Re: Memorial Day Tribute

Thanks for your your relevant and deeply moving post that embraces the truest meaning of Memorial Day, remembering and honoring those who gave their lives while in service to our great nation. I, too, lack the qualities of oration that are uniquely evident in the words expressed therein, and I do not know who that American might be. But, I believe his (or her) words ring true for everyone of the men and women that I was honored to have served with throughout my Naval career. The naysayers might have their own selfish thoughts, words and deeds, but "we" know the truth - that is so eloquently portrayed by the writer.
God bless those who gave their all.

Re: Memorial Day Tribute

A tribute to Memorial Day unlike any other for those who gave all in the defense of our great nation.
Thanks for taking the time and effort Ben. A must read.

And i'll take a shot. President Ronald Reagan?

Re: Memorial Day Tribute

Ronald Regan would also have been my best guess, but....alas, no! Ben divulged his name in an email to me. Hint, he had a brilliant military career (one of what, I believe, they call "The Long Gray Line"??)

Re: Memorial Day Tribute

Well said Ben.
