    I served in the Army for over 20 years. Veterans Day honors millions like me. Memorial Day honors those who sacrificed much more than any of us. Memorial Day is for those who died in military service to their country.

    These are the ultimate patriots. They deserve all of the honor and respect that we can give to them.

    Thanks for posting this. My son returned home two weeks ago and our military guys are still getting a respectful welcome when arriving at ATL airport.

    It wasn’t that way 38 years ago when a lot of other guys returned home, leaving a hurt that many still harbor today.

    We can disagree over the reason for being in a conflict, but’s let never lose our respect for those who continue to serve in harm’s way.

    I’m posting this for Ben Crystal.

    The dream that is the United States of America is a torch of liberty which has lit the world for 232 years. That torch has been held aloft, the dream kept alive, by the many men and women of our armed forces, so many of whom have made the ultimate sacrifice so that we might all bask in liberty’s glow. No matter our differences, we are united in our debt to they who have laid down their lives in defense of this land and this liberty. Even the most ardent critic of this great nation of ours must admit that their very right to offer such criticism is guaranteed by those for whom this and every Memorial Day is offered as tribute. Would that every day in America could be a Memorial Day for these many heroes.

    On this Memorial Day, let us cast aside our differences and pay respects to those who have made the ultimate sacrifice that we might live on in these United States. For it is because of those whom we honor today that this is truly the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave.

    God Bless us for their honor, and the privilege they have bestowed upon us.

    Happy Memorial Day to all PeachPundits and your loved ones.

    On behalf of my father, Father-in-law, uncle, brother-in-law, and nephew, thanks for your service and thanks for all of the other people in this country that have stood up to protect our life and liberty.
