    The annual National Memorial Day Concert from the lawn of the Capitol- one of the few good things on PBS. A must watch!! Keep the kleenex handy. I was fortunate enough to attend this concert in 1998 and it was a life changing experience.

    Clifford Rountree, Kenny Barker and Victor Renza were three American soldiers in Vietnam whose platoon was ambushed in May 1967. Twenty-two of their comrades were killed. John Blackstone reports on how that battle shaped the lives of the survivors, and how some of them spent the anniversary of that battle, fifty years later.

        The FReeper Canteen Observes ------------------------Memorial Day 2017 ------------------------     HistoryMemorial Day, originally called Decoration Day, is a day of remembrance for those who have died in our nation's service. There are many stories as to its actual beginnings, with over two dozen cities and towns laying claim to being the birthplace of Memorial Day. There is also evidence that organized women's groups in the South were decorating graves before the end of the Civil War: a hymn published in 1867, "Kneel Where Our Loves are Sleeping" by Nella L. Sweet (see below) carried the dedication "To...

    National Review ^ | May 27, 2017 | Arthur Herman
    Unlike many of today's 'anti-war' duds, these seven works honor Americans who served in war. Memorial Day is of course when we remember those who died serving their country in our armed services. There was a time when America's movie industry took pride in honoring American servicemen, both the living and the dead; there are a few actors and directors in Hollywood who still do. But since movies about Americans at war have largely gone in the opposite direction since Vietnam, this weekend it might be worthwhile going back to see seven movies that deal with war in an honest...

    Townhall.com ^ | May 26, 2017 | Dan Celia
    A few months back, I wrote an article for Townhall.com about the Veterans Administration. In light of Memorial Day, I thought it would be a great idea to revisit the VA and some of the developments that have transpired since then. At first, I was not a fan of Secretary David Shulkin. One of three Trump appointees that I questioned, I felt he had made it a point to be somewhat of a career politician. I believed what we needed in that position was not an Obama-holdover appointee, but a businessman who specialized in turning around organizations. I have to...

    (Editors Note, this commentary was co-authored with Matthew Howe) On November 19, 1863, President Abraham Lincoln delivered one of our Nation’s greatest speeches, the Gettysburg Address. The purpose was to dedicate the Soldier’s National Cemetery at Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, the site of a battle fought that year in July that turned the tide of the Civil War. President Lincoln was not the primary speaker for the event, but his words are everlasting. His closing words of a speech that was less than 270 words are very appropriate for today. This is what President Lincoln said, “It is rather for us to...

    Doodle means to scribble absentmindedly. But Google Doodles are intentional iconography that attempt to redraw America's great history. They elevate peripheral figures to iconic status and relegate religious holidays to amorphous greetings. Google leverages its ubiquitous platform to doodle about holidays, anniversaries and famous people. But yesterday was Memorial Day, previously called Decoration Day – a day to remember the veterans who made the ultimate sacrifice so we could live free as a nation, so that a few days earlier President Barack Hussein Obama (D) could visit Hiroshima, the Japanese city bombed by the U.S. that finally forced Japan's surrender,...

  • Hayward Lectures Obama on the “War Crimes of Imperial Japan”

    06/01/2016 1:26:30 AM PDT · by hamilton_1800 · 18 replies
    President Obama’s Memorial Day trip to Japan to the World War II site of Hiroshima to presumably apologize for dropping the atom bomb has ignited furious criticism of the president. Among those critics is Breitbart’s John Hayward, who documents an extensive historical context for the education of those who have only had the opportunity to read progressive-approved textbooks, including apparently the President of the United States. Why is this important? Because the dropping of the atom bomb didn’t happen in a vacuum – it was used as a means to end a brutal war started by Imperial Japan. " 1)...

    The bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki was the RESULT of what happens to a nation bent on “domination or conquest” As Barack Obama finishes out the last eight months of his second term as President, he has started working through his bucket list of things to do before he leaves office. This cringe-worthy endeavor has gotten off to a treason-worthy start with his trip to Vietnam highlighted by a photo op with a picture of Ho Chi Minh behind him. And I can’t think why Obama would have made his trip to Hiroshima except to present his warped vision of...

    Jihad Watch ^ | May 30, 2016 | Robert Spencer
    No surprise. CAIR is an unindicted co-conspirator in a Hamas terror funding case — so named by the Justice Department. CAIR officials have repeatedly refused to denounce Hamas and Hizballah as terrorist groups. Several former CAIR officials have been convicted of various crimes related to jihad terror. CAIR’s cofounder and longtime Board chairman (Omar Ahmad), as well as its chief spokesman (Ibrahim Hooper), have made Islamic supremacist statements. (Ahmad denies this, but the original reporter stands by her story.) A California chapter distributed a poster telling Muslims not to talk to the FBI, and a Florida chapter distributed pamphlets with...

    A fellow Democrat posted a snapshot of Sen. (I-VT) apparently nodding off during a Memorial Day ceremony in the Presidio military cemetery in San Francisco on Monday. Zoe Dunning, a gay rights activist, veteran, supporter, and high-ranking member of the San Francisco Democratic Party, posted the photograph to Facebook, with the following message: Attending the Memorial Day Ceremony honoring the over 1 million Americans who have lost their lives serving our country, and watching fall asleep during it. There is nothing I can really add here. #imwithher

    A man in Henderson, Kentucky has been arrested, accused of damaging with a vehicle more than 150 crosses that were part of a Memorial Day display commemorating those serving in the military. Police said about 160 crosses were knocked down, and 20 were destroyed on Saturday, the Gleaner reported. They were part of a park display of 5,000 crosses that included the names of Henderson residents who have served in the military. Anthony Burrus, 27, was arrested after his vehicle was found parked with pieces of a cross in its tires. Burrus denied responsibility for the damage but said he...

Marc Golczynski, was shot and killed while on patrol during his second tour in Iraq. This photo is all over the internet and is heartbreaking because of the 8 year old's strength in holding back tears during a formal ceremony honoring his father who is no longer with him.

    On 12 May 1962, Gen. Douglas MacArthur addressed the cadets at the U.S. Military Academy, delivering his farewell speech, "Duty, Honor and Country." He described the legions of uniformed American Patriots as follows: "Their story is known to all of you. It is the story of the American man at arms. My estimate of him was formed on the battlefields many, many years ago and has never changed. I regarded him then, as I regard him now, as one of the world's noblest figures -- not only as one of the finest military characters, but also as one of the...

    In Memory of a Fallen Comrade I write this in memory of one we left behind, MSG William B. Hunt, U.S. Army Special Forces, MIA, November 5, 1966. It is an account of the sacrifice he made to his country, to his comrades, and to the Vietnamese people. In November 1966, SSG Hunt and I served together at Special Forces ODA Camps under Detachment B-32, 5th Special Forces Group, Tay Ninh Province, in the Republic of Vietnam. Hunt was with ODA-322 at Camp Suoi DA, and I was assigned to ODA-323 at Camp Trai Bi. Our camps were about 30...

    The people of United States, a nation struggling to regain a sense of optimism and confidence, have, over many years, been told by a preponderance of the elites in American society that their country is one of an ignoble nature and history. That “American Exceptionalism” is a myth that has precipitated the plunder of the planet and the exploitation of mankind throughout the world. This is a nation whose alleged sins have been portrayed as so egregious that the current president, whose primary campaign promise was to “fundamentally transform America,” feels duty bound to go around the world on bended...
