It’s too easy to go through our daily routine and take for granted how good we have things in America.  Unfortunately many young Americans don’t realize the reasons we have the life and opportunities they do and routinely take it for granted or worse, believe they automatically rate these great opportunities without considering a price that came with it.

If we stop and look at the reasons we are able to live the way we do it stems back to the heritage of those that have given all for what they believe in.  Many younger Americans can’t comprehend that there was a time when America was threatened, the freedoms we enjoy and the country as a whole.  During great World Wars, America stepped up and smashed multiple oppositions that wanted to destroy what America stood for even attacking us.

For all of those evils that were defeated in the past and even today with new evils trying to attack us and destroy and change America we have to thank our veterans that went into harms way and never came back.  Veterans that freely volunteer to go to the point of friction, the area where the most heinous things man can do are witnessed and defeated evil even when it cost many of them their lives both yesteryear and today.

When you look at the mere numbers America has sacrificed on foreign soil to take the fight against evil its astonishing.  Look at the pictures below and remember not only those that died for America, but there are families for each of those below that made a sacrifice as well.

HOW MANY FRENCH, DUTCH, ITALIANS, 
BELGIANS AND BRITS ARE BURIED ON 
OUR SOIL, DEFENDING US AGAINST OUR 
ENEMIES?

Below are some additional figures that remind us that freedom isn’t free:

Americans killed-

World War I  - 116,516

World War II  - 405,399

Vietnam War  - 58,209

Korean War –  36,516

Operation Iraqi Freedom –  4,486

Operation Enduring Freedom –  1,984 (to date)

 

Our young Americans and unfortunately some adults could use a good face shot to remind them that to a degree everything they have today in America is because of those previous numbers of warriors that gave all. You don’t “rate” a monetary fortune, you don’t automatically deserve nice things, no one “owes” you anything in America. If you do your best you will get what is coming to you. Those that are honored this Memorial day didn’t ask what their country could do for them, they went and gave all for their country and in my book there is no greater display of sacrifice or patriotism.

 Time for a CGar!

  1. Spot on, everyday is Memorial Day but in today’s America our younger generation don’t see it that way, at least the ones that don’t serve. This MSNBC assclown should not only apologize but be fired and sent overseas with a one way ticket where he can make a better evaluation on what our heroes are doing (doubt his manicured hands will like it though). That goes for any other non loving American out there sucking off the freedom provided by our heroes. Perhaps in happydappy land you can shield the word hero and prevent wars (what is he thinking?) and this guy is on TV??? WTF?
    You think our warriors that paid the ultimate price aren’t heroes? You like communism? Move to China; let me know how it works out for ya. You don’t like America? Its simple, leave and don’t let the door hit you in the ass. But for all that is holy, if you try to desecrate my fellow warriors that have given all, you just rounded the wrong freaking corner sweetheart! Please feel free to send me a rebuttal MSNBC, I’ll be the one with the shaved head and CGAR!
    God Bless America!

  2. Who are the big MSNBC advertising sponsors? I would not mind letting them know that I will not buy their products as long as this clown is still employed there.
