A Memorial Day Reflection: Thank You Grandpa
It's a time to reflect, first and foremost.
A prayer for your grandparents and tell your dad and niece thanks from me.

I lonely hope those coming here now to reap the rewards of others deaths and labours realize what a sacrifice American families made to make this country so attractive to them.

I grew up on Army bases, but never served. I appreciate the ultimate sacrifice your Grandfather made for our country. Obviously this is a much more important holiday to your and yours than someone like me.
I’ll try to pass this on to my kids this weekend.

And finally to my husband ... thanx for keeping your head down in Korea, honey. That's hard for him to do being 6'7" ;-)

Put some flowers there. Or just pause and say a prayer. Nothing elaborate. "Thanks" will do.
Or just stop and think about what it means; what it really means to give your life, in its prime, for your country. Look at that name there on the stone. Think what might have been... and what was.
Some of these men and women were in uniform by choice. Some because they had no choice. Some were heroes. Some were not.
But they were there where all hell was breaking loose. They probably had no idea they were giving "the last full measure of devotion." They just had some instant, desperate job to do. In a cockpit or a turret or a hole in the ground.
Did they grasp the "policy implications" of their presence on the high seas, in the air or on some foreign soil? Did they have time for a curse or a prayer when they saw the muzzle flashes or heard that rushing sound, or when the bomb sent the Humvee into the air?
Go and find a soldier's grave."

All you liberals and leftists out there who constantly berate us, the blood of our fathers, grandfathers, great grandfathers, uncles, and other ancestors shout from the grave for us to stop you, so that their blood would not have been spilt in vain. And so I shall. Or die trying.

"What those men did at Normandy makes what we do in Iraq pale by comparison. The incredible courage, determination and discipline under fire required to take Omaha Beach or ascend Pointe de Hoc is unimaginable." This from a veteran of over 100 firefights.
God has already blessed every man and woman who defended or defends our freedom. Meager though it is, I add my gratitude and blessing to them all.
