The ultimate sacrifice

May 20, 2012

It is a little over a week until Memorial day and I wish to do something even if only in a small way as a tribute to those who sacrificed there lives for everyone of us. In place of the Alaskan photo of the week, (top right column), I will be placing new photos, every couple days, in remembrance of those who died serving our country.

I hope that everyone takes a moment to remember those thousands of men and woman that have died so we may be free.

I also want to thank Jon, one of this blog readers, for sending me this article. With Memorial day fast approaching the email he sent showing what some people are doing to honor our fallen hero’s was moving, and the news about the aclu quite disturbing.

This picture was taken at the beach in Santa Barbara right next to the pier. There is a veterans group that started putting a cross and candle for every death in Iraq and Afghanistan .
The amazing thing is that they only do it on the weekends. They put up this graveyard and
take it down every weekend. Guys sleep in the sand next to it and keep watch over it at night so
nobody messes with it.



Every cross has the name, rank and D.O.B. and D.O.D. on it.

Very moving, very powerful??? so many young volunteers.. So many 30 to 40 year olds as well. 





Did you also know that the ACLU has filed a suit to have all military cross-shaped headstones removed, and that they filed another suit to end prayer from the military completely. Additionally Navy Chaplains can no longer mention ‘Jesus’ name in prayer thanks to the ACLU and our new administration.


It’s hard to think that so many gave there lives so that some people have a right to say and do things like this. It is hard but I have to understand freedom is not a one way street and every person has a right to speak his mind…

But I cannot get it out of my mind how it disrespects those that died giving us this freedom

    Pete,
    You are most welcome. That email came to me from another friend of mine & I just went back & it’s gone so I can’t give proper credit. I also sent your email with the Alex Jones link onto others.

    As far as the ACLU I have a different name for them but I won’t mention it here. They started out as an organization promoting Communism if I have my info. right so this is no surprise. Try to get them to support you on a conservative free speech or freedom of expression issue & their phoniness is exposed; they’re nowhere to be found. They are beyond disgusting & despicable. Typical intolerant, liberal group.

    Pete, thanks for your service & all others serving or who have served who visit your site.

    God bless you all on Memorial Day & always.
