Remember Freedom Day 2019 is on Wednesday, September 11, 2019: Why should we NOT remember on rememberance day (nov.11)?
Wednesday, September 11, 2019 is Remember Freedom Day 2019. It's Tax Freedom Day! - Halt The Assault Tax-Freedom-Day
There is not ONE reason to NOT remember. Too many men and women have fought, been wounded, been maimed and died to protect the freedom of people they didn't even know.
That is ONE BIG reason to REMEMBER.
My father lost an arm fighting for the freedom of Europe.
My twin uncles fought for the freedom of South Koreans. One was MIA in December of '50, the other was KIA in January of '51. Will I, a retired U.S. fighting man, remember? You better believe it hoss! Don't YOU dare forget!
If you can read, thank a teacher.
If you can read English, thank a Vet.
Some veterans bear visible signs of their service: a missing limb, a aged scar, a certain look in the eye. Others may carry the evidence inside them: a pin holding a bone together,a piece of shrapnel in the leg, or perhaps another sort of inner steel: the soul's ally forged in the refinery of adversity. Except in parades, however, the men and women who have kept America safe wear no badge or emblem. You can't tell a vet just by looking.
What is a vet?
He is the cop on the beat who spent six months in Saudi Arabia sweating two gallons a day making sure the armored personnel carriers didn't run out of fuel.
He is the barroom loudmouth, dumber than five wooden planks, whose overgrown frat-boy behavior is outweighed a hundred times in the cosmic scales by four hours of exquisite bravery near the 38th parallel.
She - or he - is the nurse who fought against futility and went to sleep sobbing every night for two solid years in Da Nang.
He is the POW who went away one person and came back another - or didn't come back AT ALL. He is the Quantico drill instructor that has never seen combat - but has saved countless lives by turning slouchy, no-account
rednecks and gang members into Marines, and teaching them to watch each other's backs. He is the parade - riding Legionnaire who pins on his ribbons and medals with a prosthetic hand. He is the career quartermaster who watches the ribbons and medals passhim by. He is the three anonymous heroes in The Tomb Of The Unknowns, whose presence at the Arlington National Cemetery must forever preserve the memory of all the anonymous heroes whose valor dies unrecognized with them on the battlefield or in the ocean's sunless deep.
He is the old guy bagging groceries at the supermarket - palsied now and aggravatingly slow - who helped liberate a Nazi death camp and who wishes all day long that his wife were still alive to hold him when the nightmares come. He is an ordinary and yet an extraordinary human being a person who offered some of his life's most vital years in the service of his country, and who sacrificed his ambitions so others would not have to sacrifice theirs. He is a soldier and a savior and a sword against the darkness, and he is nothing more than the finest, greatest testimony on behalf of the finest, greatest nation ever known. So remember, each time you see someone who has served our country, just lean over and say Thank You. That's all most people need, and in most cases it will mean more than any medals they could have been awarded or were awarded.Two little words that mean a lot, "THANK YOU".
Remember November 11th is Veterans Day.
"It is the soldier, not the reporter, Who has given us freedom of the press. It is the soldier, not the poet, Who has given us freedom of speech. It is the soldier, not the campus organizer, Who has given us the freedom to demonstrate. It is the soldier, Who salutes the flag,Who serves beneath the flag, and whose coffin is draped by the flag, Who allows the protestor to burn the flag.
Father Dennis Edward O'Brien, Lt. Col., USMC
Oh, tell your teacher to go pound sand ...on NORMANDY BEACH, the SANDS OF IOW JIMA, TARAWA, BATAAN, PEARL HARBOR..then let that ignorant broad ask IS THERE ONE REASON NOT TO REMEMBER OUR VETERANS ON 11 NOVEMBER EACH YEAR?
Happy Independence Day!
And remember our freedom never was free...we have always had to fight for it on many levels, and we should never shun that fight! Teach your children! They have to carry the torch of freedom long after we are gone! Teach them to respect our brave soldiers and to be patriots in anyway they can themselves!
