    I'd like to remember ALL of the brave souls who gave their lives defending this nation.

    I have no direct remembrances since, thankfully, my brothers and father and other close family members made it through their deployments alive, though, 'changed'.

    right now in America all our freedoms are under fire, the freedoms we fought for and died for to keep.
    even though barry wont admit it, and its not PC to speak of it, the biggest threat the world now faces is the Muslim extremists. they make the Nazis look like amateurs

    The Submariners of WWII were a very brave lot.......Their German counterparts in U-boats suffered a 75% death rate...........

    I've stood on that very spot, albeit under vastly different circumstances.

    Oh my God. You gave me goose bumps when I saw that picture and thinking of you and jack there and you brought tears to my eyes. Don't you have anyone you can remember here?

    This was the second or third take..........The first flag was considered too small, And couldn't be seen by the Marines landing on the beach........
    So they went and got a bigger flag.........And they were under fire both times......'Murica!!!!!!!

    Fortunately, all members of my family who served in wartime returned home to us. I had one uncle who was injured pretty significantly, but none who made the ultimate sacrifice that we remember on this weekend.

    Don't know about amateurs. They killed several millions and brutally tortured many more. ISIS does horrific stuff but the sheer numbers pale.
