In Memoriam

This says it just about right…

 

It is the VETERAN, not the preacher, who has given us freedom of religion;
It is the VETERAN, not the reporter, who has given us freedom of the press;
It is the VETERAN, not the poet, who has given us freedom of speech;
It is the VETERAN, not the campus organizer, who has given us freedom to assemble;
It is the VETERAN, not the lawyer, who has given us the right to a fair trial; 
It is the VETERAN, not the politician, who has given us the right to vote;
It is the VETERAN
, who salutes the flag, who serves beneath the flag,
and whose coffin is draped by the flag.

~~Father Dennis Edward O’Brien, Lt. Colonel. USMC

From Pasadena, California we give thanks & salute those soldiers who served – and paid the ultimate sacrifice with their lives – for We The People of the USA: Fathers, Mothers, Sisters, Brothers, Cousins, Grandparents, Family Relatives, Friends, and those Unknown Soldiers to us. On this Memorial Day, at the very least, we should all remember them.

 

 

 

Gotta Honor & Salute. Stay Thirsty My Friends
