    Lest we forget that this day started not as a “holiday” but as a day of somber remembrance, today’s Memorial Day post is dedicated to our country’s fallen heroes; the 1.4 million men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice in wars waged across centuries in order to preserve the principles of freedom and liberty.So let us pause a moment and bow our heads in their memory as we reflect what a different world we would live in, were it not for their sacrifice.Flanders Fields the poppies blowBetween the crosses row on row,That mark our place; and in the skyThe...

    The U.S. Army psychiatrist who slaughtered 13 people on a Texas military base could face the death penalty as officials wrangle over his fate, it has emerged. Major Nadal Hasan was said to have cried out 'Allahu akbar!' before he opened fire on troops and civilians, killing 13 and injuring 32 at Fort Hood in 2009. His fate now lies in the hands of brigade commander Col. Morgan Lamb, who is due to release a report in which he is expected to recommend a court martial.

FORT HOOD (November 5, 2010)—Few physical reminders remain of the shooting rampage a year ago at Fort Hood’s Soldier Readiness Center that left 12 soldiers and a civilian dead and dozens of others injured, but separate ceremonies Friday on post will pay tribute to the victims and will honor 54 soldiers and civilians whose actions went beyond the call of...

We know it cost him his life, along with 342 other New York firefighters and paramedics at the World Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001. Siller was off duty and on his way to play golf, but when he heard about planes hitting the towers he drove from Brooklyn toward Manhattan.

The Tour of Duty run officially began with a flag ceremony at 8:46 a.m. - the time when the first plane struck New York's twin towers in 2001. Several New York firefighters were running, including James Dowdell. His father, firefighter Kevin Dowdell, was among more than 400 emergency workers killed while responding to the attack.

    Early next month military attorneys will meet for a preliminary hearing into whether the 40-year-old Muslim who became an Army psychiatrist should be court-martialed and perhaps sentenced to die for the worst terrorist assault in this country since the Sept. 11, 2001, airplane attacks. The Senate Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee has taken the unusual step of issuing subpoenas demanding the records as part of its investigation into the Nov. 5 shooting spree. What they want to know, said committee chairman Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.), is "why was he not stopped before he took 13 American lives, and how can...

    While others might not want to say it, I will. The Pentagon’s whitewashing of the Islamic factor in the Fort Hood shooting, was just pathetic, and their policy that some form “moderate” Islam is coming to the rescue is a failure. It is the same policy that the UK is pursuing, and it does not work there either. Thankfully over a dozen Republicans are challenging the Pentagon, and their relationship with their so called “moderate” Muslim advisors. This article shows us just how little research the Pentagon has actually done on their own on Islam. They just want to be...

Bart Stupak, a Democrat whose northern Michigan district has lost close to 20 people in fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan, said he sponsored the bill after unsuccessfully trying to persuade President George W. Bush to issue an executive order on the issue. The bill passed 408-4 and now goes to the Senate, where Armed Services Committee Chairman Carl Levin, D-Mich., and Sen. Debbie Stabenow, D-Mich., have introduced parallel legislation. The measure would amend federal law...

The act "will protect the sanctity of all 122 of our national cemeteries as shrines to their gallant dead," said Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist, R-Tennessee.

She came home yesterday bubbling about a new holiday art project: The Thankful Tree.

    I've watched C-BS news ever since the story broke, mostly to note who is advertising on it. However I noticed that every evening they do a "tribute to the fallen" I can't help but think that this is anything but a tribute. When people die in a cause, doing what you can to tear down that cause is not honoring their memory. With them "honoring" these dead soldiers, unspoken is the fact that were they not in Iraq, none of this would have happened. This is of course the true purpose of going into their past, in telling us of...
