On Memorial day we honor all those who gave their lives for our great country. Even though I did not serve, it is a time I & we should recall the times and circumstances which made it necessary for many to answer the call to duty.
As we recall the past, especially as we remember OUR loved ones, we do the next thing; we give thanks. Surely we can not convey our thanks to the dead, but we can to those still alive. Above all I hope you will all join me in thanking God for all His blessings & for giving our country dedicated & might I say brave men & women who offer & offered military service to protect our freedoms.
Have A happy & blessed Memorial day.

I honor and respect every person who has served under our flag in our military, whether in wartime or peacetime.  That said, I reserve the right to judge the motives of government officials who send our military into harm's way. Yes, I served during wartime and I'm proud of my service to my nation.

No measure of gratitude can be expressed to our military for all they have to do. It's a debt greater than the country's debt as we speak.  To the Army, Air Force, Coast Guard & Merchant Marines I thank you.  To my brother Squids (Navy) and Leathernecks (Marines) I say Anchors Aweigh & Semper Fi.

I've said before here, that Washington DC is a favorite vacation place for our family.  We started every trip with a visit to Arlington.  Most of the time, we then went to the National Archives to see the Constitution and the Declaration.  After the first trip, the kids started asking us to do those two first.

All who serve / have served are Great Americans, and we thank them.

My daughter was just telling me yesterday how one of her good friends' dad is on Seal Team 6.  Her friend was telling her how hard it is on them as a family, because they never know when he leaves the house if/when he'll be back.  Sometimes he walks out to go get milk or something, and doesn't come home for 3 months.  So, besides the worry of deployment, they are frightened every time he walks out the door when he's home.  Graduation is in a week, and her friend doesn't know if his dad will be there or not.

Besides the ultimate, our military men, women, and families make sacrifices like these every day.  God Bless them all.

Let me be clear in a Memorial Day thread in honor of dead fighting men and women who gave their lives for their country.

In a new poll I saw today, 62% of those polled want American ground forces to be deployed to stop ISIS. On record, I am in no way interested in American forces to be redeployed to refight for what we had already secured. No no no no no no no to bailing out Obama and his failed pullout of Iraq. Diane Einstein and bill O'Reilly sound like they want troops deployed. We don't need to send troops to fight under this CIC errrrr community organizer.

Yes powerful, yes thought provoking, yes a shame.  Was it a waste?  Not for them but some are so quick to have their burgers and hot dogs today and not give a 2nd thought for what this days means.
 Thanks for posting FIB

Thank you to all who served to protect and defend our freedoms.  And to those who gave the ultimate sacrifice.  We would not be the GREAT country we are today without you.

A touching story - what an amazing man.  I think very few of us would have the strength and courage to face life as he did.  Thank you for your service and RIP.

“It is for us, the living, rather to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they have, thus far, so nobly carried on. 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 here gave the last full measure of devotion – that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain; that this nation shall have a new birth of freedom; and that this government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.”

Sadly, I'm one of only two in my neighborhood flying the flag all weekend.  But that's California for ya.

God Bless all the brave souls who laid down their lives for our freedoms.  That debt can never be repaid.

Hey buddy. Sorry those dropped in the middle of the love for your girl. My bad. Best wishes to that young lady.

I hesitate to tell you the name of that site, because you will be spending the next 3 or 4 days going thru their archives. One of my favorite sites...

Start with these three running bits, and the archives for these:

1-Fail Fridays-some are pics, some are videos, make sure to click to play those.
2-Rush Boobs
3-Ridiculous Tinder Pickup Lines

And many great short videos and frat stories. The site is:

Don't say I didn't warn you.

Edited***Don't miss any of the golf cart videos hehe

Thanks see you next weekend LOL. I only mentioned the kiddo because she understands what Memorial Day is. She's heard me talk about it enough and she feels a special tingle when she shares her BD with the Day itself.

We honor those who died for this great country we have. We have to keep honoring, keep remembering, we have to keep fighting those that would steal what we have gained.

Go read some of my new Texas news over on the Texas vs. California thread
