Memorial Day - Remember Those Who Have Paid the Ultimate Sacrifice


As the mother of a soldier who returned from a tour of duty in Afghanistan, I am so grateful that he suffered no injuries and has had no lingering mental effects. He did however, lose one member of his unit while he was in country, so I dedicate this post and this weekend to SSG Edwin Rivera and all the other members of the Military who have paid the ultimate sacrifice in the service to our country.
God bless them for volunteering to protect the United States of America buy doing whatever was asked of them... and blessings and sympathy to their families for all they have sacrificed.
To them I dedicate the following songs.....

As you have your picnics and family fun at the beach or wherever, please remember those who serve our country now, in the past, and those who lost their lives doing so.

God bless our Military and God bless the USA.

Thanks for the beautiful tribute Lorrie.
Hubby spent the long weekend helping a fellow American Legion member & Army man recently back from several tours selling T-shirts & sweat shirts for our local American Legion post. All proceeds & donations go to our continuing saga to send care and smile boxes to all local in-country serving personnel. It was cold & threatened to rain every day, and did today.
I have my own tribute up HERE
hugs, Faythe @GrammyMouseTails
