Memorial Day

"Who kept the faith and fought the fight, The glory theirs, the duty ours."
On a holiday that seems to have become more known for beach vacations, parties, picnics, retail sales and so on, let us not forget the real meaning of the holiday.  
 Some chose, others had no choice they were drafted, but all were in some branch of the Armed forces.   They fought for the freedom and security the United States stands for today. God bless their souls.
No matter ones political beliefs, if one resides in the United States they enjoy this freedom.  In honor of the men and women who fought valiantly, sacrificing their lives....if each and everyone in this country could display a flag maybe then the real meaning of the holiday will live on.
Let us remember freedom isn't always free.
" It doesn't take a hero to order men into battle. It takes a hero to be one of those men who goes into battle."
