In the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland Remembrance Sunday is a day “to commemorate the contribution of British and Commonwealth military and civilian servicemen and women in the two World Wars and later conflicts”.
As a supporter of our British and Commonwealth friends I thank them for their support over the years and the sacrifice their sons and daughters have made to defend their countries and to fight for the cause of freedom and peace.
Remember those in uniform who are serving our country. They have been on the front lines of keeping us safe. Our military deserves great recognition for their sacrifice. We also must thank their families who they left behind so they could be on the field of battle.
The U.S. Army remembers June 6, 1944: The World War II D-Day invasion of Normandy, France.
Remembering real heroes who gave their lives to the defense of our country on one of its most important military missions in our history. These men came ashore in France against a barrage of gunfire to take the beach. We honor these people who liberated France and led to eventual victory in World War II.

Memorial Day 2014
To all those who have given their lives to the service of our country I say thank you. Young men and women from all walks of life sign up to join the service branch of their choice and prepare themselves to defend our country. It’s on this day we honor your sacrifice and remember the great things you did for us all.
Remember those in uniform who are serving us in our armed forces. This can be a lonely time of year for them and their families. God bless them and may they be safe.
A veteran is a person who made the choice to give themselves to the service of our country. They gave themselves body and soul to prepare to defend our the nation. Men and women from all walks of life for generations have made the sacrifice to secure the freedom of their family and friends. Putting on the uniform of ones nation is one of the greatest things one can do.
The veteran is a noble warrior who fights for peace wherever duty calls. They love their country, they will do anything for it. Their families sacrifice too by sending their loved one into harms way. When they return they have to heal and recover from the wounds both emotional and physical. Veterans are real heroes, real people all deserving of thanks from a grateful nation.
Memorial Day 2013 – Today we recognize real heroes who have served our country. Every man and woman who has worn the uniforms of our military have given their lives to preserve the freedoms we have today. So many gave the ultimate sacrifice with their lives. Others returned home and carry the burdens of war and conflict, they suffer sometimes in silence. Thank you to all those who made the choice to serve to defend and protect. I also extend the same regard to first responders who keep our streets safe too.
Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends" John 15:13
In honor of all men and women who have served our country. Thank you. Happy Memorial Day.
Everyone should be a fan of our men and women in uniform. These are real people who offer a real sacrifice. Freedom is not free and some pay a high price so that we can enjoy everything our country provides.
