  2. "...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." -- Gettysburg Address

    1. A Patti,
      The first photo is one taken by my corpsman grandson on his first deployment. He was there, he has stayed in touch with the families, the families that only have memories.
      May we never forget.

  5. Thank you, Brig, for your touching remembrance. This day, like July 4 and Veterans Day, is more important than ever. I hope many people were moved to remember: some way, somehow.

    1. Linda,
      I don't mind people enjoying the long weekend, I do mind when they don't bother to tell their children & grandchildren what it is for.
