Memorial Day

Today’s holiday in the US isn’t about the sales, the picnics or the ball games, it’s about remembering those who have given their lives for our country. Memorial-DayI lived in Annapolis, home of the US Naval Academy, for several years, and attending chapel and listening to the words of the Navy Hymn, Eternal Father, Strong to Save, always gave me a good idea of all that our military has sacrificed for us.

  1. Thanks to all of the dedicated soldiers, past present and future!

    A beautiful hymn, appropriately remembered today, which always calls to my mind those somber days following the assassination of President Kennedy.

  3. Thank you for remembering our service members.

  4. I wish I had taken a picture of my 94 year old friend who served in the Navy in the Normandy invasion. He can still wear his Navy dress blues and wore his uniform to church yesterday!
