Memorial Day 2011

 


 As I approach the gates of heaven;
St. Peter I will tell;
One more soldier reporting sir;
I've served my time in hell.

-Mark Anthony Gresswell

I love that quote. True unto the end.

Yep... I was thinking of my late brother-in-law this morning... his first day of combat in WWII was at Normandy Beach on D-Day... he later served at The Battle of the Bulge. Those were two of the biggest applications of Hell from WWII of which I am aware...

Thank you all. Growing up during the Viet Nam war and now living through what has been going on for years, I appreciate our military men and women more than I can express. We all should take more than one day to remember those that gave the ultimate sacrifice for our freedoms.

Ubermouth ~ It is. And I believe very true for those who've served in combat.
