2 Soldiers – Memorial Day 2012

By Craig Andresen on May 27, 2012 at 6:07 am

As we celebrate Memorial Day, we take time to remember and honor those who have served our nation. It’s not enough to honor them once or twice each year. We must honor them always.

Yesterday, We published an idea. I simple idea but one which we believe will have lasting honor for our fallen Veterans. We Call it…National Patriot Honors.

If you missed that article, please click here and let us know in the comment box if you will take National Patriot Honors to heart and build YOU National Patriot Honors team.

Sometimes, an image can say more than an entire article. Today, rather than an article, we will leave you with a specially created image we call “2 Soldiers” which we, at The National Patriot, believe captures what Memorial Day is about. Don’t forget to check out and comment on, National Patriot Honors and be safe this Memorial Day weekend.

    Beautiful, and so very inspiring. Please see “Our Guys” from Amador County CA, on my timeline, honoring them for their inspiration in giving their all so far from home for freedom on earth–inspiration which Consitutionalists carry in our spirit today in the face of tyranny now at home.

    Sacrifice is meaningless without remembrance.

    America’s collective consciousness demands that all citizens recall and be aware of the deaths of their fellow countrymen during wartime.

    Far too often, the nation as a whole takes for granted the freedoms all Americans enjoy. Those freedoms were paid for with the lives and the Blood of others few of us actually knew.

    That’s why they are all collectively remembered on one special day.

    This should be regarded as a civic obligation.

    For this is a national debt that can only be truly repaid by individual Americans.

    By honoring the nation’s war dead,we preserve their memory and thus their service and sacrifice in the memories of future generations.

    They came from all walks of life and regions of the country. But they all had one thing in common—love of and loyalty to country. This bond cemented ties between them in times of trials, allowing a diverse lot of Americans to achieve monumental ends.

    We remember the loss of loved ones, a sense of loss that takes group form. In essence, America is commemorating those who made the greatest sacrifice possible— giving one’s own life on behalf of others.

    Means of paying tribute vary.

    Pausing for a few moments of personal silence is available to everyone.

    Attending commemorative ceremonies is the most visible way of demonstrating remembrance: Placing flags at gravesites, marching in parades, sponsoring patriotic programs, dedicating memorials and wearing Buddy Poppies are examples.

    Whether done individually or collectively, it is the thought that counts.

    Personal as well as public acts of remembering are the ideal. Public displays of patriotism are essential if the notion of remembering war dead is to be instilled in youth.

    As America’s older war veterans fast disappear from society’s landscape, there are fewer and fewer standardbearers left to carry the torch of remembrance.

    Such traditions will live on only if there is a vibrant movement to which that torch can be passed.

    Now,more than in past years, the enduring relevance of Memorial Day should be clearly evident.With two wars under way, the public has no excuse not to remember.

    This much is owed to the more than 6,000 Americans who have died thus far in Afghanistan and Iraq.

    God and Country , Let’s never forget Freedom isn’t Free
