Memorial Day
« on: May 30, 2011, 10:21:31 AM »
Just hoping everyone is having a good holiday weekend (Americans, at least!). But let's not forget what it's about...

This song/video always makes me very sad, but very proud, for those that serve our country and protect us with their lives. Remember them.

Thanks for posting that, Blitzy.  Very moving.

My dad was a career Naval Officer, and though I was very little at the time, I still remember when he was in Vietnam. 

To all the military personnel here, you have my heartfelt thanks for all you do.

Speaking as a Disabled Vet, thank you.

Speaking to the boys and girls who followed after me and those before me: Thank you for serving, and please stay to the high grass and shadows and walk with care. Come home to us fit, hale and sound.

I have deep respect and appreciation for the sacrifices our military and their families and friends make on behalf of our nation and its citizens.  I've lost schoolmates, friends and a fiance but for each I've lost another has come home safe and sound to take up his/her life again.

On another note I saw this on "The View" episode I recorded.

Kaziah Hancock is a Utah artist who paints portraits of fallen US servicemen and women for their families.  She contacts those families and requests photographs and stories from the family member and even talks to them via phone calls to learn their stories.  She and several other artists have painted over 3000 portraits so far because they care.  The choice to have this done is left to family.
