Memorial Day

and Veterans Day are the only holidays I think are worthy of being commemorated. They honor and remember those who have served, and died in service to their country.

The saddest song in all of musical history is Taps…and the most heart-rending version comes from the movie “From Here to Eternity” – In honor of this day

  1. That is a beautiful version of Taps. It brings so up so much emotion. J watched the NASCAR race yesterday and they played Taps at the beginning and each car had the name of a fallen soldier on it. They told the stories of several of the soldiers and it was heartbreaking. One in particular was US Marine Corporal Jason Dunham who at 22 sacrificed his life by covering a grenade with his helmet to save his unit. I can’t even imagine being faced with this decision and making that same one. These acts of bravery by our military deserve to be honored and heard!

    1. More amazing is that there probably is not a lot of thought in these acts of bravery, just the situation and the reaction, making it even more amazing.
