Memorial Day 2020

Submitted by ub on Mon, 05/25/2020 - 09:10

It is no coincidence that I began my day this morning by wearing the USA flag on my chest to pay tribute to all members of our military who made the ultimate sacrifice for our Democracy and the many freedoms we enjoy today.

Did you know that Memorial Day goes as far back as the American Civil War in the 1860s? Formerly known as Decoration Day, it occurs every year on the last Monday of the month of May and is the day of remembering the men and women who died while serving in the United States Armed Forces.

Today as well as each and every day we must never forget those who made the ultimate sacrifice to defend our freedoms and we thank them for their sacrifices and for keeping our nation safe. Hundreds of thousands of Americans sacrificed their lives for our freedom.

With parades and public events canceled, here's what we can do to celebrate #MemorialDay online, consider paying tribute watching the Intrepid ceremony will be streamed live here.

On this Memorial Day, every citizen of our always greatest nation should take time to salute and honor real American men and women who served in the military and died in service to this nation, whether they were drafted and served, not dodged serving by using a doctors note of faked bone spurs or bravely volunteered the armed services to join many other Americans heroes who are known as meme err of the greatest.

They are the real American heroes who fought for their nation, not ones who make idle threats like pulling GOP RNC out of North Carolina unless a Democratic governor caves in to allow mass gatherings start, or a fake president who fights and points his tiny fingers as distractions on those who served our nation honorably but may have been captured and tortured as a result. Not someone who lacks the sacred sacrifice of loss, is, empty, cowardly, and a really weak and dumb person.

Let us also keep in mind that we have had Republican and Democrat Presidents and members of Congress who have faithfully served our military and sacrificed to make this nation the greatest one on earth, despite any lies you have heard.

As a former GM 15/10 who served a real Republican President who was a decorated veteran, a Congressman, CIA Director, VP, and then elected President with a clear majority, on this holiday weekend I find myself wondering yet again how the GOP lost its way. It loved to lay claim to the military, yet it enables someone who is totally honorless. Where were the Grand Old Party leaders when he dissed one of their own?

I remember AJSoto III who earned a permanent grade SPEC5- E-5 in the Army. My late brother served The US Military in Vietnam. He was conservative and would understand that the goal is to protect our Democracy.  Thank you to all the service members and their families who sacrificed to protect us all. May we remember and honor them today and every single day. #MemorialDay

All US citizens should make sure they are registered to vote and do the right thing and keep an always great nation continues to shine as a Global Beacon of Liberty.

And keep in mind that... 

A REAL leader admits when he's wrong, takes responsibility, honors his obligations, doesn't abuse others, or constantly lie!
