As we endure our little hardships, it is sometimes good to put it into a better perspective.   Take the time out of your day to watch 5 minutes of true heroes...the people that put their lives and families on the line so that we can continue to have the lives and lifestyles we enjoy.

Generations of Valor
  
 
The occasion of this photograph was a
Veterans Day Commemoration at Dallas City Hall
 on 11 November 2004. The veteran pictured
 is Houston James, a survivor of the Japanese
 attack on Pearl Harbor in December 1941, and
the Marine is Staff Sgt. Mark Graunke Jr., a
member of an ordnance-disposal team who
 lost his left hand, one leg, and an eye while
 defusing a bomb in Iraq in July 2003.


 


 

 

 

 


 

 

This is a real picture, taken in Iraq on 9 September 2003
 by the Baker Company, with the 7th Marines,
1st Battalion, to honor the victims of the
September 11
terrorist attacks on the U.S. According to
 the Rock Hill, South Carolina, Herald:

Helmets atop rifles honored the day so many died.
Four U.S. Marines in Iraq held Old Glory a few feet
off the desert sand. Dozens of others stood around
them, spelling out a special message. The unit assembled
Tuesday in a formation of husbands and sons and helmets
and weapons that spelled out, "9-11: We Remember."

Andrew Schoenmaker, 25, is a graduate of the U.S.
Naval Academy and an executive officer of Baker
Company, with the 7th Marines, 1st Battalion.

Lt. Schoenmaker and his commanding officer bandied
about the idea for a picture to send home to the United
States signifying that the unit is still in Iraq, but the
 pose ended up honoring the Sept. 11, 2001, victims.

"It is in remembrance of those that gave the
ultimate sacrifice on September 11, and
 the reason that no matter how long we
are here, we will continue to push and never forget why
we serve," Andrew wrote in an e-mail to his father.

THE FINAL INSPECTION



The soldier stood and faced God,
Which must always come to pass.
He hoped his shoes were shining,
Just as brightly as his brass.

"Step forward now, you soldier,
How shall I deal with you?
Have you always turned the other cheek?
To My Church have you been true?"

The soldier squared his shoulders and said,
"No, Lord, I guess I ain't.
Because those of us who carry guns,
Can't always be a saint.


I've had to work most Sundays,
And at times my talk was tough.
And sometimes I've been violent,
Because the world is awfully rough.

But, I never took a penny,
That wasn't mine to keep...
Though I worked a lot of overtime,
When the bills got just too steep.

And I never passed a cry for help,
Though at times I shook with fear.
And sometimes, God, forgive me,
I've wept unmanly tears.

I know I don't deserve a place,
Among the people here.
They never wanted me around,
Except to calm their fears.

If you've a place for me here, Lord,
It needn't be so grand.
I never expected or had too much,
But if you don't, I'll understand.

There was a silence all around the throne,
Where the saints had often trod.
As the soldier waited quietly,
For the judgment of his God.

"Step forward now, you soldier,
You've borne your burdens well.
Walk peacefully on Heaven's streets,
You've done your time in Hell."

Arlington at Christmas


 
Rest easy, sleep well my brothers.

Know the line has held, your job is done.

Rest easy, sleep well.

Others have taken up where you fell, the line has held

Peace, peace, and farewell...




 

     These wreaths -- some 5,000 -- are donated by the Worcester Wreath Co. Of Harrington, Maine. The owner, Merrill Worcester, not only provides the wreaths, but covers the trucking expense as well. He's done this since 1992. A wonderful guy.
     Also, most years, groups of Maine school kids combine an educational trip to DC with this event to help out. Making this even more remarkable is the fact that Harrington is in one the poorest parts of the state.

From what you can see of the uniforms, this is a WWI era photo. 
There is no date on the picture.  But what a gift from our grandfathers...
