and remember family members and friends who served our great country and paid the priced of freedom with their lives. WhT other plans do you have for this weekend, are you starting a new project, finishing a project, building jigs, doing home improvement, yard work, shop remodeling, or just sitting in the porch swing and enjoying some BBQ? We want to know and looking forward to sharing in your weekend project so get busy and tell us what is going on in your Patriot Woodworker Shop. I'll be in the porch swing checking often to see who shares with us.
  13. Dear Patriot Woodworker's and visitors. We are featuring videos we have found to represent the major wars in our nations history. Each day we'll feature a video that will honor each major war up through Memorial Day. The videos will be placed at the top center of our community site here on The Patriot Woodworker. We scour Youtube to find meaningful videos so that we may in some small way express our thanks, and honor those who have fallen. To those who have paid the ultimate price, we can never repay your sacrifice, but to only live as good and honorable as we can, and to give back to those veterans who are still fighting every day battles after the wars, under a moral obligation, we strive to give back, here, on The Patriot Woodworker. Meanwhile please consider giving back in a big way, please donate to Homes For Our Troops, help give back to those who have paid the price. Click on Homes For Our Troops to donate now.
