Remembering what “Memorial Day” really means.

Memorial Day was originally referred to as “Decoration Day” and was first established on May 5, 1868. On that day, Americans would visit the graves of soldiers and sailors killed in battle during American wars and pay their respects to the fallen by cleaning up and decorating their graves.
Memorial Day is not about a three-day weekend, going to the beach, having BBQ’s or commercial sales of products. It should be about reflection, respect, homage and giving thanks to those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice at the alter of freedom so we can live free as Americans.
Memorial Day is about remembering that our fallen heroes died in belief of our flag and what its colors represent. Red – symbolizes courage, valor and blood sacrifice. White – for innocence and purity of the American ideals and values. Blue – for vigilance and justice.

When we remember the fallen, we should also remember and pay tribute to the American flag, our National Anthem and all that they symbolize, for they are one and the same.

Just some statistics about our wars, conflicts and those who should be remembered on Memorial Day. Lives lost:

The Revolutionary War – 25,000
The War of 1812 – 20,000
The Mexican-American Conflict – 13,000
The Civil War – 655,000
The Spanish American War – 2,500
World War I – 116.500
World War II – 405,000
The Korean Conflict – 36,500
The Vietnam Conflict – 58,287
The Global War on Terror – 7,258
Notes on the Vietnam Conflict
40,000 who died were just 22 years old or younger
8,282 who died were 19 years old
33,103 who died were 18 years old
12 who died were 17 years old
5 who died were only 16 years old
997 were killed on their first day in Vietnam
1,448 were killed on their last day in Vietnam
244 were awarded the Medal of Honor and 163 are on The Wall
I lost 7 of my high school seniors out of a graduating class of 420 in Vietnam.
Most children, young adults and some politicians don’t even know the difference between Memorial Day and Veteran’s Day. Many others don’t even care. They are easy to recognize, they’re the ones taking a knee or hiding out in a sports team locker room to virtue signal. That’s because we have failed to educate them on the meanings behind the our Flag, our National Anthem and Memorial Day. As responsibility as American adults no matter your politics is to educate these generations. No matter what the naysayers tell you, we are still the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave.
God Bless all who have passed in sacrifice for our Country and our freedoms. RIP. Please share.

Article on Post Mass Shootings Trauma for First Responders – file:///E:/2.%20Articles%20-%20DrRon/Post-Shooting%20Trauma/PORAC_Post-Shooting%20Trauma_02-2013.pdf

Welcome to Year 3 of the Chinese Virus.  Here are some thoughts as we begin a new year under the Biden Build Back Broke Disintegration Plan:

 According to the American Petroleum Institute, we have enough oil in North America to fuel every single passenger car and long-haul truck for the next 430 years.  We have enough natural gas to provide electricity for every business and household for the next 535 years and enough coal to provide electricity for about 500 years.  So, don’t you think that in 430 years we will have developed alternative fuel sources?  Why then did Joe Biden sacrifice America’s energy independence, cease all exploration for oil and gas, abandon pipeline development and drive up prices of gasoline, heating oil, and jet fuel and make us once again dependent on foreign oil?

Isn’t it curious that in some states like California, Washington, Illinois, and New York, shoplifting of items less than $950 is not a crime but the Biden Build Back Better Spendalooza calls for hiring 87,000 IRS agents to monitor individual banking transactions of $600 or more?  Fascinating.

Someone needs to educate me as to how we are going to produce all the batteries needed to facilitate a transition away from fossil fuels to battery-driven vehicles when the basic ingredients for batteries are all found in rare minerals such as lithium, cobalt, and zinc and others, all of which must be mined in countries not exactly friendly to us.  Also, if you have ever driven on the Cross Bronx Expressway or the 405 in Southern California and were stuck in traffic, how exactly will the repair truck reach a disabled vehicle before their battery dies…along with the batteries of all the other vehicles in traffic?

When will construction start to build the 500,000 battery charging stations Joe Biden told us about?  Where will they be situated? Won’t they be powered by burning fossil fuels?  

If you ever feel like you haven’t accomplished anything, try to remember that it took 20 years, trillions of dollars and four Presidents to replace the Taliban in Afghanistan with………. the Taliban.

If you feel your job is hard and you are unappreciated, think about the poor slob who serves as the sign language interpreter for Joe Biden.

Let me try to understand this:  we can’t seem to find illegals to deport, but we can sure find them to give them money!  How does that work?

If there was a barnyard election, the pigs would always vote for the person that feeds them and gives them treats, even though that same person is going to slaughter them someday.  That same philosophy is the very definition of socialism.

Memo to Generation Z and the Woke Generation:  The Stars and Stripes that fly over our Nation’s Capital and are wrapped around the coffins of our honored dead who sacrificed their lives to keep us free, is my Flag.  I will never apologize for it.  The Flag does not stand for skin color, race, or religion.  It stands for freedom.  Never forget that!

In today’s challenging times, we need to infuse enthusiasm in ourselves and in those around us.

A six-minute tribute to D-Day that is well done and very moving.

FOR KERRY

THE GREATEST MIDNIGHT WATCH COMMANDER!

Yesterday was the one year anniversary of the mass shooting at the VTA light rail facility. Thanks to all of you for your support! District Attorney Jeff Rosen presented one of four Medals of Honor from his office to the brave officers of the San Jose Police Department. Sergeant Kevin Sebree and I accepted the award on their behaves. The officers here are the bravest people I know and I wanted to acknowledge the heroism I witnessed that day. You will always hear a brave officer say that any other officer would have done the same thing, but I can say that is simply not true. When you are willing to lay your life down so a stranger can live, that defines what a hero is. A huge thank you to these officers who put it all on the line so others could live. These officers are my heroes and we are forever bonded.

Officer Singh
Officer Bannister
Officer Epperson
Officer Surry
Officer Rodriguez

MOST OLD TIMERS WILL REMEMBER I HAVE BEEN A STRONG SUPPORTER OF THE NRA, A BOARD MEMBER AT THE TIME, AND A SQUABBLE WITH NEW YAWK EX-CHIEF MACNAMARA OVER THAT AFFILIATION AT THE TIME.


AND NOW THE MOST PATRIOTIC SONG EVER SUNG HAS BEEN TARNISHED!

So much vitriol from celebrities, led by Lee Greenwood, cancelling his NRA Convention appearance and demonizing the organization and it’s the members as “baby killers”. 

In effect, Greenwood is accusing me and hundreds of thousands of Americans of being responsible for the killing of innocent children!

Nowhere does Greenwood, other sniveling celebrities, nor the left-wing media mention, MENTION, the evil killer who actually shot and killed those innocent children in cold blood as the huddled in fear and panicked in their classroom.

What a disappointment Mr. Greenwood. Your music has long been a favorite, but no more.

You are canceled!
