Default Memorial Weekend....

To all who have served, will serve and are serving now...

It is the
VETERAN,
Not the preacher,
Who has given us freedom of religion.

It is
The VETERAN,
Not the reporter,
Who has given us freedom of the press.

It is
The VETERAN,
Not the poet,
Who has given us freedom of speech.

It is
The VETERAN,
Not the campus organizer,
Who has given us freedom to assemble.


It is
The VETERAN,
Not the lawyer,
Who has given us the right to a fair trial.


It is
The VETERAN,
Not the politician,
Who has given us the right to vote.


It is the
VETERAN who
Salutes the Flag,


It is
The
VETERAN
Who serves
Under the Flag,

I tip my hat and heart to you - along with a whole country....

A United people,

All of us owe all of you..

The statistics are overwhelming defending what we are - by so few - or so many? I think it is many...

- Over 25,000 deaths in the Revolutionary War
- Over 625,000 deaths in our American Civil War
- Over 405,399 combat deaths in Work War II
- Over 116,516 deaths in World War I
- Over 58,209 deaths in the Vietnam War
- Over 36,516 deaths in the Korean War
- Almost 6,000 deaths in the current War on Terror

So, for this year's Memorial Day, I ask that go out and spend time in memory
of a fallen veteran or thank the family of a fallen veteran.

Simply - thank you, to all the vets. Those alive and those lost...

None of you are forgotten.

Ever...

John

The words written here , are written in stone as you enter louisiana war veterans home. this monument is not paid for or owned by the goverment or the state. It was paid for from donations from the veterans or their families and the words on it chosen by them. Regards Padre
