Memorial Day Thoughts

Please be sure to stop by BlackFive, Mudville Gazette, Michael Yon and this post in particular from Michelle Malkin for Memorial Day remembrances.

As for us, we recall those that have fallen in this war, and all those before now. For those who came before bought freedom with their most precious blood. Those who have fallen since continued that debt, and it is one that the people of this nation will never be able to repay.

Remember also those who are alive and fighting today, abroad. One day they will return home, but not until the job is done. Not until their mission, whatever it may be, is finished. Remember them for their courage. Remember them for their honor. Remember them for the sacrifices they have made, and pay for their families that are left behind.

It is not an easy job being a soldier. But it is an even tougher job being a soldier, a husband or wife, and a father or mother.

The last time I saw my brother was on my wedding day. I knew when he left he did not want to go, and I did not want him to go. But he understood his duty, as did I. I worry about him everyday. I can relate to the families that go through this, and I can understand their frustrations at times. It is not easy being a military family.

So we should remember them this one day out of the year. Forget the barbecues. Forget the fun and games. Take time out to not only think about who is fighting on our behalf, and protecting this great nation, but go to one of the remembrance services in your town if you can. Thank those soldiers -- young and old -- for serving this nation when she called upon them to take up the rifle.

God bless our soldiers. God bless our veterans. And God rest the souls of the departed.
