American War Memorial, Fort Bonifacio, Taguig, M.M.

 

This is the chapel with an altar inside where one can pray for the departed souls. It is a white masonry building enriched with sculpture and mosaic standing near the center of the cemetery. You should hear its chime every hour on the hour. Yesterday it played Morning Has Broken.

Stanford Memorial Church (also referred to informally as MemChu) is located on the Main Quad at the center of the Stanford University campus in Stanford, California, United States. It was built during the American Renaissance[2] by Jane Stanford as a memorial to her husband Leland. Designed by architect Charles A. Coolidge, a protégé of Henry Hobson Richardson, the church has been called "the University's architectural crown jewel".[3]

 

Designs for the church were submitted to Jane Stanford and the university trustees in 1898, and it was dedicated in 1903. The building is Romanesque in form and Byzantine in its details, inspired by churches in the region of Venice, especially, Ravenna. Its stained glass windows and extensive mosaics are based on religious paintings the Stanfords admired in Europe. The church has five pipe organs, which allow musicians to produce many styles of organ music. Stanford Memorial Church has withstood two major earthquakes, in 1906 and 1989, and was extensively renovated after each.

"Memorial Day is a United States federal holiday that is observed on the last Monday of May (observed this year on 2007-05-28). It was formerly known as Decoration Day. This holiday commemorates U.S. men and women who have died in military service to their country. It began first to honor Union soldiers who died during the American Civil War. After World War I, it expanded to include those who died in any war or military action. One of the longest standing traditions is the running of the Indianapolis 500, which has been held in conjunction with Memorial Day since 1911."

Memorial Day is a United States federal holiday which occurs every year on the final Monday of May.[1] Memorial Day is a day of remembering the men and women who died while serving in the United States Armed Forces.[2] Formerly known as Decoration Day, it originated after the American Civil War to commemorate the Union and Confederate soldiers who died in the Civil War. By the 20th century, Memorial Day had been extended to honor all Americans who have died while in the military service.[3] It typically marks the start of the summer vacation season, while Labor Day marks its end.

Many people visit cemeteries and memorials, particularly to honor those who have died in military service. Many volunteers place an American flag on each grave in national cemeteries.

The Lincoln Memorial is an American memorial built to honor the 16th President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln. It is located on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. The architect was Henry Bacon, the sculptor of the main statue (Abraham Lincoln, 1920) was Daniel Chester French, and the painter of the interior murals was Jules Guerin. It is one of several monuments built to honor an American president.

 

The building is in the form of a Greek Doric temple and contains a large seated sculpture of Abraham Lincoln and inscriptions of two well-known speeches by Lincoln, The Gettysburg Address and his Second Inaugural Address. The memorial has been the site of many famous speeches, including Martin Luther King's "I Have a Dream" speech, delivered on August 28, 1963 during the rally at the end of the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom.

 

Like other monuments on the National Mall – including the nearby Vietnam Veterans Memorial, Korean War Veterans Memorial, and National World War II Memorial – the memorial is administered by the National Park Service under its National Mall and Memorial Parks group. It has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places since October 15, 1966. It is open to the public 24 hours a day. In 2007, it was ranked seventh on the List of America's Favorite Architecture by the American Institute of Architects.

John Ericsson National Memorial, located near the National Mall at Ohio Drive and Independence Avenue, SW, in Washington, D.C., is dedicated to the man who revolutionized naval history with his invention of the screw propeller. The Swedish engineer John Ericsson was also the designer of the USS Monitor, the ship that ensured Union naval supremacy during the American Civil War.[1]

 

The national memorial was authorized by Congress August 31, 1916, and dedicated May 29, 1926 by President Calvin Coolidge and Crown Prince Gustaf Adolf of Sweden. Congress appropriated $35,000 for the creation of the memorial, and Americans chiefly of Scandinavian descent raised an additional $25,000. Constructed on a site near the Lincoln Memorial between September 1926 and April 1927, the pink Milford granite memorial is 20 feet (6.1 m) high with a 150-foot (46 m) diameter base.

 

Sculpted by James Earle Fraser, it features a seated figure of Ericsson 6 feet 5 inches (1.96 m) high, and three standing figures representing adventure, labor, and vision. The national memorial is managed by National Mall and Memorial Parks.

The Luxembourg American Cemetery and Memorial is located in Hamm, Luxembourg City, Luxembourg. The cemetery can be found 2.5 kilometers southwest of Findel Airport. It is administered by the American Battle Monuments Commission. Under a US-Luxembourg treaty signed in 1951 the US government was granted free use in perpetuity of the land covered by the cemetery, without taxation.

