  • Memorial Day

    I'm a few days early, but lest I forget, I wanted to post something. I know we have quite a few military and military families here, and I am a part of the latter. As such, I thought I'd give us a place to remember the family and friends we've lost. If you don't want to post, please take a moment out of your day to think of those who have died in the service of their country.

    Have a safe long weekend, everyone.

    In memoriam

    Maj. Edmund William Berry, Marine Night Fighter Squadron 513, 1st Marine Air Wing

    KIA September 21, 1952

    While the list of family and friends names who died in service are too long to list....

    Please remember that while you are partaking in the Barbecue fun, tip your beer bottle to all Veterans. Please remember to thank a Vet for their service, it does make a huge difference.

      Just want to thank every veteran and current-serving member of the military. Also to honor all who have made the ultimate sacrifice in honor to their country, it's people, and their loved ones. No better man or woman.

      Good thread, thank you for posting.

        In Flanders Fields
        John McCrae, 1915.

        In Flanders fields the poppies blow
        Between the crosses, row on row
        That mark our place; and in the sky
        The larks, still bravely singing, fly
        Scarce heard amid the guns below.
        We are the Dead. Short days ago
        We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
        Loved and were loved, and now we lie
        In Flanders fields.

        Take up our quarrel with the foe:
        To you from failing hands we throw
        The torch; be yours to hold it high.
        If ye break faith with us who die
        We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
        In Flanders fields.

          I am ignorant of this occasion as we do not have it in the UK, but i would still to add to this.

          I have no family or friends of my own that i know of who died or were injured while in the line of duty so instead i would just like to add this poem written by Oscar C.A Child

          We may not know how fared your soul before
          Occasion came to try it by this test.
          Perchance, it used on lofty wings to soar;
          Again, it may have dwelt in lowly nest.

          We do not know if bygone knightly strain
          Impelled you then, or blood of humble clod
          Defied the dread adventure to attain
          The cross of honour or the peace of God.

          We see but this, that when the moment came
          You raised on high, then drained, the solemn cup --
          The grail of death; that, touched by valour's flame,
          The kindled spirit burned the body up.

          My heart goes out to all those members of Tactical Gamer who have lost friends or family through Combat

            That is very honorable and respectful. Thank you, brown. Means a lot to myself and I know many Americans that you have the good heart to contribute to honoring the fallen.

                I Stand Before You

                I stand before you all today
                But not one eye can see my way

                My time arrived, to leave this earth
                A fact so planned, to every birth

                It happened where I had to go
                My torch for life was so aglow

                I transferred while in uniform
                Protecting freedom, through a storm

                Should I resent I died for you
                Not on my life, red white and blue

                Please help my family through each day
                Tell all my friends, try not to stray

                And of the country I did love
                Do think of me, through God above

                Your memories, brought forth this day
                Send love to us, who could not stay

                        Special thanks to all of our TG veterans currently serving in the military.

                        I didn't join a squad once and this guy named Nardini took me into the back room and beat me with a sock of oranges.
