    The world will little note nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living rather to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us--that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion--that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain...


    To the CU veterans and retirees...I want to say thank you. While it seems like the currently serving soldiers who get the thanks...the truth of the matter is that if you hadn't stepped up and served when you did...we wouldn't be here doing it now.

    Thank you.

    Today for me personally I want to remember both of my grandfathers...Master Sergeants in the U.S. Army Air Corps in War Two.

    And I remember my good friend SSG Adam Dickmyer, Guard of Honor Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. badge #528 KIA 28 Oct. 2010 Kandahar Province Afghanistan.

    The libs/dems of today are the Quislings of former years. The cowards who would vote a fraud into office in exchange for handouts from the devil.

    My father was a staff sergeant in the British Army during WW2. He didn't like talking about it that much.

    I have not had the honour to serve. It's a cause of major regret to me. If I still could, I would, but it's too late now.

    We owe that generation a lot. And this one, too.

    Thank you for your service.

    great read, sadly, fewer and fewer people know how to play the bugle, let alone Taps and they have to resort to canned versions played at services

    Serving was one of my greatest honors. Great thanks to those that came before me and those that followed. To those that made the ultimate sacrifice, we hold you in our hearts each and every day.

    God bless all those who have served, past and present.
    I will never forget those who didn't make it back home.

    A BLESSED Memorial Day, a SOMBER Memorial Day, indeed, but this isn’t a day for BBQ and beer, not for me, it’s not a day for parties and cheer, it’s more than that, a lot more, and the utter ignorance of some Americans astounds me…

    Why do so many confuse Memorial Day with Veterans Day?

    Memorial Day is to honor the dead, our WAR dead, Veterans Day is for ALL living Veterans, that’s the day for burgers and beer, and making sure that those who served, and lived to tell the tale KNOW that they are loved and appreciated…

    For those that gave their ALL, this is THEIR day, and I honor THEM and the ultimate sacrifice THEY made!
