    Exclamation Memorial Day Weekend-USA

    Thank you to all of those who fought and died for our freedom, and for the families left behind who also paid a price, and for all who served knowing that they, too, may have to pay the ultimate sacrifice. All gave some, some gave all.

    Artist:
    Billy Ray Cyrus
    Song:
    Some Gave All
    Album:
    Some Gave All


    I knew a man called him Sandy Kane
    Few folks even knew his name
    But a hero was he
    Left a boy, came back a man
    Still many just don't understand
    About the reasons we are free

    I can't forget the look in his eyes
    Or the tears he cries
    As he said these words to me

    All gave some and some gave all
    And some stood through for the red, white and blue
    And some had to fall
    And if you ever think of me
    Think of all your liberties and recall
    Some gave all

    Now Sandy Kane is no longer here
    But his words are oh so clear
    As they echo through out our land
    For all his friends who gave us all
    Who stood the ground and took the fall
    To help their fellow man

    Love your country and live with pride
    And don't forget those who died America can't you see

    All gave some and some gave all
    And some stood through for the red, white and blue
    And some had to fall
    And if you ever think of me
    Think of all your liberties and recall
    Some gave all

    And if you ever think of me
    Think of all your liberties and recall, yes recall
    Some gave all

    Some gave all

    I am deeply appreciative of all of the men and women who have fought and died for our country and our freedom. They are true heros and deserve to be remembered on Memorial Day. This is a special day to me.
    Thoughts and prayers for the people of Paris and all of France!

    ‘Unknown’ soldier is identified at last

    Quotes from Article:

    Tears glisten in Debbie Morgan’s eyes as she reads a newly found 147-year-old letter penned by an ancestor who lies under an “unknown” marker on the manicured slopes of Marietta National Cemetery, one of 10,312 Union soldiers who came to Georgia in 1864 and never went home.
    Quinlin feels an obligation to try to identify those at Marietta as a way of honoring all Americans on Memorial Day.
    “I’m doing what I feel is owed to these young men who saved the country,” says Quinlin, 56, who retired early on disability. “It’s my life’s work.”

    So far, Quinlin has identified 45 of the 3,048 unknowns. Noted historian David Evans, author of the acclaimed “Sherman’s Horsemen,” has identified four others.

    I still love this poem written in 1915. This poem is the reason why some veterans sell poppies for Memorial Day and Veteran's Day.

    IN FLANDERS FIELDS

    by Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae, MD

    In Flanders Fields the poppies blow
    Between the crosses row on row,
    That mark our place; and in the sky
    The larks, still bravely singing, fly
    Scarce heard amid the guns below.

    We are the Dead. Short days ago
    We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
    Loved and were loved, and now we lie
    In Flanders fields.

    Take up our quarrel with the foe:
    To you from failing hands we throw
    The torch; be yours to hold it high.
    If ye break faith with us who die
    We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
    In Flanders fields.


    December 8, 1915

    My daughter was chosen to read this poem today at our community Memorial Day service. I am so proud of her!
    In memory of those who gave their lives and are sacrificing this very moment to keep our freedoms secure, may God bless this country. Happy Memorial Day!

    Thank You to all of our veterans and active military. I was born on base and am always appreciative of the sacrifices of our warriors and their families. I wrote this this morning thinking of my Dad who has passed.


    Put the ball cap on the hook by the back screen door
    You won't be needing it anymore
    The glove, the bat and the softball too
    They go in the trunk at the end of your bed

    Take the old pickup out one last time
    Ride down the lane to the lakeside
    Smile at the memories of summers past
    Remember them, they'll always last

    Back at the house through the kitchen door
    Smells of fried chicken, a favorite of yours
    Friends/family gather around to eat
    Words murmered softly, sighs slow escape

    Dad stands up straight and stoic
    Your girl smiles faintly, wipes a tear from her eye
    Soon it's time to get on that rickety bus
    Mom and sis will try not to fuss

    A new place, standing on strange shores
    There's fear that cuts right to the core
    Struggle to go on, fight to the end
    You've got a job to do, you do it well

    Back at home it's a lazy summer day
    Mom watches two men walk up the path
    The letter flutters to the kitchen floor
    You won't be coming home anymore
