    today is the day to remember
    the ones who gave there all
    the ones who came home to us
    and the ones who had to fall
    the places these proud people have been
    the names of we don't know how to say
    this is the time to thank them
    on this Memorial day
    fathers..brothers..husbands and friends
    all have given their life
    fighting in other countries
    torn apart by inner strife
    i say to you my friends
    that one day will never do
    let us show every day,
    let our true feelings shine through
    and to those that are serving now
    and maybe feeling alone
    my flag will be soaring
    when you finally make it home

    God bless our vets and our servicemen and women protecting us today

    I will always have a soft spot in my heart for a GROUND POUNDING GRUNT, these guys show up suit up and TCOB. When you are a solider you don't have to like it you just have to do it regardless of political or media opinion. Back in the late 60's I got spit on by people that are now politicians and news types but you just huck your ruck and drive on.

    William and all the other vets out there, I want to thank you all. Your answer to duty back then has helped to pave the way for troops like us today. I would also like to thank both of my grandfathers for their service (one at Iwo Jima and one in Korea). I would like to thank three of my uncles (two in Vietnam and one in Desert Storm). Semper Fidelis.
