Memorial Day is for Remembering Those Who Sacraficed

At least once in your life, you've felt the call to duty. Some feel it in a charitable work. Some feel it in a political campaign they volunteer for. Some feel it in something as simple as giving out change to that poor man on the corner. However, there are some that feel the call to serve they're fellow man, and their nation to utmost of their ability. Those brave young souls join the armed forces, knowing full well that it will require great sacrifice of them. It will require them to go to places they do not like, and in places that do not like them. They know it will take them away from those whom love them, and from those whom they love. They know that they will give up those very things they are protecting, so that the rest of us may have them.

This, in the English language has a word that describes it: Noble.

On this Memorial Day, I ask you to remember those Americans that gave the ultimate sacrifice, in service to their nation, so that we may enjoy so many of the benefits and privileges that are bestowed upon us today. I invite you to follow this link to a presentation that was put together by someone with far more talent than I. Thanks to Mustang, please visit his site. You may not agree with his politics, but of this rest assured: He is a true patriot... one of the few left.

Semper Fi, and God Bless
