Memorial Day – 2017: Remembering, Thanking & Honoring Our Military Heroes For Their Service & Sacrifice
REMEMBERING AND HONORING OUR MILITARY HEROES WHO GAVE ALL … BECAUSE FREEDOM IS NEVER FREE AND HONOR IS FOREVER.
On this Memorial Day 2017, Scared Monkeys sends a special thank you to all of the military men, woman and their families who made the ultimate sacrificed so that We, the United States of America, could remain the home of the free because of the brave. We thank those who gave their lives in the name of liberty and freedom from the bottom of our hearts. We can no longer than them in person, but we can honor their sacrifices to this great Country. Thank you and God Bless you, we shall never forget you your service and sacrifice. Please take time today to remember what this day is truly about and the men and women that we have lost.
Remembering my uncle and all the brave heroes who sacrificed so much … I can remember like it was yesterday, but in fact it was more than 25 years ago, when I stood in Arlington National Cemetery for the funeral of my Uncle and namesake. I can remember the sound of Taps and the 21 gun salute as tears flowed down my face as I laid to rest my hero and a man that gave so much for his country and for me. A man who was the toughest and most honorable, proud and yet humble man I have ever known. God bless all.
Double-Amputee Marine Jose Luis Sanchez Carries the American Flag at the 2017 Boston Marathon (VIDEO)
BOSTON STRONG … MARINE STRONG … PATRIOT STRONG!!!
Yesterday was the running of the Boston Marathon and lets just say, it was amazing. For those who have been to the Boston Marathon and have watched it over the years understand that the race is much more than who wins and who has the fasted time, it is about the journey, the runners and the many stories as to why anyone would put themselves through such a grueling ordeal. Such is the 2017 inspirational story of Marine Jose Luis Sanchez, a double-amputee who lost his legs in Afghanistan. This American patriot on Patriot’s Day at the 121st Boston Marathon ran the entire race while carrying an American flag.
A true inspiration and American hero
It is hard enough running a marathon, imagine doing so with having the honor and glory of carrying the American flag through out.
Watch the story of this American Hero, God Bless and Semper Fi!!!

- Constable Jeffrey Bartsch, Police Officer and Mental Health Advocate, Honoring A Hero … A Ride to Remember!
- I had the honor of getting to know Cst. Derek Pineo in 2007 at RCMP Depot in 2007. Tragically, Derek lost his life on duty on July 20, 2012 when his police cruiser collided with a moose near Wilkie, SK. Derek was 38 years old. In 2016, I rode the 1st annual Saskatchewan Ride to Remember law enforcement cycling event from Saskatoon Police HQ to the Regina Parliament grounds approx 320km to honor fallen officers who lost their lives in the line of duty. At the end of the ride, we took part in the Saskatchewan Police & Peace Officer’s Memorial situated at the Saskatchewan Parliament grounds. The focus of my ride in 2016 was to honor Derek. This year in 2017, upon speaking with Derek’s wife Natasha, we would like to invite and bring Derek’s son, Kayleb to ride alongside the Ride to Remember to honor his dad.
Ex-Clinton volunteer Dan Grilo Condemned & Loses Job After Vile & Hateful Tweet at widow of fallen SEAL William “Ryan” Owens
THE VILE LEFT GETS WHATS COMING TO THEM … HATE IS CONSUMING THEM
Dan Grilo, a former volunteer for both Hillary Clinton and President Barack Obama, who appears to be so full of Trump hate that he cannot contain himself, attacked the widow of Navy Seal William “Ryan” Owens on Twitter saying, “Sorry, Owens’ wife, you’re not helping yourself or your husband’s memory by standing there and clapping like an idiot. Trump just used you.” Does the LEFT have no shame? Grillo’s reaction was following the moment from Trump’s Address to Congress where he honored the widow and the memory of her fallen husband, Navy Seal William “Ryan” Owens. What kind of a vile individual makes these types of comments to the widow of a Navy Seal killed why protecting the very liberties and freedoms that allow a LEFTY like this to make such a comment?
What rock did this individual crawl out from? After these hateful comments to such an amazing moment, he might want to crawl back there real fast.
A former Hillary Clinton volunteer drew swift condemnation — and lost his job — after mocking the widow of a fallen Navy SEAL who was honored by the president during his congressional address Tuesday night.
