Happy Memorial Day



A great big thank you to our troops that are fighting for our freedom right now. I am also very thankful for those who have fought in the past, 
and especially those who laid their lives down.  (The ultimate sacrifice.)
 I also give honor to my Dad who served 20 years in the Air Force and my father in law
who served in the Army.


Memorial Day

 As we stand here looking
At the flags upon these graves
Know these flags represent
A few of the true American brave

They fought for their Country

As man has through all of time
Except that these soldiers lying here
Fought for your country and mine

As we all are gathered here

To pay them our respect
Let's pass this word to others
It's what they would expect

I'm sure that they would do it

If it were me or you
To show we did not die in vein
But for the red, white and blue.

Let's pass on to our children

And to those who never knew
What these soldiers died for
It's the least we can do

Let's not forget their families

Great pain they had to bear
Losing a son, father or husband
They need to know we still care

No matter which war was fought

On the day that they died
I stand here looking at these flags
Filled with American pride.

So as the bugler plays out Taps

With its sweet and eerie sound
Pray for these soldiers lying here
In this sacred, hallowed ground.

Take home with you a sense of pride

You were here Memorial Day.
Celebrating the way Americans should
On this solemnest of days.
