28 May 2007, Memorial Day

It is the soldier, not the reporter, who has given us freedom of the press. It is the soldier, not the poet, who has given us freedom of speech. It is the soldier, not the campus organizer, who has given us the freedom to demonstrate. It is the soldier, who salutes the flag, who serves beneath the flag, and whose coffin is draped by the flag, who allows the protester to burn the flag. - Charles M. Province



In memory of those of Task Force Phoenix V, Afghanistan, who gave the ultimate sacrifice:

SGM McLoughlin

SFC Fuga

SSG Lindsey

MSG Deghand

2LT Lundell

SGT Nguyen

SGT Hughie



Contemplate the mangled bodies of your countrymen, and then say, 'What should be the reward of such sacrifices?'...If you love wealth better than liberty, the tranquillity of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen. - Samuel Adams



Before I went to Iraq, I looked at Memorial Day as a 3 day weekend, now I see it as a day that will honor these men who gave the ultimate sacrifice' - CSM Brunk Conley, 41 BCT, Task Force Phoenix V

Oh Sgt. Dub. those are very meaningful quotes I have never heard those before. God Bless the service men that have died and their families. Least not forget the service men and women that are their now and their families.

Beautiful, Sgt. Dub.... I felt the same way about the American Flag when my husband went to Iraq. Before the deployment, it was just a flag and after... it was a symbol of every single ghost lost during war time and every single person who's life has been saved.

Happy Memorial Day.

Anndi said...

My thanks to you, my tears for your fallen comrades.

Lest we forget.

Stay safe dear friend. I must say, I'm proud to call you that.

Desert Songbird said...

Amen, Dub, amen.

May you return home soon. Stay safe.

Happy Memorial Day! On behalf of my entire family I wanted to thank you for all you have given to this great country and it's people.

Your service, and the sacrifice of your fellow soldiers, is much appreciated. Never doubt it.

Thanks, to you and all your fellow soldiers. Happy Memorial Day and remember, your next holiday will be at home!

MrsDub said...

Very moving post. I echo the sentiment about the holiday. I never really paid attention to Memorial Day - it was a day off from work. I think everyday should be Memorial Day and we should NEVER forget the brave soldiers who have given the ultimate sacrifice. Hopefully by now you're packed and "leaving on a jet plane"!!!! Next holiday . . . 4th of July - things go boom!

Sanni said...

My special thanks to you for your service, my dear friend.

Stay safe.

Ron Simpson said...

I normally take Memorial Day and go visit the graves of my family that served and wander around the grave yard and read the names and service. I put flags up. This year it was the weekend of Jack's 3rd birthday, and it was the only time my wife and I could take a 4 day weekend to spend with the kids. So we went to Sea World. When you get back you have to go. Sea World is giving free tickets to Active Duty and their family. I recommend it highly.
