Memorial Day – Remembering All Who Have Sacraficed For Our Freedom

As we head into the last weekend of May and make plans for the three-day weekend, I ask that you take a moment to remember what this weekend is truly about – remembering. The root of Memorial is memory and on this day, remembering something special about the soldiers, their families along with their loved ones and the sacrifices they continue to make to keep this country great. 
This weekend is also about the remembrance of our fallen heroes from all of the past conflicts and wars. It is a day to think about the families that will forever grieve for their lost loved ones but also a day to be thankful to those who have served and made the world a safer place not just for us, but also for our children and future generations.

From the Civil War to Vietnam, from Kuwait to Iraq, the men and women in uniform have protected our country throughout the generations for peace and freedom.

I ask that you honor these extraordinary Americans for their service and dedication and observe a moment or two of silence, fly a U.S. flag, watch a parade and if you get a chance, thank a soldier.

These men and women deserve our ongoing gratitude and prayers for protection. May God bless you and watch over our soldiers for their selfless acts, as they stand watch and protect this great country.

Have an outstanding weekend!

    BUILDING YOUR OWN CASTLE/PALACE ON SOMEONE’S GRAVE IS WHAT YOU ARE CALLING SACRIFICE FOR FREEDOM
    NO
    THIS IS TOTAL SELFISHNESS

    DESTROYING YOUR EXTRA WHEAT/RICE ETC ETC IN OCEANS AND NOT CONSIDERING THOSE HUMAN BEINGS WHO ARE DYING BECUAE OF THE SHORTAGE OF FOOD?????????????

    TAKING CARE OF ANIMALS AS SHOWN IN ANIMAL PLANET TV CHANNEL AND NOT THINKING ABOUT THE HUMAN BEINGS WHO ARE IN WORST CONDITION THAN THOSE ANIMALS

    TALKING AND TALKING ABOUT HUMAN RIGHTS AND KILLING THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS INNOCENT PEOPLE ALL OVER THE WORLD TO KEEP YOUR SUPERMACY

    IMPOSING BANS ON SMALL NUCLEAR COUNTIRS AND SELLING NUCLEAR WEAPONS IN THE OPEN WORLD MARKET A COMPLETE CONTRADICTION IN YOUR STATEMENT AND WHAT YOU DO.

    DEPLOYING YOUR ARMY IN OTHER PARTS OF THE WORLD TO CONTROL TERRORISM AND KILLING INNOCNET PEOPLE ,KIDS
    AND SENIOR CITIZEN FOR NOTHING.

    DOING WHAT JEWS TELL YOU TO DO BECAUSE THEY CONTROL YOUR ECONOMY YOUR POLITICS YOUR COUNTRY YOUR PEOPLE

    A COMPLETE BOOK SHOULD BE WRITTEN ON WHAT YOUR COUTRY AND YOUR POLITICIANS AND ARMY ID DOING AND ONE DAY YOU ALL WILL FACE WHAT YOU ARE DOING TO OTHERS AMIN

    I am sad seeing all the hoopla and war propaganda movies, documentaries and articles that the United States focused on over this past Memorial weekend. Yes, I agree we must never forget. I agree too, that we must with our whole hearts honor the men and women who are fighting and / or dying for causes regardless of race, creed, color, nationality. Why is it however, we cannot show those who are engaged in conflicts working towards peace? Why can we not show the soldiers who help in building infrastructure…giving comfort to the wounded on both sides, assisting in hospitals…building schools? All day long yesterday and over much of the weekend we are shown the horrors of killing in a glorified manner in order to ‘stir” us to sentimentality that helps no one. I do not know what your web site can do to bring about changes, but for myself I’ll continue to pray to God believing change will come.

    THANK GOD FOR THEM…

    I think that no matter who you are or where your from (im Canadian) you should always honor the lives lost in conflict and tragedy. We all lose people we know at some point in our lives so why should someone we don know be any different.

