Well I was sitting at my gate at Reagan National Airport in Wash DC the other day and couldn't help but notice these dapper folks in spats, pin-stripes, anchors away dresses.

I came to learn all of this is sponsored by a non-profit group called the Honor Flight Network. They bring all kinds of U.S. war veterans to D.C. to tour the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, the National World WarII Memorial, the Korean War Veterans Memorial, and other memorial sites, such as Arlington National Cemetery. Any vet in America can qualify and is brought in absolutely gratis, but they are especially concentrating these days on WWII vets as the youngest of these individuals who served are now 85 years old. As a matter of fact, an astounding 640 WWII vets die every single day. By the way, I learned on their web site (honorflight.org) that oth ...

Emotional Reading of Names for Post-9/11 War Dead By JAMES GORDON MEEK May 24, 2014, 5:00 PM came to read the names on Saturday, the mothers and fathers, the wives, girlfriends, husbands, children, friends and the brothers-in-arms of 6,790 in the U.S. military who made the ultimate sacrifice in the wars fought after 9/11. On a grassy knoll overlooking the black granite panels of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, known as "The Wall," the line formed for the first complete reading of the war dead in Afghanistan, Iraq and elsewhere the U.S. has pursued al Qaeda and its allies since October 2001. "It's very emotional," Paula Davis, whose son was killed in Afghanistan eight years ago, told ABC News. "This helps to keep them alive, their memory alive." Davis's son, Army Pfc. Justin Davis, was a 10th Mountain Division trooper who died fighting in Konar province's Korengal Valley. On Monday's "Nightline", ABC News will broadcast excerpts and interviews from the new film "Korengal" by war correspondent Sebastian Jung ...

And I want to begin with acknowledging the leadership of Jan Scruggs and many sitting here in the front row who began this magnificent journey of building a Vietnam Veterans Memorial many, many years ago.

"Timing is Everything", and Rally In The Valley was proof today. We got in a beautiful ride to the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Angel Fire. We cut out the Cimarron Canyon part of the tour, due to weather concerns, and wanting to get back before it rained. We had a great lunch and then got back into Red River, just minutes before it started pouring! We have given away all the raffle prizes, and are leaving voicemail messages for all winners. We will Post the list of Prizes/Names later tonight. Thanks to ALL who helped make this such a great event for Make A Wish of New Mexico! Our caravan of bikes stretched almost two miles on the highway. Special Thanks to the New Mexico State Police Motorcycle Unit for Escorting us all the way, front and back! Another safe ride is in the books, and we are grateful.
As the nation welcomes summer this Memorial Day Weekend, we stand and honor those that have given the ultimate sacrifice for their fellow man, their community and most of all their country. So, this weekend while you are celebrating warmer weather, take the time to recognize what this holiday truly means: remembering those we've lost. Our board member and friend, Yvette Michelle Baugh, had the opportunity to read Kyle's name and his best friend's, Cpl. Ben Desilets, name at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial reading of the names this morning. This is the first time the names of all those KIA since September 11, 2001 have been read and it is a great honor to have Michelle read Kyle and Ben's names. You can watch it LIVE at the attached link. Again, take time this weekend to for it is because of them you have the opportunity to enjoy the daily freedoms we so often take for granted.

Until Memorial Day this year, I will be sharing one photo each day of a memorial along Hwy 83 dedicated for our fallen heroes. This is a plaque north of Paducah, Texas, commemorating the naming of Hwy 83 in Texas as the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Highway. Feel free to share your own photos over the next 5 days of memorials, or pictures of those from Hwy 83 communities who served.

We vow not to forget those who did not return to us and we pledge to remember the sacrifices of those who have come home."
