Lest we forget ...
« on: May 28, 2017, 06:44:42 AM »
... that the real reason for our American Memorial Day celebration isn't hot dogs and parades.  Let's all spend one full minute remembering and thanking our brothers and sisters who sacrificed themselves for the continuance of the American way of life.  With all our flaws and warts, America is still the best nation on God's green earth.

All about Remembrance...  maybe they ought to change the name back????  It's a sacrifice that cannot be outdone.

God Bless them all!

Any holiday, everyday.....even today, Cinco da Mayo.  Our brethren that gave it all should be prayed for. They provide these great freedoms we enjoy.

As an old Fart of the Nam era, there are just too many to name

Suffice it to say that we all have many to thank and bow our heads and take a knee to, in remembrance for the freedoms we seem to take for granted in todays PC driven world....

As the title suggests, "Lest we forget", nor should we forget the one ultimate sacrifice made by one greater then us all...