    Thank you so much for this it is such a tribute to our loved ones who have fought and died for us. I especially loved the pictures and the song which was sung by one of my best artist, Trace Adlins. I was in service during the Viet Nam war and although I didn’t have to go there I volunteered but was turned down due to a service connected disability. I had many, many friends who died there. I appreciate all they did for us and still have trouble with my emotions for the way my fellow citizens treated the returning vets of Viet Nam. I also had my son who fought in the first Desert Storm and thank God for his return safely. Again thanks for the video and letter. Sincerely, Homer Vaughan

    Thank you for sending me this video. Truly we should remember our soldiers who risked their lives fighting the enemies for our country and that they must also be respected. My husband served the Philippine army for 38 years and it’s no joke. I praise the Lord for keeping my husband’s life in those years of his service. Finally, he had just retired from the army in October, 2009 at age 56 based on their protocol. I was also glad that after his retirement, we now live together in one home. We were married for 27years and most of his work assignments were not in our own hometown. He only came to visit me and the kids every quarter of a year for 10days.At last this time he will never be away from us anymore and we enjoyed his company. I want to thank God for His great faithfulness to my family…. And to America, HAVE A WONDERFUL MEMORIAL DAY!!!

    We all know freedom is not free. We should honor and pray for ALL those fighting and giving their lives for what they believe in and hold dear.
    What we can not forget is that Jesus made the ultimate sacrifice so we might “graduate to heaven” and that always – GOD IS IN CONTROL!
    World peace should be a daily prayer.
    Thanks for allowing me to post a response.

    SORRY ABOUT ALL THE NEGATIVE COMMENTS PEOPLE EXPRESS, GUESS IT TAKES ALL KINDS TO MAKE THE WORLD. HAVE HEARD THE SONG SEVERAL TIMES B4 BUT NOT THE NICE VIDEO. IT IS TO BAD SOME PEOPLE DO NOT REALLY UNDERSTAND MEMORIAL DAY.

    To Baber:

    As a Canadian, I am proud of Canadian and American Forces who sacrifice and have sacrificed their lives, the greatest sacrifice – that a man would give his life for another human, rather than for however many virgins he will have in the afterlife for deliberately killing defenceless civilians. Their GIFT of LIFE has more noble and spiritual connotations than the carnal and sexual promised in your faith. Karl Marx’s statement truly applies to the Radical/Fanatical Islamic Groups —” Religion is the opium of the people”

    The Americans are always the FIRST to send Aid to disaster-stricken countires e.g after the Tsunami, or Haiti. I have never heard of Wealthy Oil Rich Arabic Countries doing so. OR Islamic Fundamentalist Groups helping others.

    The Arabic Nations cannot even safeguard the lives of People in their own countries from other Arabs e.g Pakistan and the TRUE MASSACRES that have happened there on defenseless and praying people in 2 Mosques.

    Israel is a courageous nation of People totally surrounded by enemies. No matter what the rhetoric of the international Community may be, they stand strong in the face of adversity and I would hope that other countries will support them. They also are open in the face of the International Community which cannot be said for the Stealthy, Cunning Tactics and Strategies of El-Qaida, Hamas, Hezbollah and other terrorist groups. And that is what they are—terrorist groups.

    It is fortunate for you that you are in the United States and making these comments for you are obviously still alive – in your ancestors’ homeland, such comments would bring death to an “infidel”. And you are an infidel in North America.

    On the other hand, if you are not in the United States, that country does not need you. Stay where others think the same way you do.

  12. A very good video regarding dedication to the brave soldiers who sacrificed their lives so that we may live.
    May they all be with our Lord.

    I am a 25 year vetern, thank you. The late part was not important, the important part was you remember. For that alone I would do it all over again. God bless those who could not be with us on this day.

  14. Beautiful video tribute to our fallen troops. We must continue to honor and support our living veterans ..and our young men and women protecting our freedom in Afghanistan, Iraq and other far off places.
    Here, we give on-going support to our troops from Central Pennsylvania. Check us out at CentralPennsylvaniaSupportsTheTroops.com.
    God Bless them ALL.
