Memorial Day

Seemingly every year I echo the same message...Memorial Day is so much more than just a three day holiday.

Memorial Day is just the way it sounds... a day to honor our servicemen and women, past and present.

These days, it is especially important to remember the transgender troops who are being discriminated against. by the Washington led administration (coward in chief).

It is also important to remember all the troops who silently paid the ultimate sacrifice without ever having the chance to live life as their authentic selves.

Please take a moment to remember and thanks to all of you who have served or are serving.

  1. Armed Forces Day, which is on the third Saturday of May every year, is the day for honoring those who are currently serving in our military. Unfortunately, it usually goes by unnoticed by most people. Veterans Day is to honor all who have served in the past. Memorial Day is a day set aside for the memory of those who died while serving. While I agree that our thoughts and prayers should go out to all who have or who are now serving, I think it's also important for us to recognize those who have made the ultimate sacrifice.

    Another group who should be acknowledged is of those who served, and although escaped death at the time, died some time later as a result of injuries sustained during military service. Whether those injuries were physical, mental, or emotional, their ultimate sacrifice should be honored. Far too many veterans are taking their own lives each year. My brother-in-law, who served in Vietnam, eventually died from a cancer that was determined to have been caused by his exposure to Agent Orange. Many just end up going through a thousand little deaths.

    So, I thank you for your service, but, today, I'm more thankful that you're still around to tell you!
