    Good morning. Thank you for the memorial day wish, praise for all our servicemen & women that put theire(spelling brain cramp?)lives on the line every day so that America can enjoy the freedom that we have. And God bless and comfort those and their families that have paid the ultimate sacrifice for this great nation.

    could not sleep all night so I thought I would post a couple more pictures, hope you like. Now what do you mean we look mischevious? haha, I guess I can't deny the pic of McKenzie and me.

    I made the mistake of not taking sleep med. last night, instead had one glass of wine just to see if that would help sleep, did not work so very much good. Hope this finds you doing well and you have a wonderfull memorial day weekend. God bless, Jim.
    Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulations, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the comfort wich we ourselves are comforted by God. 2 Corinthians 1:3

    Happy memorial Day friends!!!
    I am also honored and amazed by our veterans and the sacrifices they have made. My dad was a Korean War Vet, he passed away when I was 16 but I remember all the things He told me about war, I have shared this with my sisters, they were much younger, and my kids.
    We will visit my son and his wife and the 2 grandkids. Can hardly wait!!! they live a couple hours away and we do not see them much.
    Grace and peace.

    Thanks for the support from the military wife on the board:
    Husband - Lieutenant Colonel, USAF
    Son - Marine & Iraq War Veteran
    Son-in-law - Airman, USAF
    Father - US Navy, WWII & Korean Conflict
    Father-in-law - Marine, Korean Conflict
    2 Brothers-in-law - Marines
    1 Brother-in-law - US Navy
    Both of us have a long line of military heroes in our families, going all the way back to the Revolutionary War, so we know what it means to be a military family.
    I feel blessed that my son came back safely from Iraq, and I feel for the mothers and wives of those who did not. Now I worry for my daughter, whose husband is training to be a para-rescuer.

    thanks lori, what a great opportunity for us to remember our brave military personnel and their families. I lost a very good friend in the viet nam war, and your thread caused me to stop and say a private thanks to him and his family for their ultimate sacrifice.

    Marla....what a history your family has...thanks to you and every member of your extended family.

    To all verterans, this country would not enjoy the freedom that we do if it had not been for each of you. Thank you,
    Phyllis

    share a smile today

    I am from a Marine Corps family . . . everyone in my family joined the Marine Corps. My husband is also a retired Marine. I love the USA!!! I am an officer at my local VFW and I want to give a shout out to all of our service men and women who have fought and continue to fight for our freedom. To those who gave their lives . . . You did not die in vain. This is the greatest country in the world! Thank you to those people who gave up their lives so that I could live mine freely. Semper Fi

    Hey there Angie,

    My father served in the Marine Corps during the Korean Conflict-once a Marine, always a Marine. Most everyone in my family has, or is serving in one of the branches of the military. My Nephew is in Army Special Forces-the Green Berets. He's at Ft. Bragg training to be a combat surgeon. He just made E-5 Sgt. The Army interns spec-op surgeons at civilian hospitals for real world experience on top of all the training they get from the Army. He's only 22, and has treated gunshot wounds and delivered a baby. Amazing stuff. His next big hurdle is completing the freefall jump course. He's Airborne qualified and has made a ton of low altitude static line jumps-basically you jump at low alititude and the chute opens automatically. To pass the freefall course they have to do what's called a HALO Jump. They jump from 30,000 feet with oxygen and freefall to 1000 feet before they open their chute. Awesome stuff. We're very, very proud of him.

    Everyone have a safe weekend, and on Monday, please say a prayer for the families of the fallen.

    Rob

    God Bless the men and women of Our Armed Forces. Memorial Day should not just be one day a year...it should be constant. The sacrifice these people and their families make to protect throngs of people that they will never even meet...it just boggles the mind how selflessly they put themselves in harm's way so that we can be free and safe. As the granddaughter of a man who earned the Bronze Star in WWII, the daughter and daughter-in-law of two distinguished Vietnam veterans, I hold my head high for those who fight today, who fought yesterday, and the heroes of tomorrow.

    God Bless America!
    Blessings,
    Carrie
