“These are times that will try men’s souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman.” – Thomas Paine
Governor Sarah Palin has never faltered in her honor, respect, and active support of our United States Military. Listen to her sincere words and see the devotion, appreciation, and compassion on her face as she visits our troops in the United States, Kuwait, Germany, Iraq, and Kosovo.
Memorial Day, Remembering Past and Present Sacrifice
“Let no neglect, no ravages of time, testify to the present or to the coming generations that we have forgotten as a people the cost of a free and undivided republic.” – General Orders No.11, Grand Army of the Republic Headquarters, May 5, 1868
This weekend, as we enjoy time with family and friends, we should stop and remember the meaning of this national holiday. Memorial Day is a uniquely American holiday that finds its origins in the aftermath of our Civil War, when our country searched for a proper way to commemorate the many who had fallen in the long struggle to end slavery and unify our nation.
Today, we remember all of those throughout our history and to this very day who gave their lives serving our country in uniform. Our prayers are especially with the surviving family members for whom everyday is memorial day, as they live on remembering their loved ones who died selflessly to protect the freedoms we hold dear.
And on Memorial Day, let us also remember all veterans, past and present, because everyone who wears the uniform and swears the oath is willing to make that ultimate sacrifice for America. So, in honoring them let’s keep in mind this version of a popular poem as we show respect for those willing to sacrifice all for our exceptional country:
“It is the veteran, not the preacher, who has given us freedom of religion.
It is the veteran, not the reporter, who has given us freedom of the press.
It is the veteran, not the poet, who has given us freedom of speech.
It is the veteran, not the campus organizer, who has given us freedom to assemble.
It is the veteran, not the lawyer, who has given us the right to a fair trial.
It is the veteran, not the politician, who has given us the right to vote.
It is the veteran, who salutes the flag, who serves under the flag, and whose coffin will be draped by the flag.”
- Sarah Palin
(Enjoy this version of the poem recited by Fred Thompson.)
May our veterans find the honor and recognition they deserve for their willingness to risk all so that our nation might dwell in peace and safety. May our nation learn to respect and acknowledge those who have served their country well. Thank you, Governor Palin, for remembering and honoring our brave men and women in uniform this Memorial Day. We are standing up for our nation alongside you, and like you, we shall never apologize for being Americans. God bless our heroic troops, God bless Governor Palin, and God bless America!
