You may post my poem if you wish to do so:
In honor of the World War Two Vets
and their monument Fallen heroes
now lie beneath the soil of many a foreign land
where rows of markers make their stand.
A monument erected to bring their memories more close at hand.
Many a buddy died to save a Vet's tomorrow.
Now he lives with such great sorrow.
A Vet remembers when pals stood at his side.
He carries a vision of them that he can never hide.
The Hell, the horror that they all faced.
He knows within his heart they will not be forgotten or disgraced..
Though old and weathered, the memories that monument holds
brings tears to his eyes as he slips through the years
as thoughts of his comrades bring their images ever so near.

*``HAPPY 4TH OF JULY``*

A SPECIAL REQUEST FROM MJFB/1954 TO POST `A WARRIOR'S PRAYER`
FOR 4TH OF JULY` SALUTES TO ALL VETERANS AND CURRENT WARRIORS
ON REMEMBRANCE DAY OF `FOURTH OF JULY `1776`
(WRITTEN BY: PP POET:JERRY BROWN)

*~`A WARRIORS PRAYER`~*
(with permission of author: `Jerry Brown`)

Oh heavenly father, I am a warrior that comes to you on bended knee
My heart is filled with fear and anguish. For at sunrise on the morrow
I will be engaged in a great battle, with an enemy I know naught of.
Lord, let your hands encompass me as the armor of my body. Your love and
Mercy be the helmet and plume upon my head, your kindness ____ my shield.
May my lance fly as true as an eagle's flight, my arrows aim as true as David's Sling.
My sword be firm and strong in my hand. Let me be as wise as Solomon
So my orders and judgments cause no harm to my comrades around me.
If I should fall in battle lord, take my soul hurriedly, let it not feel the pain of a
Warriors' death. Let me feel the warmth and solitude of my father's kingdom.
If I am victorious____ replace the fear and anguish in my heart, with kindness
And mercy. If my enemy is wounded, let me clean and dress his wounds so he
Will not be in pain. If he be thirsty, let him slake his thirst from my canteen.
Yet above all lord, let me be the messenger, of the living water of your word.
Let his soul be saved, his sins forgiven, so he will know that you are the one
And only true living God.

I ask these things to be done, in the name of my beautiful savior,
whom I love Dearly.

Amen amen
A Warrior's Prayer

Flag Day celebrates the adoption of the U.S. flag on this day in 1777 and flies with
pride for Americans across the country.

To veterans it stands for everything that those veterans before us, those veterans
that came after us, stood for, fought for and died for. It stands for our country
and all the things it goes through good and bad but it's still the one never changing
symbol of our country.

S&S Proudly Salutes Her Latest Of Patriotic Poems
"Tomb Of The Unknown Soldier"
Saluting all Veterans
In Honor Of Her Beloved Husband..USA Veteran..Ish Covington..









 




Tomb of the Unknown Soldier

 
"Who's this?" she asked holding it up
For her Great-Gran to see.
The old woman took the picture
From the child propped on her knee.
 
And squinting age worn, feeble eyes,
She held it to the light.
The image on the photograph
Had faded like her sight.
 
But she did recognize her husband
Of over sixty years.
Somehow the slightest glimpse of him
Could still extract her tears.
 
She hugged the child and brushed them off
With one sweep of her hand
"Why, that's your Great Granddaddy, Miss,
As a much younger man."
 
"My Poppy's in a uniform," the girl  
Observed and said.
"That's when he was a soldier boy
A fore that he was dead?"
 
"Yes, Missy," she replied, "a fore
And long ago.
Her memory traveled back through time…
Through yesteryear's window.
 
Her Bob had been a soldier boy…
A soldier brave and bold.
She still recalled those war waged months
And sad stories he had told.
 
But in this picture he was guard
Over a famous tomb…
The unknown soldier, she recalled…
 The duty of her groom.
 
He'd shared his deepest thoughts about
The one they'd laid to rest
 In the white marble sarcophagus
And wondered more or less…
 
Where was he from? Who was this guy
With no name on his stone?
He surely was some mother's son…
How sad to be unknown!
 
"But, then," he'd told her tenderly…
His faith making the claim…
"They know who he is in Heaven, hon..
God knows every soldier's name."

We know that we have passed from death to life,
 because we love our brothers. Anyone who does
 not love remains in death.

Our Thanks To `Terry Sasek` `AlwaysAWarrior` who has generously offered this video`
BEFORE THEY GO` to be viewed on our Home Page, saluting all Veterans, in tribute
to their dedicated service for freedom!
Before They Go` describes some very sobering facts that the Vietnam Veterans are facing
within the next five years, and how the group who put together this promo-video hopes
to aid all the remaining veterans still alive yet, as we are losing these veterans at
a rate of 16 per hour from diseases that are associated with Agent Orange.

`Before They Go!
Before they fade into the fabric of History,
We will give them the `tribute` they deservs!
Thank-you and please send it on to others!

This is a Different Version from YouTube
to pay tribute To Our Vietnam Veterans
as the other version of `Before They Go`
keeps being removed by the user.

VJ Day, Honolulu Hawaii, August 14, 1945 from Richard Sullivan on Vimeo.

65 Years Ago my Dad shot
this film along Kalakaua Ave. in Waikiki capturing spontaneous celebrations that broke
out upon first hearing news of the Japanese surrender. Kodachrome 16mm film: God Bless Kodachrome, right? I was able to find an outfit (mymovietransfer.com) to do a much
superior scan of this footage to what I had previously posted, so I re-did this film
and replaced the older version There are more still images from this amazing day,
in color, at www.discoveringhawaii.com



The above video clip is how our country once celebrated defeat of those who chose
to attack us. There was no groveling or apologies for defending our safety and honor.
I would also argue that a celebration of victory, for a well fought campaign, resulted
in a universal respect for our nation. Sadly today our own leaders denigrate the
volunteer military for doing their duty in cleaning up the failed policy and politics
of those same elected leaders. With all due respect to all our veterans, I offer the following tribute in honor of the upcoming Memorial Day weekend. Also, Remember
November! A time to again honor our veterans AND to remove all embarrassing and
traitorous politicians from office.

SCROLL DOWN

VJ Day in Honolulu

If you are at least 65 I am Sure,

You all saw the Sailor kissing on Broadway in New York ,

but how many have seen this? And check out the color fidelity -

Nothing will ever compare with Kodachrome film.

and click on arrow -- it has sound.
