Memorial Day 2011

This will be a short post, because I know all seven of you have things to do today, like cooking out, ot going to the beach if you have one handy, or maybe attending a Memorial Day parade.

Whatever you do today, please keep in mind your fellow Americans who are currently serving and especially remember those who have paid the ultimate price for your freedom. Keep them in your thoughts and prayers.

I'll post a few links that I found this morning in my travels. These were stolen from contributed by the sites in the sidebar. I hope you enjoy them.

Honor the Fallen.

As you may know, Memorial Day was started shortly after the Civil War. Here's a link to the recounting of a battle from that war, The Bloody Angle at Spotsylvania.

From Instapundit, Memorial Day: The War in Iraq.

Michelle Malkin's Memorial Day 2001. The song at the bottom by Trace Adkins is very moving.

From Pajamas Media comes this perfect Memorial Day charity, Tea are the World.

And finally, here's a musical tribute to our fighting forces from somebody named Gene Simmons,

Happy Memorial Day, y'all.
