Memorial Day 2010

A day to thank our veterans and their families, who have given so much to protect our many freedoms

The United States Department of Veterans Affairs has a fact-filled site with a treasure trove of historic information regarding the observance of Memorial Day.

We invite you to listen to this haunting rendition of “Taps” played by the U.S. Marine Band.

Then please take a few moments to read Oliver North’s very appropriate commentary, which we recommend.

    Thanks for this!

    Here’s what those brave American military fought and died for. To ensure the right of people like California Republican U.S. Rep. Tom McClintock to be able to speak this truth from the House floor.

    By the way, when Mexico’s president Calderon blasted the United States, the Congressional Democrats APPLAUDED him. Makes you real proud, doesn’t it?

    Obama has called us arrogant as he makes apologies around the globe. Here is our arrogance as exhibited in Europe alone, in alphabetical order. Each number represents the American casualties buried at each site. They are a source of pride, yes, but also an incalculable loss to this nation in fathers, sons, grandsons, uncles, nephews, co-workers, friends and neighbors. They were our treasure.

    Rep. McClintock speech is one that should go in to the annals of history as one of the greatest speeches of modern history.

    Capt. Marvel, you are so right. No reason to apologize.
