A Tribute to our Military.

by Jacquie  

thumbnailCA0VY9DN There are Twenty Four United States Military Cemeteries on foreign soil that are the final resting places for our precious blood. Of course, not included are the unmarked graves of those buried where they fell, along with many more lost at sea, and those who rest in our homeland. We cannot forget; fellow Americans that returned home, some injured beyond compare, only to assume the mantle of law abiding and contributing citizens.

America has a long history of fighting battles to free humankind, and to protect all that we as Americans, hold dear. The emotional cost to our Nation has been heartbreaking, the grief to generations of families unimaginable, and yet the Military Might of America is forever ready.

How do we repay them, and how do we honor their memories and contributions to us the American People? Is it sufficient to determine a couple of days a year, and then go back to doing what pleases us? How insignificant to give so little time to the fallen. We need to ask ourselves why they served and for many why they were willing to sacrifice their lives. I feel confident that if  asked, the answer would be, “We gave in order to defend the Constitution, and the American way of life.”

The finest way to honor the fallen, and those who serve, is to uphold America as the Founding Fathers, intended,when they wrote the Constitution.  As Patriots, let your voices be heard, in the Halls of Congress,  let your voices be heard in the School’s, let your voices be heard amongst your Neighbors, let your voices be heard in Cities, Towns, and Municipalities, all over this Great Nation,let your voices be heard when you vote, back your vote with knowledge, then and only then can we say to those who served, and to those who made the ultimate sacrifice,

Rest easy, sleep well my brothers and sisters.

Know the line has held, your job is done.

Rest easy, sleep well.

Others have taken up where you fell, the line has held.

Peace, peace, and farewell…..

Poet: Hugh Wyles.
