    Be safe and remember all who have served and all that are serving now.
    They were and are a big reason we can enjoy our rights that we have.
    Freedom is not free. And we all owe those that have sacrificed to help keep us free.
    Thank You ALL.
    Dave

    All you Marines, you need a little Hooah in your diet. :P

    Happy Memorial Day guys, I plan on celebrating with a couple of cool ones. The rest are being poured out for my fallen buddies.

    Time once again to remember.

    ALAN DENNIS CURTIS was born on July 13, 1948 and joined the Armed Forces while in
    Woonsocket, RI.

    In 1 year of service in the Air Force he attained the rank of A1C/E3.

    On December 6, 1969, at the age of 21, ALAN DENNIS CURTIS perished in the service of
    our country in Phu Cat, Binh Dinh province, Republic of Vietnam.

    You can find ALAN DENNIS CURTIS honored on the Vietnam Veterans Memorial on Panel
    15W, Row 31.
    ________

    Curtis was one of the kids under me who did not see his mum again. He died from a
    single shot in the night.
    ________

    Curtis, I remember you and salute you. You were so young. You were kind. You tried. You
    did your best. One cannot ask for more...

    Peace.

    Decoration Day (now Memorial Day) came about following the Civil War... I am always reminded of my last name when Memorial Day comes about. Why? My last name is now Smith, however, it should be Storrs.

    A young relative was too young to fight in the Union Army, he was turned away. He went home, but undeterred he came back the next day with a different last name and lied about his age. He was enlisted in the Union Army that day. He was killed at Gettysburg....

    Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent a new nation, conceived in liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.
    Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation, so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battle-field of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.

    But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate, we can not consecrate, we can not hallow this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us—that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion—that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain—that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom—and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.
    Live Free or Die!

    Veteran –



    Anyone that served this country, during conflict or peace, on Active Duty, Reserve or National Guard, wrote a blank check to the people of the United States of America for the sum of, “up to and including my life”


    Semper Fi to all my Brothers, some are gone, but Not forgotten. To anyone willing to walk in harm’s way on my behalf, “ Thank You “

    Ishould look around more than I already did to see if there was a Memorial Day thread.

    God Bless America.America will never forgetthose who have given their lives, bodies and minds for America.

    I don't mind watching the OC-Community (tea party 2.0's, who have hijacked the OC-Community) cannibalize itself. I do mind watching OC dragged through the gutter. OC is an exercise of A Right. I choose to not OC; I choose to not own firearms. I choose to leave the OC-Community to it's own self-inflicted injuries, and eventual implosion. Carry on...
