Thank you all, and to those that are here with us may you have peace and contentment for the rest of your lives. My you enjoy family and friends.
To the families of those that did not come back, my you have serenity and inner calm knowing that your loved one gave their life for all of us to live free.
To those that came back with disabilities we can never repay you but know that we honor you from the bottom of our hears and will be indebted to you for the rest of our lives.
I want to add my thanks to all active duty military and veterans! Many families have suffered great loses in defense of our nation.
While I was classed as a disabled vet when retired from the AF, my aflictions are very minor when compared to many. I am truly appreciative of those that have given so much! Thanks!
To all active military personnel and veterans...THANK YOU!! for putting it all on the line every day for all of us to keep this great country free. Not only on this, your day, but every day we will not forget!
...express sufficient gratitude. Thank you so much.
To those who served, and those serving - Thank you.
We cannot forget all the sacrifices our men and women in the service of our country have given and are giving so that we may enjoy freedom. And for the men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice we will always owe a permanent debt of gratitude. We also cannot forget the sacrifices their families have made and are making on a daily basis. Thank God we still have our freedom because of them!
I can't thank you enough for your courage in defending our country and keeping us free.Thank you to the Vets that have passed and those that are still with us, God Bless You.
To all vets, current, passed and present, Thank You and God Bless you.
Seeing families getting together on any day of the year is a positive, but it is important to keep in mind the meaning and history behind this day. This is a good opportunity to pass along a few tidbits to the younger generation to emphasize the background of Memorial Day.
Happy Veterans day!!
Hats off to all
"Happy Veterans Day"??
Not there yet.
Without your service and sacrifices, we would not be living in the Great Country and have the freedoms afforded to us. Thank you very much!
One day set aside to honor those who paid the supreme sacrifice to defend our country.
As a retired career military, I personally honor my fallen comrades every day of my life.
They are sadly missed,remembered still, and remain in my daily prayers.
Safe and pleasant week ahead to all!
FYI: Veterans day in Nov is to honor all who served
Memorial Day in May is to honor those who perished.
Wasn't watching what posted . I know the difference
I am a Vietnam era vet. Wish I could get a discount on GAS ! And find a job !
May GOD bless and keep safe all our armed forces weather Vets or active and all of their familiea and loved ones.
Not just today, but always!
The "official" Memorial Day is the last Monday in May. It was originally called Decoration Day (honoring Union soldiers who died in the Civil War).
The "official" Veterans Day is November 11th. It was originally called Armistace Day (World War I hostilities ended on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918 with the German signing of the Armistice")
Over the years various citizens have worked to extend the definitions to include members of all services in all wars.
I sing with another fellow at Assisted Livings, Nursing homes and Alzheimers Facilities. The next to the last song we sing is almost always "God Bless America". We tell our audience that "today" (whatever day that might be) ought to be "Veterns Day" and "Memorial Day" because our many blessing can be directly attributed to the lives of those who have protected them over the years.
We have a drape over out musuc stand with these words: "Freedon is not free - a vet paid for it".
It saddens me that "God Bless America" is not an integral part of early school education like it was when I was growing up - but a few people have objected to the "God Bless" part as a violation of the separation of church and state.
I hope that each of us will consider every day as both Veterans Day and Memorial Day and help keep alive the flame honoring those who have given their all - defending our freedoms.
And God Bless all the vets past present and future who gave so we can say; God Bless America the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave.
To all of my brothers and sisters in arms, may this Memorial Day be a special time of remembrance of those you and I knew who gave the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom.
There are a lot of vets out there from many differnt times.. Like me.. I did both, Peace time and war time and would not change a thing. i am very proud what i did and every one else in any brance of service is too also.
Thanks to all that appreceate what the guys and gals do for our great USA. Even tho I did serve and am retired, i still feel ANY one that served in only peace time or war is a great person. When one signs up, no one really knows when the S%$t will hit the fan, and we have to be ready and willing to do what ever it takes to give the libery and freedom for the USA..
Just wanted to sound off..
Oh, one mre thing, and is very important in my eyes, If you know anyone over seas, or just can write to a service person OVERseas, do it.. They feel so away from averone and everything from the states, its just nice to know someone cares... no matter who it it! SO WRITE TO A SERVICE MAN!!!
Thanks for reading..
Just wanted to add my thanks to those that have served, earning and preserving our freedoms and too those that are serving to assure us that they remain!
Thank you and God Bless!
