Thanks, Empress-N!  This is wonderful!  My heartfelt thanks and gratitude

goes to all who gave of themselves to serve our country at home and

abroad.  My husband, father, many relatives and friends served in the armed

forces.  A few of my friends never came home.  A relative suffers permanent

anguish from the war.  We must, also, remember the families that support our

service people during their tour of duty and when they come home!  Our

government must provide much better care for our returning soldiers and

address all of their needs!!!

 

US Flag  God Bless America!!!

        Great numbers for the Great troops Empress-N, thought you might enjoy this piece about the soldier which I believe is a take originally attributed to ~Sir Winston Churchill

        EddessaKnight Note

        ~

        It is the Soldier, not the minister
        Who has given us freedom of
        religion.
        It is the Soldier, not the reporter
        Who has given us freedom of the press.
        It is the Soldier, not the poet
        Who has given us freedom of speech.
        It is the Soldier, not the campus organizer
        Who has given us freedom to protest.
        It is the Soldier, not the lawyer
        Who has given us the right to a fair trial.
        It is the Soldier, not the politician
        Who has given us the right to vote.
        It is the Soldier who salutes the flag,
        Who serves beneath the flag,
        And whose coffin is draped by the flag,
        Who allows the protester to burn the flag.

        THE FINAL INSPECTION

        The Soldier stood and faced God,
        Which must always come to
        pass.
        He hoped his shoes were
        shining,
        Just as brightly as his
        brass..

        'Step forward now, Soldier
        ,
        How shall I deal with
        you?
        Have you always turned the
        other cheek?
        To My Church have you been
        true?'

        The soldier squared his
        shoulders and said,
        'No, Lord, I guess I have
        not.
        Because those of us who
        carry guns,
        Can't always be a
        saint.

        I've had to work most
        Sundays,
        And at times my talk was
        tough.
        And sometimes I've been
        violent,
        Because the world is awfully
        rough.

        But, I never took a
        penny,
        That wasn't mine to
        keep...
        Though I worked a lot of
        overtime,
        When the bills got just too
        steep.

        And I never passed a cry for
        help,
        Though at times I shook with
        fear..
        And sometimes, God, forgive
        me,
        I've wept unmanly
        tears.

        I know I don't deserve a
        place,
        Among the people
        here.
        They never wanted me
        around,
        Except to calm their
        fears.

        If you've a place for me
        here, Lord,
        It needn't be so
        grand.
        I never expected or had too
        much,
        But if you don't, I'll
        understand.

        There was a silence all
        around the throne,
        Where the saints had often
        trod.
        As the Soldier waited
        quietly,
        For the judgment of his
        God.

        'Step forward now, you
        Soldier,
        You've borne your burdens
        well.
        Walk peacefully on Heaven's
        streets,
        You've done your time in
        Hell.'

            In the South

            In Charleston, South Carolina in 1865, freedmen (freed enslaved Africans) celebrated at the Washington Race Course, today the location of Hampton Park. The site had been used as a temporary Confederate prison camp for captured Union soldiers in 1865, as well as a mass grave for Union soldiers who died there.


            Immediately after the cessation of hostilities, freedmen exhumed the bodies from the mass grave and reinterred them in individual graves. They built a fence around the graveyard with an entry arch and declared it a Union graveyard. On May 1, 1865, a crowd of up to ten thousand, mainly black residents, including 2800 children, proceeded to the location for events that included sermons, singing, and a picnic on the grounds, thereby creating the first Decoration Day-type celebration.


            Beginning in 1866 the Southern states had their own Memorial Days, ranging from April 26 to mid June. The birthday of Confederate President Jefferson Davis, June 3, became a state holiday in 10 states by 1916. Across the South associations were founded after the war to establish and care for permanent cemeteries for Confederate soldiers, organize commemorative ceremonies, and sponsor impressive monuments as a permanent way of remembering the Confederate tradition. Women provided the leadership in these associations, paving the way to establish themselves as capable of public leadership.


            The earliest Confederate Memorial Day celebrations were simple, somber occasions for veterans and their families to honor the day and attend to local cemeteries. Around 1890, there was a shift from this consolatory emphasis on honoring specific soldiers to public commemoration of the Confederate "Lost Cause". Changes in the ceremony's hymns and speeches reflect an evolution of the ritual into a symbol of cultural renewal and conservatism in the South. By 1913, however, the theme of American nationalism shared equal time with the Lost Cause. Columbus, Mississippi at its Decoration Day on April 25, 1866, commemorated both the Union and Confederate casualties buried in its cemetery.

             

            At Gettysburg

            The ceremonies and Memorial Day address at Gettysburg National Park were nationally famous, starting in 1868. In July 1913, veterans of the United States and Confederate armies gathered in Gettysburg to commemorate the fifty-year anniversary of the Civil War's bloodiest and most famous battle. The four-day "Blue-Gray Reunion" featured parades, reenactments, and speeches from a host of dignitaries, including President Woodrow Wilson, the first Southerner in the White House since the War.

             

            Congressman James Heflin of Alabama was given the honor of the main address. Heflin was a noted orator; two of his best-known speeches were an endorsement of the Lincoln Memorial and his call to make Mother's Day a holiday, but his choice as Memorial Day speaker was met with criticism.

             

            He was opposed for his racism, but his speech was moderate, stressing national unity and goodwill, and the newspapers, including those who opposed his invitation to speak, praised him.
