Memorial Day, an American holiday observed on the last Monday of May, honors men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military. Originally known as Decoration Day, it originated in the years following the Civil War and became an official federal holiday in 1971. Many Americans observe Memorial Day by visiting cemeteries or memorials, holding family gatherings and participating in parades.

Please remember that Memorial Day is not about being off work or picnics. It is a day to remember those who died serving our country. So in honor of them, keep these things in mind.

  • It is the VETERAN not the preacher, who has given us freedom of religion.
  • It is the VETERAN not the reporter, who has given us freedom of the press.
  • It is the VETERAN not the poet, who has given us freedom of speech.
  • It is the VETERAN not the campus organizer, who has given us freedom to assemble.
  • It is the VETERAN not the lawyer, who has given us the right to a fair trial.
  • It is the VETERAN not the politician, who has given us the right to vote.
  • It is the VETERAN who salutes the Flag.
  • It is the VETERAN who serves under the Flag.
ETERNAL REST GRANT THEM O LORD, AND LET PERPETUAL LIGHT SHINE UPON THEM. May God Bless them all!




A listener sent me this very moving video. I would encourage you to spend a few minutes watching, it really brings it into perspective.


Finally, we offer this poem to all who have served, and our thanks, also, to those who are currently serving.



Let's honor our military,
The men and women who serve,
Whose dedication to our country
Does not falter, halt or swerve.

Let's respect them for their courage;
They're ready to do what's right
To keep America safe,
So we can sleep better at night.

Let's support and defend our soldiers,
Whose hardships are brutal and cruel,
Whose discipline we can't imagine,
Who follow each order and rule.

Here's to those who choose to be warriors
And their helpers good and true;
They're fighting for American values;
They're fighting for me and you.
