Memorial Day 2012 - I Remember

Please forgive me but the picture I have to show you all I found at Twitter.  A Tweeter gave this picture up so that all could make an Avatar for it and I did.  Unfortunately, I forgot to save the Tweet and I forgot to save the pictorial web site.  So if anyone out there knows who’s picture this is, let me know.  Thanks.

UPDATE and Note 1: no one has let me know where this picture is from.

Note 2: see my article at The Examiner.  Thanks.

Memorial Day is not Veteran’s Day nor is it a birthday or Christmas or any other “holiday”.  As a matter of fact, Memorial Day is not a “holiday”.  Memorial Day is a day of remembrance for the Fallen - the men and women that have died for the American Flag and those that have been wounded for the American Flag.  This is a Patriotic day.

This isn’t a time to make a savings at whatever store that is having a sale on whatever it is that you want to buy.

This isn’t a day that you have a party of sorts making hamburgers, hot dogs or any other kind of meat and potatoes nor is it a day that the vegetarians can make a salad.

This is not a day that friends gather and drink so much alcohol that you will have to worship the porcelain gods later.

This is not a day that the Holiday Crowds can get a free day off.

Memorial Day is a day of Remembrance.

Seeing what this day called Memorial Day has become, I have grown to hate this day - because I remember.

I remember days and days of battle.

I remember what the smells are like from battle.

I remember what spilled blood looks like.

I remember what spilled blood tastes like.

I remember taking showers and baths just to wipe the blood off of me that wasn’t my own.

I remember taking showers and baths to wipe the blood off that was mine.

I remember the screams.

I remember the pain.

I remember the Glory of Victory and I remember the days of defeat.

I remember carrying the once alive men.

I remember carrying the dead.

I remember cleaning off the blood from myself when there was no blood to wash off…it just felt like it was blood; and tasted like blood and it could have been my own or anyone else’s blood - but I washed it off anyway.  And it is still there.

There are no unwounded from battle.

There are no undead from battle.

War is hell and those of us that lived in and through war know what it is like and we prayed for peace…peace will never come, I’m afraid.

I remember getting dragged by a Marine to a place of safety - I don’t remember anything after that actually until I woke up in Germany.  I don’t remember much of Germany either.  I do remember coming State side.

I remember what the Vietnam Veterans remember…a country packed full of people that do not belong to this Nation.

I even remember someone telling me, “Welcome Home, Soldier”.  And, yes, I cried.  I remember.

I remember what has happened to this pathetic day called Memorial Day and I hate it so.

I remember what family members of the Fallen remember, and know.  They remember that their family members are now dead and gone from this planet Earth forever.  I remember their pain because I remember it as well.  I remember.

I even remember The Why we always go to war and get killed or wounded and I also remember PTSD and what happens to a man or woman that gets PTSD.  Why?  Because I have PTSD and there is no getting over it.  There are no unwounded in war, in battle and there are no undead.

The Diplomats all cause wars to occur.  Why?  Because all the Diplomats do is prolong war.  Diplomats in their hedonistic ways and means are actually too nice and in the end, I suppose they take great pride in causing the deaths on the unknowns…people like myself and a man named Monsoor among all the rest.  Roger That.  I suppose their trueness is actually a False Doctrine.  Isn’t it?  That’s the way I remember them.

Yes.  I remember.  And you?  What do you remember?  Do you remember what a fool you make of yourself hunched over the porcelain god?  Do you remember the savings you make at the stores?  Will you remember the Fallen?  I remember.  Do you say a toast to the Fallen?  I do.  Why?  Because I remember.

I remember how many of us respond to Memorial Day and most of us do hate this day for what it has become.

Memorial Day.

I remember.

You're welcome, Donald.

Thank you so very much for your post. It made me reflect on the real meaning of Memorial Day.

There is a site which Honors the Fallen in our Iraq & Afghanistan wars > http://www.militarytimes.com/valor/. My family member who was killed in Iraq by IED was cited there. I also took time to read about some of the others who sacrificed their lives for our nation. I will make a point to visit that site more often.

We owe such a debt of gratitude to our fallen soldiers and our Vets. Thank you.
