    O thus be it ever when freemen shall stand

    Between their lov’d home and the war’s desolation!

    Blest with vict’ry and peace may the heav’n rescued land

    Praise the power that hath made and preserv’d us a nation!

    Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,

    And this be our motto – “In God is our trust,”

    We should also remember the ones who lived the life of service to all.

    If he wants to thank the Veterans he should be there on Veteran’s Day. Memorial Day is the day to decorate the graves of our loved ones who have passed on before us, ALL loved ones, Parents, Grandparents, Aunts, Uncles, cousins, sigblings, and sadly children and spouses. Veteran’s Day in November 11th…

    In Canada we celebrate Rememberance Day (Nov. 11th). A day to remember all veterans who fought and especially those who made the ultimate sacrifice. To my American cousins today I say thanks to all the brave men and women who gave so we ccan live in freedom.

    Memorial Day is a day of conflicting emotions for me. I feel great sadness for the loss of lives. I also feel great anger toward those who caused the wars.

    We owe so much to those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedoms. Those who lost their service member also sacrificed, let us not forget them.

    Today is a somber day in most part for me. I recall what Omar Bradley said:

    “We’ve learned how to destroy, but not to create; how to waste, but not to build; how to kill men, but not how to save them; how to die, but seldom how to live.”

    Omar Nelson Bradley (General of the Army, the last of nine to ever hold the rank.)

    If you notice a penny on a gravestone, this signifies that a person has visited the headstone. It’s an act of gratitude for the person’s service. Anyone can leave a penny, whether they are a family member, friend or fellow service person.

    If there is a nickel on the gravestone, this means that the visitor who left it went to boot camp with the person buried.

    Next, if you see a dime on their gravestone, that signifies that the visitor served with the deceased military member.

    Seeing a quarter has a particularly heavy association. If you notice a quarter, this signifies that a previous visitor was present when the soldier passed away.

    There’s nothing to be happy about on Memorial Day! People say happy Memorial Day. We should bow our head and bless those who have paid the ultimate price. RIP!

    I heard an announcer actually say “Happy Memorial Day”. Something seriously wrong there. Visit a place where the Brothers and Sister are in their final resting place. Be respectful. Teach your children to be respectful. If you know a warrior laid to rest, have a toast, leave a stone or a coin or a golf ball in their memory. Leave a tear. Reflect, then if you’re of a mind, have a BBQ in their honour; that, I don’t have a problem. They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.At the going down of the sun and in the morningWe will remember them.

    What about others that gave their lives for others? Police and firefighters on 9/11? Teachers at Columbine and Sandy Hook.

    Great message today Chip. Historical perspective for today: In 1868, Union General John Logan issued General Orders #11, the first Memorial Day Order. He said, “If other eyes grow dull and other hands slack, and other hearts cold in the solemn trust, ours shall keep it well as long as the light and warmth of life remains in us.Let us, then, at the time appointed, gather around their sacred remains and garland the passionless mounds above them with choicest flowers of springtime; let us raise above them the dear old flag they saved from dishonor; let us in this solemn presence renew our pledges to aid and assist those whom they have left among us as sacred charges upon the nation’s gratitude—the soldier’s and sailor’s widow and orphan.”

    Memorial Day (originally known as Decoration Day1) is a federal holiday in the United States for honoring and mourning the U.S. military personnel who died while serving in the United States Armed Forces.2 From 1868 to 1970, it was observed on May 30.3 Since 1970, it is observed on the last Monday of May.

    Memorial Day honors those who paid the ultimate price for freedom- their lives. Veteran’s Day honors those veterans who are still with us.

    I couldn’t agree more. “No Greater Love than this, than one who lays down his life for his friend.” Said by One with the highest pay grade possible. Thanks for all my Army buddies who gave up their lives (and of course our wounded) in theater and those that died from suicide afrer having gone through the atrocities of combat. I will never forget you and you are in my prayers everyday…..

    My family has been quite lucky to have men who served in all wars from the Revolution to Korea, none paid the ultimate price. However that doesn’t mean that death in war hasn’t touched us. The husband of a g g grandmother died at Vicksburg, a g g uncle in the Spanish American War in the Philippines, and two brothers of my uncle who died two weeks apart in Tunisia during WWII. Today, I honor all who have served and died for this country, likewise on Veterans’ Day any who have served.

    And, sadly some have to transition from what the meaning of the day is, to totally segueing into a quasi-argument about politics.
