Memorial Day 2009

I’ve been thinking all day about what I wanted to say about Memorial Day.  But I think Matt at Blackfive said it best.

How do you serve men like Mat Schram, Jack Swan, Cooter, Jon Ayers or Rick Rescorla?

You honor them by being the best American that you can be, being the best parent, friend or spouse, being the best supporter of the “the soldier’s and sailor’s widow and orphan.”  We must never forget their families.

And there’s the quote in Sarah’s sidebar

While our troops go out to defend our country, it is incumbent upon us to make the country worth defending.

Freedom isn’t free.  It’s been paid for.  The ones that have paid the price for it won’t be cooking out or marching in parades.  I will be thinking of them tomorrow and what I can do…to honor them.

  1. Hey! Been doin’ a little redecorating, I see. I like it!

    That video is absolutely perfect. Says just what needs to be said and no more.

    Hope all is well.
