Default To Those Who Have Served America;

As another Memorial Day comes to a close I think of my father and millions more like him who served this country and it's descendants such as myself so unselfishly. From Grandfather Knights time in the Argonne Forrest Battle in 1918 to Dad's landing on the Normandy Coast in June 1944 my ancestors have helped to ensure my personal freedom and rights I enjoy as an American citizen.

I recognize all who have served my country when I say this;


Thank You For Keeping Me Safe.

Absolutely beautiful,

I have many CD's produced by her father Andre'. After 9-11 He composed a song with accompanying orchestra to honor the ten thousand Unites States soldiers who gave their lives to liberate Holland, and that piece is also beautiful. The conductor Andre' Reiu is Dutch and a great supporter of the USA. When I first heard his tribute to the fallen after 9-11 it brought a tear to the eye.

If I am not mistaken taps was originally composed during the Civil War. The more artistic offereing in this video albeit not true to the U.S. Military version is indeed a friendly gesture from a beneficiary of our European Campaign of the 1940's. I would accept it as it is, a gesture of friendship from abroad.

Ard

I'd like to add my gratitude as well.

On Memorial Day, I remember my friend Ben Britt- one of the finest human beings I've ever known. Once my daughter's of age, I'll be steering her towards someone like Ben.
