I agree today is very important for our military families.
My father & mother are buried at Arlington National Cementary.
I feel very honored that they served.
Remember to fly our red, white & blue today.

Yes, they are indeed. A time to remember and not to forget those currently serving. Living so close to Great Lakes Naval base, I'm very aware and very thankful!

Many thanks to all who have sacrificed so much. I would like to especially remember those who work in the "silent services" whose service is seldom even known of.

Thanks to everyone for your good thoughts. I made it through 21 years in the USAF, but am humbled by the many who made the ultimate sacrifice. I only gave up my time, they gave up everything. I especially remember my father today who served as part of the "greatest generation" in WW2 in the Marines and was at Pearl Harbor during the attack. Ironically I was there at the attack on the WTC on 9/11. Family tradition I guess. Thank you all who served and especially those who gave up their lives and God bless their families as they remember.

Default Happy Memorial Day and Thank You!


Today, I am remembering my nephew, Sgt. Jonathan Hartman, who was killed in Diwaniyah, Iraq on April 17, 2004...he was my sister's only son. He paid the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom and I am forever greatful! My Mom, Sister, and I are going to a Memorial Day service today, where Jonathan was buried.

Thank you to all who have served and are serving our Great Country! That seems like such a small thing to say!


Have a wonderful day!

We all give thanks to all our SERVICE MEN AND WOMEN who served, are serving and those that gave their lives to our GREAT COUNTRY.

Having served 24 years in the USAF I can relate to all the sacrifices we have given

I to would like to say thanks. Not only to the vets but to all of you for remembering. Freedom is indeed not free. It takes time, understanding, dedication, and lots of love for this country and it's people.


We went to a cook out last night, that was small and with just a few people, but we soon realized that we had five generations of soldiers. One who fought in the south pacific during WWII, one who fought in Korea, Two who fought during the first desert war and two young men who just completed helicopter training and are ready to serve their country. Of course my hubby who is still at it in Iraq as well as other places. It was easy for us to remember those before us, and those still at it. We live what is going on everyday.

Here at Fort Hood, there will be remembrances all day, in many ways. Our flags are flying high, tears will be shed, but our hearts are heavy with love.

This is one time where it involves every American citizen. All of us have Veterans in our hearts and minds.

So, all across this great land, and countries far away, I say thank you for being there for us.

God Bless America!!!!!!

Yes, all of us should give thanks today. Last night on 60 Minutes, Andy Rooney made the comment that those men didn't give their lives, their lives were taken from them. Let that not be without good cause,

Good Afternoon,
Indeed, Happy Memorial Day! Today is my brother's and the late JFK's birthday.
Our church service yesterday was very respectful and the father of the teenaged trumpet player who offered his services was in the congregation. He's been home from a Iraq on a brief visit before heading back for 8 months. He helps train the Iraqi policemen. His presence brought the signifcance of the war close to home.

Those of us who have veterans in our families really appreciate this day and tribute. And, I have two sons who are veterans, one of whom was in the "silent service".

Take care, and let us always remember why we are FREE!!
Lynne
