My Memorial Day is Special

I can’t help but to think of the hundreds of thousand of Americans who gave their precious lives so we would have the free nation. Today those who have given this nation zero have eagerly relinquished the hard won freedom in favor of a nanny police state. That is a crying shame.

I was required to answer my country’s military draft and did so paying my price as an American. I can’t help but feel some guilt for being the only member of a 200 man Light Weapons Infantry Company to be sent to Germany. I proudly served as a medical corpsman during the Cold War. It was a lesser sacrifice but two years of my young life seemed like a lot back then.

We must remember our brave veterans by fighting any curbs on our freedoms by enemies of our Bill of Rights. Unfortunately these foes are inside our government and Whitehouse. This fight will take all the courage we can muster.
