We gives thanks at our home for all who served and those who gave all so we can enjoy the things we have. Also for the men amd women from other countries who battled sholder to sholder with our countrymen.
Thank You to all the fine folks here for all the tips and advice so I can now smoke a chunk of meat and folks actually eat it.

""A Letter From A Soldier""

I fight for you everyday
For your safety and freedom far, far away
Everyday I fear that it may be my last
Looking at what was important to me in the past


I choose this life, to fight
For your freedom, your eternal right
It gets lonely out in this far distant land
I have nothing but my gun and boots full of sand


I pray to Jesus each and every night
That he may shield me from this next fight
I live each day with fear of death
I never know when it will be my last breath


"Lets Move Out" says my captain
Always worried about what will happen
I get my gear and my gun
I ask myself "How much more, before this is done?"


Bullets and RPG's zooming past my head
I cant help but fear soon I will be dead
Each and every second of life i cherish
Because I never know when I will perish


A sound of gun shots all around
Bodies of young soldiers is all to be found
Bombs shattering the buildings apart
Mirror the pieces that are also my heart


Every dying soldier causes me to tremble
All the soldiers will start to assemble
The greatest gift I can give
Is to lay down my life so someone else may live


All those young men who did not come home
Also left their family and children all alone
I'm here safe and sound
Now with my family on my own ground


I pray for my fellow soldiers everyday
I ask the lord to reward them for what they had to pay
Show mercy to all those who fell
"Lord, they have served their time in heII"

[Today] is Memorial Day. A day we use to recognize the memory of our fallen comrades in arms, regardless of service. Many of you may see a veteran tomorrow and wish to express your thanks for their service, perhaps pay for their meal or something. Instead, take that money, buy a bunch of flowers, and go to your nearest veterans cemetery and place one on each gravesite till you run out. [Today] is not about those of us who remain, but rather those who have passed. Or perhaps find the home of a Gold Star Widow in your area and go offer to mow their lawn, trim the hedges, heck, take out the trash for them. Do something besides sit outside and have a barbeque and watch TV all day. Enjoy your day off, but remember that someone paid a price for that day you can never pay back. -- David Sharpe, US Navy (Retired)
