We pause on this Memorial Day to join in this refrain
for those who gave their All for us so Freedom we'd retain.
For Darkness they confronted in preserving Freedom's Light
we owe them more than we can pay for giving more than Life
but Lives they gave Endure Today in Hearts and Souls and Minds
of we who drink from Freedom's Cup the Fruits of Freedom's Vines.

Veteran’s Day

Veteran’s Day has always been a special day for me. My Grandfather was killed in WWII in Italy. From what I have been able to find out about him he joined the Army and was sent to Europe. While fighting there he was shot. The injury was bad enough that he was sent home. After a year or so he healed up and re-joined. Now a Sergeant, in charge of a tank he was killed in Italy on April 19, 1945 at the age of 29.

He left behind a wife and two young children. My father, only 3 at the time has no recollection of his father. I often times think about what it would be like if I never knew my own father. I can’t imagine it. I also could never imagine what it would be like leaving my own wife and kids to fight for my country and possibly never come back. There is a Memorial here in town that has his name on it, I try to visit it every so often just to show some respect. I named my first son after him, it was the least that I could do. When my son is old enough I plan on taking him to the Memorial and explaining to him what his name is all about.

I know that there are plenty of stories out there, but this one is mine. So maybe for just one day, we can all forget about petty political differences and remember our Vets. For without them and their sacrifices none of us would be here. Freedom isn’t free!

The World War II Lorraine American Cemetery and Memorial is located three quarters a mile north of the town of St. Avold (Moselle), France on Highway N-33. St. Avold, which is twenty eight miles east of Metz and seventeen miles southwest of Saarbrucken, can be reached by automobile from Paris via toll Autoroute A in about four hours. Trains from Paris (Gare de l'Est) take about three and a half hours to the St. Avold Station, which is three miles from the cemetery. There are hotels at St. Avold, Forbach, Saarbrucken and Metz.

The cemetery, one hundred and thirteen acres in extent, contains 10,489 American Military Dead, the largest number in our military cemeteries of World War II Dead in Europe. Most of the Dead here were killed in driving the German forces from the fortress city of Metz toward the Siegfried Line and the Rhine River. Initially, there were over 16,000 Americans interred in the St. Avold region, mostly from the U.S. Seventh Army's Infantry and Armored Divisions and its Cavalry Groups. Their headstones are arranged in nine plots in a generally elliptical design extending over the beautiful rolling terrain of eastern Lorraine and culminating in a prominent overlook feature. St. Avold served as a vital communications center for the vast network of enemy defenses guarding the western border of the Third Reich.

The memorial, which stands on a plateau to the west of the burial area, contains ceramic operations maps with narratives and service flags. High on its exterior wall is the figure of St. Nabor, the martyred Roman soldier, who overlooks the silent host. On each side of the memorial and parallel; to its front stretch the Tablets of the Missing on which are inscribed the names of 444 Americans who gave their lives in the service of their country but whose remains were not recovered or identified. The entire area is framed in woodland.

The cemetery is open daily to the public from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm except December 25 and January 1. It is open on host country holidays. When the cemetery is open to the public, a staff member is on duty in the Visitors’ Building to answer questions and escort relatives to grave and memorial sites.

Absolutely. Support our troops always. Remember, they don't make the decisions for the war...they're just willing to fight the good fight if their country calls on them.
