“Today is the day we put aside to remember fallen heroes and to pray that no heroes will ever have to die for us again. It’s a day of thanks for the valor of others, a day to remember the splendor of America and those of her children who rest in this cemetery and others.”  -Ronald Reagan  

Let us not forget what this day is really about.    

It’s not about a three day weekend. It’s about remembering those who gave the ultimate sacrifice for our country.

My service in the Air Force doesn’t hold a candle to what men and women went through in all of America’s wars that saw combat. Let’s take a moment and remember their bravery and the ones that didn’t come home.

'Happy' Memorial Day?

You’re not supposed to celebrate Memorial Day, you’re supposed to observe it. It is a day to pay respect to and memorialize our service men and women who have died, not party it up. Sure, gather with family, cook out, shoot off fireworks, they fought for us to be able to do that, but don’t forget the real reason you’re off of work or school on Monday (Unless you work) - to remember and reflect. There shouldn’t be sales or parties, but gatherings and community. If you wouldn’t do it to mark the anniversary of 11 September 2001, you probably shouldn’t do it on Memorial Day. So let’s stop saying ‘Happy Memorial Day!’ and instead wish each other peace and safety, and we can celebrate our asses off for good ol’ ‘Murica another day, perhaps the 4th of July? Have a safe Memorial Day weekend, thank you to all of those who serve and have served this country honourably, and may those who gave the ultimate sacrifice rest peacefully. Godspeed.

To fund border wall, Trump administration weighs cuts to Coast Guard, airport security
The Federal Emergency Management Agency also could see significant cuts under an OMB proposal.

OK, let’s assume, just for a moment, that Mexico is full of “bad hombres” who are “bringing drugs,” “who are rapists,” etc. What about all the “bad hombres” who will fly over, or sail around, the Great Wall of America? You’re cutting the funding for the people who will keep us safe from them.

ManChildTrump really is an idiot!

A boxed Devil Dog:
Off the shores of Guam, Coast Guardsmen and Marines handle a “Devil Dog” with care as they transfer the war dog from a Coast Guard landing barge to an LVT. He is boxed because he is trained for battle and apt to go after any and all but his own handler. 1944
