There is nothing nobler than risking your life for your country.
Over all our happy country – over all our Nation spread, is a band of noble heroes– is our Army of the Dead.

Inspirational Memorial Day Quotes Sayings
Finally, I wish to remember the millions of Allied servicemen and prisoners of war who lived the story of the Second World War. Many of these men never came home; many others returned bearing emotional and physical scars that would stay with them for the rest of their lives. I come away from this book with the deepest appreciation for what these men endured, and what they sacrificed, for the good of humanity.

Tonight, when you go to bed, say a prayer that God watch over those who watch over us, and thank them for their sacrifices, on and off the battlefield.

As individuals die every moment, how insensitive and fabricated a love it is to set aside a day from selfish routine in prideful, patriotic commemoration of tragedy.

Because we weren’t there when the price was paid doesn’t mean that the price wasn’t paid. And if we don’t believe that, maybe we need to consider the solider who never came home so that we could.
Memorial Day Quotes Military
To be ignorant of the sacrifices of others that yielded the blessings I enjoy leaves me exchanging the reality of ‘blessing’ for the assumption of ‘entitlement.’ And once that happens, I will forfeit the reality of the former which will destroy the assumption of the latter. And in what terribly dark place will that now leave me?
We are notorious for ‘running’ around self-righteously declaring our rights to this and to that. But if we were to reflect upon the millions who ‘ran’ across bloodied battlefields so that we would have rights to declare, I think we’d do a whole lot less declaring and a whole more appreciating.
While we tediously check our weaponry before entering into battle, do we check our hearts? For without exception, that is the greatest weapon of all.

May the many monuments that abound remind me of the desperate need for courage, the inestimable value of valor, the honor evoked of sacrifice, and the fact that a life spent in the service of self embodies none of these.
Outwardly we might say we believe that liberty is a gift. But our belief that we have a ‘right’ to that ‘gift’ is the thing that’s certain to kill it.
Memorial Day Quotes and Images
Many are rather easily able to contemplate the heroism of sacrifice, yet it is the few who are brave enough to move that notion from thought to action. And it is to those of you who made that move that my heart salutes and my soul marvels.
