REMEMBER MEMORIAL DAY!

I would say “happy” Memorial Day, but somehow, wishing “happy” on a day when we remember good men who have died in battle just doesn’t sound right.

Please remember the good men that have fallen in battle marching with Geo. Washington across grassy fields or shot down while ambushing British patrols. Please remember the good men that marched with Andrew Jackson to defend New Orleans. Please remember the good men that helped keep Texas free and independent from Mexico. Please remember the good men that fell defending Vicksburg or fell marching across the field in Pickett’s Charge. Please remember the good men that fell at Little Big Horn. Please remember the good men that fell charging up San Juan Heights in Cuba. Please remember the good men that fell charging from trench to trench in the Great War of Europe. Please remember the good men that exited landing craft and even their lives on Iwo Jima and Normandy beaches in WW2. Please remember the good men that fought under General MacArthur against communism in Korea. Please remember the good men that died in the jungles and rice fields of Vietnam against communism. Please remember the good men that fought in the Iraq deserts and didn’t come home. Please remember the good men that fought in the Afghanistan mountains in search of Osama Bin Ladin and didn’t come home.

We can argue about the politics and morality of these wars and the competency of those running the show from Washington. But we should never have anything but respect for the men who fought in them and certainly those who didn’t make it back.

Something to ponder while enjoying loved ones over Bar B Q and Burgers in the backyard today.
