"MAY WE NEVER FORGET THOSE WHO SACRIFICED ALL FOR OUR FREEDOMS"

 

MEMORIAL DAY IS THE HOLIDAY THAT MAKES OTHER HOLIDAYS POSSIBLE!

 

MEMORIAL DAY - ARLINGTON

(Written and Sung by Trace Atkins)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wOih0MHNmZU



(From David Parkhill, Teacher at Odessa High School 1956-1964)

"No matter who you are or what you are today, always remember that millions of men and women fought and died so that you may have the opportunity to be free to make your life choices.

Today our Nation faces one of the greatest challenges to those freedoms. We have allowed people and ridiculous legislation to destroy 200+ years of freedom under the Constitution. It is time to stand up and defend our Great Nation for if you fail to do so then those millions will have died for nothing and we will become a Nation of slaves once more."

 

David T. Parkhill

Gunnery Sgt.                 

USMC Combat Veteran

 



 
 
 
 
 
 
THANKS TO OUR AMERICAN WARRIORS
 
From the colonist, who rebelled,
to the soldier of today,
My thanks, be to you,
I know not what else to say.

Since the words I do not have,
to give the tribute that is due,
So a simple heartfelt thanks,
sincerely I give to you.

Thanks to our American heroes,
whose devotion is second to none,
Whose courage and braveness alone
caused many battles to be won.

We have beaten the forces of evil
and carried our flag far and wide,
Because of our American Warriors,
our hearts are filled with pride,

Only because of you and the price
you willingly did pay,
Only because of you,
Old Glory still flies today!
