Beautiful post!  We do indeed remember all those who sacrificed their lives in service to our great country, and also the loved ones they left behind.  

In Flanders Fields

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.
We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved, and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.
Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

By Major John McCrae

Memorial Day is a day to thank our fallen heroes! Freedom is not free! Thank you! 

I penned a letter to a local restaurant where Veterans and Active duty military receive discounts on meals today.  As a Veteran Marine who served in Vietnam, I do not view myself as a hero, and I know I speak for all other Vietnam Veterans who God saved from the ravages of war, in order to perhaps perform a special assignment for Him.  That the only hero's from Vietnam have their names etched in a granite wall in D.C.  I reminded the restaurant owners that there is a day set aside to honor Veterans and Active Duty personnel, it's called appropriately "Veteran's Day".  Today is "Memorial Day", today is set aside to remember the fallen from all battlefields throughout America's rather short history, yet that number's in the hundred's of thousands brave men and women, the true hero's.  America's true hero's.  

  Today's meal discounts should be reserved for "Gold Star" families, whose loved ones did give the ultimate sacrifice for this Republic's freedom.  Veteran's do not want to be called hero's, a simple thank you is more than sufficient, we don't want to infringe on the honor and esteem set aside for this another Memorial Day.  Ask any Vietnam Vet, and he or she will confirm and attest to what I have just written.  There are too many War widows, widowers, moms, dads, brothers and sisters that are left with only memories of their true hero's. America's true hero's.  And it's those survivor relatives that should be receiving today's accolades, posthumously yet honorably and humbly given. 

Thanks and God Bless

Jerome,  USMC  Vietnam 67, 68 and 69.

Thank you Jerome, and may God bless you, your family, and all your sisters and brothers in service, and their families as well!  Semper fi, my friend!

"Veteran's do not want to be called hero's, a simple thank you is more than sufficient..."

I Agree. RVN Oct 70-Oct71 An Khe, Hue.

Welcome Home my brother.  Chu Lai was my base camp. Although I was all over that country.  From Khe Sanh during the siege, to DaNang, Hue, Vandergriff combat base and Rock Pile.  I'm sure we ate a lot of the same dirt.  My brother was there at the same time, he was Air Force down in Pleiku Air Base.  He died 3 years ago from Mantel Cell Lymphoma Cancer (top of the Agent Orange list).  All gave some, some gave all.  Let's make sure America never forgets.

Semper Fi

Thank you, JB and God Bless you! 

Thank you, Jerome and God Bless you!

I'd love to see pics of you guys in uniform from back then. I love seeing those pictures. I'm going to post one of my Dad from the Marines. He was WW11

Semper Fi, Marine!

This is my Dad... USMC WW11
