Angel Day

On this your angel day I want you to know that you are a blessing to a countless number of people past, present, and future. And through your selfless service and courageous deeds your efforts have and will have an influence on many generations. And with all the good you did and the ultimate sacrifice you paid you truly are OUR HERO and we thank God that you lived.

FREEDOM
by Father Denis Edward O'Brien, USMC

It is the soldier, not the reporter
Who has given us the freedom of the press.

It is the soldier, not the poet,
Who has given us Freedom of speech.

It is the soldier, not the campus organizer
Who has given us the Freedom to demonstrate

It is the soldier, who serves beneath the Flag,
Who salutes the Flag,

Whose coffin is draped by the Flag,
Who allows the protestor to burn the Flag,

It is the soldier, not the politician,
Who has given his blood, his body, his life,
Who has given us these FREEDOMS!

Never Be Forgotten

Dear Soldier,
I am doing a project in a couple of my classes and we have to write remembrances for as many Vietnam Veterans as we want. I am 17 years old. You were close to my age when you went to Vietnam War and gave your Supreme Sacrifice. You fought, gave your all, and died for what you believed in, and I sit here and wonder would I have the courage to do what you had to do. I know I would be scared as I’m sure you were. I just want to let you know that you will never be forgotten.

God Bless You,
Amanda Kinney
