"I'm from the Netherlands and like to pay a salute too all the young people that came from the other side of the ocean to free the occupied countries in Europe, Those people made it possible for me to go freely were ever I like to go. I like too say 'Never Forget Them, They Were Too Important'" -- Hans van Daelen Waalwijk, NB Netherlands - Saturday, May 29, 1999

I was born in 1946. I did not serve in the military. Every day I pause for at least a moment to give thanks, not to God, but to those who gave their lives, bodies and futures in war, in order to secure the blessings of my life. I believe the treatment of merchant marines during and after World War II is a disgrace.

I SALUTE all the brave men and women that have defended our country and kept us safe. I have many friends and relatives that have served in the military, and public safety services. Some have given all, that we may live and enjoy the freedoms of this country. This is a day to appreciate the efforts of these brave people now and in the future. If you have not watched the movie (Saving Private Ryan) this would be a good weekend to the see the price some have paid for us.(I KNOW THIS IS ONLY A MOVIE AND DOES NOT DEPICT ALL THE SUFFERING.) God be with our men and women serving where ever they are. Say THANKS to a Military person, Law enforcement officer, Fireman, this week. They will appreciate it very much.

I have met and gotten to know many good people while in the military. All came in for different reasons, but all stayed for the same. That reason is love for their country. They are ready to pay that utimate sacrifice to keep our country free. This day is not only for those that have gone before us, but also for those that made the promise to keep what others fought and died for alive. To my sister services, from that trainee to that O-10, I salute you for a job well done.

I think it is a very good Idea to make this Sites. All people in the World schould think for the human who ever died in an war. We all have to trust the peace. I meant it must not be so strong to trust the peace an help all people. But not many people thougt so. We`re not allowed to forget our heroes.

Thank you for posting this page to honor all of our brethren who have died valliantly for our country. The recognition that you have provided is very well needed and much appreciated, especially in a time when devout patriotism is uncertain. Keep up the good work so that those who haven't served, or are too cowardly to serve, remember the price that men of honor have payed in the past and continue to pay with sacrifices through service in the present. God bless the American soldier.

Here is something I read recently that Honors all who are brave enough to defend our country. "Liberty is never unalienable; it must be redeemed regularly with the blood of patriots or it always vanishes. Of all the so-called natural human rights that have ever been invented, liberty is least likely to be cheap and is never free of cost." This was written by Robert Heinlein in 1959

Fine tribute too our veterans mared only by the inclusion of the empty words of its greatest traitor William J. (Bill)Clinton ! Its a shame that as history goes full cycle , the blood spilled in the past does not restrain us from making the same mistakes again !We are in a very dark period much as before Pearl Harbor . The status of our military is very low. Will we be able to rise above it again is the question that haunts me. Thanks for remembering !!!

I think that this page is a great tribute to all those who have fallen in whatever war or scurmish that has happened. We should all have the same strength that so many others have had and not look at one another with disdain lest we be put in a position to judge. I was in the Navy and never got to go over. I had lots of FRIENDS that did go and never came back. Lets try to remember the ones that did not get to go home, not just on Memorial Day, but every day.

Lest we forget! I recently retired from the Navy Reserve after 22 years of service. 6 years were active duty and the remainder were very "active" reserve years. This site is very poignant! Memorial Day has been my very least favorite holiday because of the way it has been relegated to the start of the summer party. 41 years ago, on Memorial Day I lost my father, who died on active duty serving our country in a place we weren't officially in. Thank you for pages of assurance that there are Americans who still remember the sacrifice of our loved ones and the pain of those left to remeber. Walter Cook ET1(SS) USNR-ret.

I served in the Military from 1987 to 1993. Memorial Day should be remembered by all and a special thanks to those who have fallen for a greater cause. I salute all of the members that have served and respect everything they stand for.

Great tribute to our fallen hero's. All of speaches and other thoughts added alot to your wedsite. The only part did not read is President's Clinton's remarks, I find them meaningless and including them was in poor taste, why should anyone believe and word he says, he is unable to tell the truth from a lie. He dose not care about our Veterans, he just wants us to believe he does.

I would just like to say that in these times of conflict in Kosovo, it is increasingly important for Americans to adopt an attitude of support for our women and men in uniform. These people although all volunteer, are giving thier all to a battle they and the American public may or may not agree with. However distasteful, they do it in the name of honor and Duty to Country. We, the almighty Americans, need to remember this not only on Memorial day, but every minute of everyday.

Please feel free to add your thoughts and comments in this guestbook about the true meaning of Memorial Day. Here you can pay homage and honor to loved ones who had paid the ultimate sacrifice, offer up prayers or poems in their memory, or otherwise express your grief and pride for those who have died in service to the United States of America. This isn't the place to debate war and peace, even those that serve know that war is evil, but to honor the memory and life of those that gave their all.
