Memorial Day, 2014

memorial day 2014In the past I have written extensively about Memorial Day on the Biker Law Blog. You can read a very large write up on the Memorial Day holiday I did in 2007 by clicking here now.

If you don’t already know, Memorial Day is not just about a day off of work, a barbecue with the family, a day at the beach, or a day of drinking. Memorial Day is a national holiday to honor those heroes who have died in the service of the United States of America.

Somehow many people confuse Memorial Day with Veterans Day in that they honor those who served in the military, and those who have died in the military on this day.

This day is meant specifically to honor those who died in the service of our nation. As a veteran myself, I do not mind honoring veterans, but this day is not for veterans, this day is for those who have died in the service of our country.

On this day, Memorial Day, May 26, 2014, we find ourselves still at war in Afghanistan, with troops deployed all over the world.

We have men and women still fighting and dying in Afghanistan, after 13 years of war.

The Afghanistan war, is the longest war in the history of the United States of America.

Memorial Day is a day to honor those men and women who have died from the Revolutionary war, all the way through to today’s wars.

When you go by any National Cemetery you’ll see rows of white headstones which marked the graves of many thousands of people who have died in the service of their nation.

Many people just drive by and not give a second thought.

I strongly suggest that you take you and your family to visit a National Cemetery sometime. Walk around the gravestones with your family, read the gravestones, and maybe you’ll understand just a little bit of the gravity of the sacrifice that our men and women have made in the service of the United States of America.

It’s one thing to put a uniform on and serve in the armed forces like me and many others have before me have done. It’s another thing to pay the ultimate sacrifice in the service of our nation.

It is important to know that you are able to live in the United States of America, and enjoy your lives in the United States of America, because of the sacrifices those brave souls who gave their lives in the service of our nation paid.

Maybe today you’ll take a few minutes to reflect on those who have given their lives in the service of our nation, and thank them for the freedom they have given you and all of us.

May God be with those who have given their lives in the service of the United States of America. God bless America.
