On Memorial Day We Salute Our Heroes

By Craig Andresen on May 28, 2012 at 9:35 am

Some died in well known battles. Some in lesser known. Many died in places whose names are known to all. Others in places we have never heard of or on nameless plots of ground. Many were returned home. Many were not. Some were lost for all time and some remain…missing.

They died in faraway places. Germany, France, North Africa. They died in Vietnam, Korea, Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan. They died on Pacific islands and many more places too numerous to mention.

Some lost their lives on hills. San Juan, Hamburger, 881, Porkchop.

Some lost their lives on beaches. Omaha, Sword, Juno, Gold and others we may have never heard of and some we have.

They died in forests, cities, mountains, swamps, rice paddies, deserts and trenches too.

Many died here at home.

The Revolutionary War. The War of 1812. The Civil War.

Some died in the air. Some died at sea.

Some died in places that were never talked about on missions never officially sanctioned.

Many volunteered to go and many didn’t but, they went. All of them went.
