    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

    Have a safe weekend and Monday everyone. :)

    Although I don't have any family in the service, I am grateful to all of the men and women in the armed forces who risk their lives for me each and every day. *gives a virtual salute*

    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

    2001Roger J. Robicheau
    Former SP5 US Army

    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

    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.

    Re: Memorial Day

    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.

    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.
