To Our Fallen Brothers and Sisters Who Gave Their Last Full Measure in Service to Our Country

It is 1500 hours....please join me in a moment of silence.

Memorial Day

Created a few short years after our own Civil War, we set aside this day to honor and celebrate the lives of those who died in service to our country.

I am not going to write what I think about Memorial Day, you all know my thoughts concerning the over commercialization of our lost brothers and sisters. Today I am only leaving you with the images of those that I honor this day.

Sgt Mike Stokely

1LT Robert Seidel III

Capt John Ryan Dennison

To our "Absent Companions" a toast! Rest easy on Fiddler's Green.


The Armorer has some thoughts you will want to read.
Jimbo at Blackfive speaks out!
Laughing Wolf also remembers his fallen comrades and family.
And even more at Blackfive from: McQ and Deebow.
Video at Chuck Z's place.
Cassandra remembers 15 Marines from 1st Light Armored Reconnaissance Battalion.
Greyhawk in his usual fashion out does us all.
