Bush pays tribute to fallen U.S. troops

Speaking of the more than 368,000 buried through history at Arlington National Cemetery, Bush said, “Nothing said today will ease your pain. But each of you needs to know our country thanks you and we embrace you and we will never forget the terrible loss you have suffered.”

“The greatest memorial to our fallen troops cannot be found in the words we say or the places we gather,” he added. “The more lasting tribute is all around us.”

Memorial Day 2

America has never lacked for heroes, men and women who exemplify patriotism, honor, duty, and sacrifice. (Captains Quarters)

Freedom is never without cost. Thank you to those that have made the ultimate sacrifice and a prayer for their families that have lost loved ones while serving to protect the United States of America.

God Bless and Thank You.

On a personal note I say thank you and you are missed to my uncle who is buried in Arlington National Cemetery. Thank you from your namesake, Red.

      God Bless all of those brave Americans who “gave all” by making the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom!! God Bless America :-)

      Shame on John Edwards for staging an “anti-war protest” this Memorial Day weekend :-(

      Many lost their lives for our freedom, but none of those lost their honor.

      May we all be mindful of those who’ve given their lives for our freedom ~ God Bless those men and women and their sacrafice. Bless the men and women that serve in our armed forces today and the families that have been left behind ~ I’m very appreciative and thankful for our vetrans and those who serve and have served our country.

      One television host said this morning that today is the official beginning off summer.. I thought, how sad if Memorial Day is looked upon as the beginning of summer ~ it’s a day to have revrence and respect for those who’ve served and passed on ~ to reflect & remember loved ones who are no longer with us ~ give thanks ~

      I say, Thank you from the bottom of my heart ~ and for the men and women whose sacrafice has given so much to me and my family ~ the lives lost, so I may go to church to worship and pray, so I may travel freely, I can proudly display and fly my American Flag in honor of those who’ve served…for my freedom., freedom ~ we’re so blessed and have much to be thankful for…

      Today, I’m mindful of thanking God for those who’ve given their lives, so I may live freely in a country where we have so much abundance and we’re so blessed. I’m also thankful for my savior and Lord Jesus Christ, who gave the ultimate sacrafice for us all.

      Have a Blessed Memorial Day.

      On the “Line-Up” thread I posted the original verses of “The Battle Hymn of the Republic.” At the time, this wasn’t up, or it would have gone here.

      Please take a look. Let’s dedicate our lives to fighting injustice, in Aruba and elsewhere. That’s the best way that we can assert the dignity of being human.

      God Bless our troops and all of our Veterans who have defended our liberty! Please be careful and come home safely!

      Thank you for all your sacrifices, both troops and families!

      Having worn our nations uniform during a time of war and having older relatives that did the same during previous conflicts, my prayers go out too all who serve today.

      I am not worthy of such greatness

      Today if never again visit the sites that help our military and their families. It doesn’t take alot of money and just a little time. We live in the greatest country in the world and that is directly due to our military. Men and women who freely go to protect the United States and our freedom. Freedom is not free. We all have the duty to protect our freedom. Show you support today. I AM A (PROUD) AMERICAN …..THANKS TO THE MEN AND WOMEN OF THE US MILITARY AND THIER FAMILIES. GOD BLESS YOU ALL

      God bless all those who have made so many sacrifices for the cause of freedom and liberty, that we hold dear in our hearts as Americans.

      God bless the men and women of the military, whose brave service to our country, will forever be honored and remembered.

      Great article and God Bless them all. We would have nothing today without all these brave men and women. Many times we take so much for granted. I had 3 brothers who served. 2 uncles who did and a nephew who has served twice in Iraq.

      God Bless them all

      From Gen Douglas MacArthur’s 1962 Thayer Award Speech; one of the greatest pieces of oratory in American history:

      “…And what sort of soldiers are those you are to lead? Are they reliable? Are they brave? Are they capable of victory? Their story is known to all of you. It is the story of the American man-at-arms. My estimate of him was formed on the battlefield many, many years ago, and has never changed. I regarded him then as I regard him now — as one of the world’s noblest figures, not only as one of the finest military characters, but also as one of the most stainless. His name and fame are the birthright of every American citizen. In his youth and strength, his love and loyalty, he gave all that mortality can give…”

      Amen to them. To those who do not speak today.

      Thank you for your sacrifice and your service.
