It is for us they signed the muster, the ledger, the roll. It is for us they served, they fought, they struggled. It is for us they suffered, they bled, they sacrificed, they died.

Today, it is for them we reflect, we ponder, we display, we honor. It is for them we congregate, we commemorate, we lionize, we appreciate.

God Bless the men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice so that others may inherit and enjoy the freedoms of this great country.

    Thank you for reading and for the “like”. I frequently think of or see you somewhere a sentence expressing what I decide is the thought of the day. It doesn’t happen every day but I’d call it the thought of the day anyway. Today I chose a sentence that you wrote: “some people have a talent for picking a problem out of a barrel of solutions”. Hope you don’t mind if I borrow that once in a while I will remember to quote you. Thanks again for your time and attention.

  6. Great post. I can’t think of any way to say it better.

  7. Thank you. Yes. To all of the generations of people who gave their lives and treasure for a vision.

  8. Great post. Very well said.

  9. Well written, and may we always remember. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I’m glad you liked my post, Don’t Read Unless You Want to Know. I hope you’ll check out more of my blog and share with your friends. @jeancogdell at Jean’s Writing
