Remember Their Sacrifices

Today is Memorial Day, the day Americans give thanks and remembrance to those brave men and women who gave their lives for their country. Joining the armed forces is never an easy choice, especially when the commander-in-chief is a dullard who respects Iran and China more than his own country.

Thankfully, this holiday has nothing to do with politicians. It has everything to do with people like Nathan Hale, Civil War hero Alonzo H. Cushing, World War I legend Henry Johnson, WWII hero Lt. Eric Fisher Wood Jr, and Mogadishu Delta snipers Gary Gordon and Randy Shughart.

There are thousands more American heroes who deserve recognition. Great Americans who loved their country, and volunteered to fight communism, fascism, and Nazism. Remember those heroes today.

Andrew Cuomo Is A Jackass

New York Governor, murderer of nursing home residents, and credibly-accused sexual harasser Andrew Cuomo has decided New York will ignore our fallen military heroes, and instead celebrate essential COVID-19 workers on Memorial Day.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo drew scrutiny Monday after he called for the public to honor COVID-19 essential workers on Memorial Day, the federal holiday traditionally reserved for honoring fallen military servicemembers.

I still remember my grandfather telling me how doctors and nurses stormed St. Mihiel during WWI.

“It’s Memorial Day and we remember those who gave their lives on Memorial Day, gave their lives for this country or for freedom, because freedom isn’t free,” Cuomo said at a press conference. “I also think we should remember this past year on Memorial Day, remember the 42,000 New Yorkers who died. 42,000. Remember the 1,000 essential workers who died giving their life.”

Ironically, most of these people were killed by Andrew Cuomo and his nursing home directives.

Cuomo said that flags throughout the state would be flown at half-staff during Memorial Day Weekend in remembrance of essential workers who died during the coronavirus pandemic. State landmarks will be illuminated red, white and blue.

For someone who is occasionally deemed an “essential worker,” I think this is the stupidest idea Cuomo ever concocted. I’ve lost a few coworkers to the Chinese Wuhan Virus, and even they would think this is an idiotic idea. Memorial Day is for those brave men and women who gave the ultimate sacrifice to protect this country and its freedoms.

Remember The Fallen Heroes

Today is Memorial Day.

While everyone is hitting the beaches, enjoying the barbecues, and spending time with family locked inside their homes, please remember those men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom.

Today is not about white, sandy beaches. Today is not about cooking hot dogs and hamburgers. Today is about our men and women in uniform. If you see a member of the armed services today, make sure you thank them.

Thank you for your service, sacrifice, and true love for this, the greatest country on Earth. You will not be forgotten.

Also, check out Support Our Troops – Care Packages. It’s a terrific program where you can send care packages of books, non-perishable food, or anything else that a soldier could want.

Remember The Fallen

Today is Memorial Day, the day we honor those who gave the ultimate sacrifice for our country and the cause of freedom. While I could write some meaningless words from someone who never served, I’d rather highlight those of another man. Few people can say it better than President Reagan did at Arlington National Cemetery, on Memorial Day, 1986.

And we owe them something, those boys. We owe them first a promise: That just as they did not forget their missing comrades, neither, ever, will we. And there are other promises. We must always remember that peace is a fragile thing that needs constant vigilance. We owe them a promise to look at the world with a steady gaze and, perhaps, a resigned toughness, knowing that we have adversaries in the world and challenges and the only way to meet them and maintain the peace is by staying strong.

While you attend the parties, eat the burgers, and watch some sporting events, take a moment to remember those who died fighting for the greatest country on Earth. God bless them all.

Remember Their Sacrifice

Today is Memorial Day, a day where most Americans celebrate the official launch of summer.

Sadly, many Americans cannot celebrate with a barbecue or a trip to the shore, because they gave their lives keeping this country safe and secure. Please keep these heroes in your hearts today, and silently thank them for their sacrifice. Always remember freedom isn’t free

“One’s country is worth dying for, and democracy is worth dying for, because it’s the most deeply honorable form of government ever devised by man. All of you loved liberty. All of you were willing to fight tyranny, and you knew the people of your countries were behind you.”President Ronald Reagan, 1984.

We Remember The Fallen

Normandy American CemeteryThis weekend, millions of Americans are headed to the shore or the mountains, holding elaborate barbecues, and celebrating the unofficial start of summer.

Sadly, many others cannot celebrate the holiday, because they lost their lives in service to our country.

Today is Memorial Day, so please take a moment to remember those who gave their lives for this country and its ideals. Despite its issues, America is still the last, best hope for Earth.

Thank you all for your sacrifice. We owe you a debt we can never possibly repay.
