I wish I could have found this post BEFORE Veteran's Day! But I am glad I found it. Thanks for sharing. We are free because of the brave.

Absolutely fantastic!
Thank-you so very much for sharing!!
I am lucky enough to have a big old steamer trunk that has pics (on tin and glass) medals that go back to the civil war want to donate to museum or some like place...
The sacrifices people make for us need to be remembered, and not taken lightly! I am grateful to wake up every day and have the freedom to walk down the street and not be shot at or questioned where I'm going.Being able to drive several miles and not have to go through a check point, etc.
I was in the Marine Corps, people do need to appreciate their daily lives, and thank the solders. PERIOD.

Thank-you for this link.

I think having fun is ok. We want are ancestors to be happy we are enjoying what they fought for but it good to take a little time and reflect on what they did for us and what they gave up.

Thank you so much for posting this1 I was trying to explain this same thing some people at work, that we have our mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, husbands and wives that are fighting and have died so that we can go to the beach and bbq and have fun.

Thanks for sharing! I am a navy brat and I am grateful for the reminder of the price of our freedom!

If you are like me the idea a having a 3 day weekend means catching up on chores and having fun. But please on this 3 day weekend take a moment out to remember the real meaning of this weekend and those who have laid their lives down so we could enjoy the freedoms we have. Take a moment out and view this video.
