Lest We Forget 2009

“Lead them straight and true; give strength to their arms, stoutness to their hearts, steadfastness in their faith.

Some will never return. Embrace these, Father, and receive them, Thy heroic servants, into Thy kingdom.”

FDR D-Day Prayer, June 6, 1944

Arlington National Cemetery in the Fog


“And a part of them is with us always.”

  1. Freedom is not free- we are so lucky that we live in a nation where men and women willingly and bravely defend and fight for us so we can express our beliefs and live our lives as we please.

    They are heroes, each and every one of them.


  2. Absolutely beautiful, TP. Well done.

  5. beautiful…we should remember them everyday..it breaks my heart that people dont even acknowledge what this holiday is even about..

    ” we will always remember, we will always be proud, we will always be prepared, so we may always be free.” RR
