Veterans Day 2019 #veteransday

Veterans Day in the United States is intended to honor and thank all military personnel who served the United States in all wars, particularly living veterans. It is marked by parades and church services and in many places the American flag is hung at half mast.

Remembrance Day 2019, Lest We Forget #remembranceday

Remembrance Day is a memorial day observed in Commonwealth member states since the end of the First World War to remember the members of their armed forces who have died in the line of duty. Thanks for your service and sacrifices.

Remembering D-Day, 75 Years Ago


On June 6, 1944, more than 160,000 Allied troops landed along a 50-mile stretch of heavily-fortified French coastline, to fight Nazi Germany on the beaches of Normandy, France. Many lost their lives this day but those who survived went on liberate Europe and to help win World War II.

Willing To Serve

The military of the United States is a voluntary force. People willingly enlist to serve and defend. Our service people come from all walks of life which in my view makes it better. Some of these folks are from the LGBTQ community and when they join they willingly give their service and their lives to the protection of people who seek to make their lives very difficult and will discriminate against them for living their truth.

Transgender service people should have the right to serve. They just want the same right to life, liberty and happiness guaranteed to all citizens of the United States. It matters not to me a persons orientation or gender because they are willing to do what I didn’t and what some in leadership in this country didn’t and that is to put on a uniform of their country and to offer all they have so that others might be free.

Thanks to all who served from every walk of life. Past, present, future.

Memorial Day 2018 In The USA #memorialday

US-MEMORIAL-DAY-CEMETERY-FLAGS

Memorial Day or Decoration Day is a federal holiday in the United States for remembering the people who died while serving in the country’s armed forces. On this day remember the ultimate sacrifice many have made to serve others and to advance the right to life, liberty and happiness for everyone.

LGBTQ Service

I love and support my LGBTQ friends and I believe they should have the right to live and serve as citizens as well as the right to life, liberty and happiness afforded to all who call this country home.

Transgender people should not be denied the opportunity to serve in the military. They have much to offer and we need people of all walks of life to serve and protect. America is the land of freedom and opportunity so this sounds like something contrary to what makes this country special.

Today in the United States we remember those who have given their lives in the defense of this country. Many who have gone into battle did not come home. Giving ones life is the ultimate sacrifice. Those who wear the uniform of their country are to be respected and honored because they are going into harms way. Many families mourn those who died on the battlefield and may they be comforted. May their loved ones and friends be remembered on this and every day.