Dan Grilo, who said in his Twitter profile that he was a former volunteer for both Hillary Clinton and President Barack Obama, made the remarks after Trump paid tribute to Carryn Owens. She is the widow of U.S. Navy SEAL William “Ryan” Owens, who was killed in a counterterrorism raid in Yemen last month.
“Our veterans have delivered for this nation—and now we must deliver for them,” Trump said, eliciting an extended standing ovation from the entire chamber for a visibly emotional Owens.
“Ryan died as he lived: a warrior, and a hero – battling against terrorism and securing our nation,” Trump said.
While widely regarded as the most powerful moment of the night, Grilo was not impressed. Responding to a tweet from L.A. Times reporter Matt Pearce, who noted that Owens was crying and overwhelmed, Grilo tweeted:
“Sorry, Owens’ wife, you’re not helping yourself or your husband’s memory by standing there and clapping like an idiot. Trump just used you.”
UPDATE I: Dan Grilo, the pathetic LEFTY who attacked Carryn Owens, the widow of U.S. Navy SEAL William “Ryan” Owens, on Twitter for being a special guest of President Trump for his joint Address to Congress has been fired from his job.
In a statement, the company said that while the message was from his personal account, “his comments were inconsistent with the Company’s values.”
“Regardless of whether the comments in the tweet were intended to cause the hurt and anger that they ultimately generated, they were unacceptable to us, and the individual who issued the tweet is no longer affiliated with Liberty,” the statement said.
UPDATE II: Donald Trump, Jr. took a screenshot of the since deleted tweet and posted it on Twitter, writing, “Hatred from the other side. I would think this is beyond what a human is capable of saying to someone, but it’s not!”
WOW!!! Carryn Owens, Widow of Slain Navy SEAL William Ryan Owens Receives Standing Ovation During Trump’s Address to Congress (VIDEO)
THE MOST EMOTIONAL AND HEART TUGGING MOMENT I HAVE EVER SEEN IN A PRESIDENT’S ADDRESS TO CONGRESS EVER!!!
This was the part of the speech that will forever be remembered … A Commander in Chief honoring the widow of a slain military hero. Tonight during President Donald Trump’s Address to Congress, President Trump paid homage to Carryn Owens, the widow of slain Navy SEAL, William Ryan Owens, who received a standing ovation from all in attendance on both sides of the aisle. Chief special warfare operator William “Ryan” Owens was killed in an intelligence-gathering raid in Yemen last month. President Trump said, “Ryan died as he lived, a warrior and a hero, battling against terrorism and securing our nation.” As all looked upon the wife of William Ryan Owens in tears, looking up to the Heavens and mouthing, I love you baby and thanks to the audience, all in attendance continued the standing ovation, well most except for the disrespectful Democrats, for several minutes. No Carryn Owens, it is we that need to thank you and heroes like your husband that protect our freedoms and liberties. After the applause stopped, Trump ad-libbed and said to Carryn Owens, “And Ryan is looking down right now, you know that, and he is very happy because I think he just broke a record” referring to the endless standing ovation his widow received. What a touching and moving moment as I have ever seen at such an event.
“I just spoke to our great General [James] Mattis — just now — who reconfirmed that, and I quote, ‘Ryan was a part of a highly successful raid that generated large amounts of vital intelligence that will lead to many more victories in the future against our enemy, Ryan’s legacy is etched into eternity.”
“For as the bible teaches us, there is no greater act of love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. Ryan laid down his life for his friends, for his country, and for our Freedom – we will never forget him.”
President Donald Trump paid homage to the first military death of his nascent administration in his address to a joint session of Congress on Tuesday, creating a memorable, heartfelt moment of recognition for the slain Navy SEAL’s widow.
Carryn Owens received the longest applause of the night — totaling more than two minutes of sustained applause — after Trump acknowledged her presence and the heroic efforts of her late husband, chief special warfare operator William “Ryan” Owens, who was killed in an intelligence-gathering raid in Yemen last month.
“The challenges we face as a nation are great, but our people are even greater — and none are greater or braver than those who fight for America in uniform,” Trump said. “We are blessed to be joined tonight by Carryn Owens, the widow of U.S. Navy special operator senior chief William ‘Ryan’ Owens. Ryan died as he lived, a warrior and a hero, battling against terrorism and securing our nation.”
Vice President Mike Pence and House Speaker Paul Ryan, who were seated behind Trump, stood up to applaud as attendees of the president’s address showered Owens with the 30-second standing ovation.
