In honor of or fallen men and women on this day of remembrance, this is a poem that I am fond of I would like to share it with all of you.

Home of the Brave
by Roger J Robicheau

Through the feel of war they brave this day
How proud they stand, their unselfish way

Our soldiers bear what we cannot see
They assure our right to live life free

Each trained will face an unknown fate
Our support they need, do not hesitate

Just imagine how this land would be
Without their courage - catastrophe

All the liberties we have grown to know
Would not exist, this life would go

Find a thankfulness within your mind
Speak gratitude for our bravest kind

Have the willingness to show you care
For fallen heroes, hold back no tear

Reach out to God with his guiding light
For our troops do pray, both day and night

America raise your flags to wave
For we truly are 'home of the brave'

Thanks for posting this wOOdy, my feelings exactly.

If you're American, it doesn't matter what you believe, there will be a soldier out there protecting your freedom to think and do, and don't you forget it.

I never have and never will forget the courage of those soldiers, living, and those who have sacrificed their only life so that I might continue forward.

Happy Memorial Day
