052014, U.S. Memorial Day, John 15:13

John 15:13, New King James Version (NKJV)

13 Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends.

As Americans, citizens of the United States Of America, we owe a great debt to the members of our U.S. Military Forces. Some have served and returned home to family and friends. Others served and paid the ultimate cost for freedom. On this Memorial Day, let us not forget the members, past and present, who served during the periods of war of World War I, World War II, The Korean War, The Vietnam War, Desert Shield, Desert Storm, The War In Iraq, The War In Afghanistan, and other contingencies around the world. Not a lot is being said about the War In Iraq. The war in Iraq was conducted during the 2003-2011 time frame. There were 4486 US war casualties during The Iraq War.

Please take time to look at the following videos. As you consider the videos consider the greatness of our country, The United States Of America. Remember that our country is a great country, because it is a good country, and that as long as we are a good country, we will continue being a great country.

And yes, “I pledge Allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with Liberty and Justice for all.”

As a young airman, stationed in the Philippines during the Vietnam War, I was able to visit this cemetery. It was an honor for me to have walked among the grave sites of the more than 17,000 war heroes of the Second World War.