 

The cemetery, which is 50.5 acres (20.4 ha) in extent contains the remains of 5,076 American service members. On 22 occasions two brothers rest side-by-side in adjacent graves. Most of the interred died during the Battle of the Bulge which was fought nearby in winter 1944/1945. The 5,076 headstones are set in 9 plots of fine grass, lettered A to I. Separating the plots are two malls radiating from the memorial and two transverse paths. Two flagpoles overlook the graves area. Situated between the two flagpoles lies the grave of General George S. Patton Jr.

 

May they all rest in peace.

At the Henri-Chapelle American Cemetery and Memorial in Belgium, covering 57 acres, rest 7,992 of our military dead, most of whom lost their lives during the advance of the U.S. armed forces into Germany. Their headstones are arranged in gentle arcs sweeping across a broad green lawn that slopes gently downhill. A highway passes through the cemetery. West of the highway is an overlook that affords an excellent view of the rolling Belgian countryside, once a battlefield.

 

To the east is the long colonnade that, with the chapel and map room, forms the memorial overlooking the burial area. The chapel is simple, but richly ornamented. In the map room are two maps of military operations, carved in black granite, with inscriptions recalling the achievements of our forces. On the rectangular piers of the colonnade are inscribed the names of 450 missing. Rosettes mark the names of those since recovered and identified. The seals of the states and territories are also carved on these piers.

 

The cemetery possesses great military historic significance as it holds fallen Americans of two major efforts, one covering the U.S. First Army's drive in September 1944 through northern France, Belgium, Holland and Luxembourg into Germany, and the second covering the Battle of the Bulge. It was from the temporary cemetery at Henri-Chapelle that the first shipments of remains of American war dead were returned to the United States for permanent burial. The repatriation program began on July 27, 1947 at a special ceremony at the cemetery when the disinterment began. The first shipment of 5,600 American war dead from Henri-Chapelle left Antwerp, Belgium the first week of October 1947. An impressive ceremony was held, with over 30,000 Belgian citizens attending, along with representatives of the Belgium government and senior Americans.

Growing up in a military home, I knew the meaning of Memorial Day. Unfortunately sometimes familiarity can lead to indifference. It wasn’t until my first experience with the loss of a soldier of whom I knew personally that the meaning and message of the day became painfully significant.

The sacrifice and courage of our soldiers is remembered and appreciated. We pray for their protection as they defend our country. Today, I would also ask that you take a moment of your time to say a prayer for their families. All over our country there are courageous husbands, wives, fathers, mothers, grandparents, siblings and children daily dealing with the separation– or worse, the loss of their soldier. Today, we remember their courage as well. LH

Memorial Day Backyard Babecue Meal with Hamburgers Hot dogs Salads and Chips

To most Americans, Memorial Day is just a day to barbecue, go to the beach, and hang out with family or friends. We've come to think of it as that 3 day weekend we look forward to, well, at least the folks who don't work in sales like I do! We're never off!

 

Memorial Day is SUPPOSED to be a day to honor our greatest patriots; the men and women who have served their country in the armed forces, and who have given their lives in doing so. It is a day to think about the cost of being a free nation, and a day to be grateful that someone else fought to keep us that way. To me, it's a day that makes me have profound respect for those who didn't die, but who came home, often disabled or suffering from post traumatic stress disorder, or night terrors, or who received much less than a hero's welcome. One young man who came in my store one day said that after serving in the Middle East, he was branded a "baby killer" upon arriving home with the physical pain from his wounds that would never leave him for the rest of his life.

 

One of my best friends was a Top Gun in Vietnam. During his military career, he was shot in the head and the leg, and had an out of body experience as the doctor was attempting to save his life on the operating table. When he came to, he told the doctor where he'd dropped a pen he couldn't find, something he couldn't know unless he'd been hovering OVER his body in the room, as it couldn't be seen otherwise!

 

This photo was taken in a park dedicated to local soldiers who had served in the military. I noticed smaller plaques that people had put around the grounds to honor a specific person. It is beside a lake next to the library in the Port Orange City Center, Port Orange, Florida. Flags fly nearby, and children point at turtles and birds in the water. Women jog by with their dogs. An osprey dives into the lake after fish, and people like me grab photos. Few of us give much thought to the names on those plaques. But they're there. Silently shouting, "Don't forget us!" We do, but then on days like this weekend, we choose to remember that freedom isn't free at all. It's paid for in blood.

 

God bless our troops, past ans present, and God bless America.
