Happy Memorial Day 2015 – Freedom Isn’t Free

Happy Memorial Day 2015
Let us always remember – in the words of Ronald Reagan – freedom isn’t free and America is the last stand on Earth.

A Time for Choosing speech Oct 27, 1964

This amazing photo was taken in 1918. It is a photo of 18,000 men preparing for war at Camp Dodge in Des Moines, Iowa…
A gift from our grandfathers:

If you haven’t seen this yet, I urge you to take the time to watch this moving video.
“I Fought for You”

By Josh Pies, Andrew Manzano and Dave Bode.

Memorial Day Tip: If you have not seen The Water Diviner yet I’d encourage you to check it out.
It is a beautiful story about a father and his three sons who served in World War I for Australia starring Russell Crowe.

The Raised Bones of Arlington National Cemetery

If you are able…

Save for them a place inside of you, and save one backward glance when you are leaving for the places they can no longer go.

Be not ashamed to say you loved them, though you may or may not have always. Take what they have left with their dying and keep it with your own.

And in that time when men decide and feel safe to call the war insane, take one moment to embrace those gentle heroes you left behind.

Major Michael O’Donnell,
Dak To, RVN, 1 January 1970

Thank you – to all who have served with this great nation.
Thank you – for your sacrifice.
May God Bless America.

UPDATE: Jennifer sent this in – Today she honors her father who gave the ultimate sacrifice in Vietnam.
