Default Lest we forget

In honor and remembrance of those who gave all.

Have a memorable Memorial Day weekend and please: Remember those that gave the ultimate sacrifice.

All gave some, some gave all. Despite wishing I could unsee many things, there are those I wish I could still see.

Thanks, Dinny

Freedom isnt free!

Im thankful every day and conscious of the costs my brothers and sisters have paid and are paying, so we all can enjoy what we have today.

I just now replaced the flag on the front of my house along with a lil prayer.

Thank you to everyone here, who served and who is serving this great nation.

To those we have lost, Ill see you all again one day.

Drive-in Movies are about a thing of the past,but I'm the projectionist at one of three we still have in Oregon. Actually,we're not open to the public but are an RV park and show for guests only.The park was a drive-in theater at one time, and since the screen was still up, they decided to go with the theme. Normally we don't show movies on Monday, but I will this Memorial day.

I need to check our Library to find a good one.I'm sure I can find a good John Wayne or Eastwood one for the occasion.
I think we also have Saving Private Ryan.

On May 30, 1868, a crowd of 5,000 gathered at Arlington National Cemetery for the first Decoration Day exercises. Before strewing flowers upon the graves of the dead, the crowd listened to an address by James A. Garfield (1831Ė81), then an Ohio congressman who had also served as a major general in the Civil War. In this first of such annual addresses at Arlington National Cemetery, Garfield, who in 1881 would become the 20th president of the United States, sets a standard by explaining what Decoration Day is all about and why it should be commemorated. Later Decoration Day was changed to Memorial Day.

I don't think of myself as a staunch Republican or Democrat.
I am a Christian and a Conservative...........In that order!

All three of our sons are veterans, with our youngest (now 35) being a three tour combat SSGT with the 82nd Airborne.
I also have uncles, and cousins who served in peace time and in war.
While I spent 21 years in LE, I know that without our military none of us would have the lives we have today, or tomorrow.

Let us offer a Prayer of Thanks to our Vets that gave it All and remember those who are still serving our Great Nation. As one Vet to all the others ''Thanks You for Your Service.'' Take care, John.

It's not what you do, but how you do what you do, that counts.
Just keep on keeping on!

Aye. Those guys that never came back are the real heroes. 💜

Ammunition is like firewood. The more you have, the warmer you feel.

Brothers all. Unfortunately, the pain of their loss will die with our generation. But until then...
