A time to remember..

To save your world you asked this man to die:
Would this man, could he see you now, ask why?
- Epitaph for the Unknown Soldier, by W. H. Auden-

Preparing for Memorial Day Celebration at Zachary Taylor Cemetery Louisville, KY

Only Two Defining Forces Have Ever Died For You: Jesus The Christ And Your American Soldier – Jesus Died For Your Soul And The Soldier Died For Your Freedom.

Zachary Taylor Cemetery - Louisville, KY

For what these brave American heroes did to secure our freedom, it is incumbent upon each us to strive everyday to be worthy of their sacrifice.


  1. Thank you, Derek...couldn't have said it better myself..I'm retired Navy myself..was my duty and my pleasure to serve...I always wonder whether Obama or Biden could say the same...guess not...they or at least the Bamster thinks he's entitled...and our obligation is to show him the door come November...

    1. Anon - Thanks for dropping by. I was at the cemetery this morning with my son's Boy Scout Troop putting the flags up for Monday's Memorial service. Had tears in my eyes by the time I left just looking at the sea of white headstones and realizing how lucky we all are to live in this great country. Amen to November!

      Thank you for your service as well my friend.
