    Thanks you all of you who willing to lay down your life for me. You have paid a debt, that you did not owe. There are some who don't appreciate what you have done. Those from the founding days of our country to WWII, to Vietnam until today. I say thank you, from the bottom of my heart. And also to all of you who are here are the forum and serve and continue to serve. And the families of those who serve, as well. And to the graduating class of 2012, whether from an SA or ROTC, again thanks to each and everyone.

    God Bless the United States of America

    God Bless and God Speed to you all,

    RGK

    Thank you Bruno for initiating the Memorial Day salute.
    Every year I come here to remember with all of you. Separated by time
    distance and age we all remember, as it should be. I read all of your memorial day posts, cause I feel the same as all of you.

    So here is the link I want you all to watch, thank you for your service.

    To All Whoever wore the Uniform Of The United States
    Rest In Peace and Honored Glory

    Memorial Day

    tpg,

    Exactly my sentiments...this solemn day isn't about BBQs, shopping sales, or going to the beach. It is a time to honor those who came before us and sacrificed, protecting the freedoms we enjoy today.

    May God always bless those servicemembers and their families for the sacrifices they made, ensuring that the USA remains "the land of the free and home of the brave."
