|Memorial Day: Our Day to Remember|
We are emphasizing the sacrifices of our soldiers in wars of liberation from tyranny by presenting images of the cemeteries in which our soldiers were buried in various parts of the world. You may be unaware that some of these exist.
|St Mhiel, France|
|Flanders Field, Belgium|
We clarified their status for him with the reminder that that the cemeteries in Ardennes, Flanders Field, and Henri-Chapelle were filled with the bodies of US soldiers who died so that he could live in a political environment in which he was free to express his hatred for their sacrifice.
We found a few sites in the Pacific of which we were unaware, but in retrospect, we're not surprised:
Australia, the Philippines [at Clark Field], Thailand in Kanchanaburi, and Indonesia.
In Burma, there are numerous unmarked graves which we are only now finding.
We found additional sites in areas we couldn't imagine; for example, Tunisia, Srpska [formerly in Yugoslavis], Warsaw-Poland, and not surprisingly, in Sicily.
|Not having saluted the US flag before ...|
Although we would like to keep this day apolitical, we must comment that it is embarrassing that the United States is led by a President whom we're not sure is even a US citizen, who is married to a woman who expressed her disdain for the US, and who was caught on video at Ground Zero expressing her consternation that she had to sit through a ceremony honoring the US flag ["All this for a 'flag'?"]
|"All this, just for a flag?"|
We're not sure how this embarrassing duo came into the White House, but we will not regret seeing them depart.
