United States National POW/MIA Recognition Day September 20

 The U.S. National POW/MIA Recognition Day is observed across the nation on the third Friday of September each year. Many Americans take the time to remember those who were prisoners of war (POW) and those who are missing in action (MIA), as well as their families. National POW/MIA Recognition Day is not a federal public holiday in the United States but it is a national observance.

Today, Veteran events will take place across the country. United States flags and POW/MIA flags are flown on this day and joint prayers are made for POWs and those missing in action. National POW/MIA Recognition Day posters are also displayed at college or university campuses and public buildings to promote the day. Remembrance ceremonies and other events to observe the day are also held in places such as the Pentagon, war memorials and museums.

The National League of Families’ POW/MIA flag symbolizes the United States’ resolve to never forget POWs or those who served their country in conflicts and are still missing. Newt Heisley designed the flag. The flag’s design features a silhouette of a young man, which is based on Mr. Heisley’s son, who was medically discharged from the military. As Mr. Heisley looked at his returning son’s gaunt features, he imagined what life was for those behind barbed wire fences on foreign shores. He then sketched the profile of his son as the new flag's design was created in his mind.


The POW/MIA flag is displayed on Armed Forces Day, Memorial Day, Flag Day, Independence Day and Veterans Day, and many people display the flag yearly to show recognition and remembrance. The flag can be displayed at the Capitol, the White House, the Korean War Veterans Memorial and the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, national cemeteries, various government buildings, and major military installations.

Across the country, local POW/MIA ceremonies are encouraged throughout POW/MIA Recognition Week, culminating with countless events and the national ceremony in Washington, DC, on Recognition Day. America’s POW/MIAs should be honored and recognized, rather than memorialized, with the focus on the need to account as fully as possible for those still missing, alive or dead. Strong, united support by the American people is important each day, honoring our POW/MIA personnel.

VetFriends.com sends our prayers to all who sacrificed, past and present, living and deceased. Your bravery and service has protected the American people, our freedoms and our great country. Thank you for your service.

VetFriends.com is here to honor and support all of you, our U.S. Veterans, military personnel, family and friends.





Thanks again & may your weekend be filled with Pride, Remembrance, Honor, & Tradition.

Sadly We Report The Passing Of Colonel George E. "Bud" Day; "A true American hero flown West"; Washington Post: Col. ‘Bud’ Day, Medal of Honor recipient who was McCain’s POW cellmate in Vietnam, dies at 88

 MIAMI — Retired Col. George “Bud” Day, a Medal of Honor recipient who spent 5½ years as a POW in Vietnam and was Arizona Sen. John McCain’s cellmate, has died at the age of 88, his widow said Sunday.

Day, one of the nation’s most highly decorated servicemen since Gen. Douglas MacArthur and later a tireless advocate for veterans’ rights, died Saturday surrounded by family at his home in Shalimar, after a long illness, Doris Day said.
“He would have died in my arms if I could have picked him up,” she said.
Day received the Medal of Honor for escaping his captors for 10 days after the aircraft he was piloting was shot down over North Vietnam. In all, he earned more than 70 medals during service in World War II, Korea and Vietnam.
He was an enlisted Marine serving in the Pacific during World War II and an Air Force pilot in the Korean and Vietnam wars.
In Vietnam, he was McCain’s cellmate at one camp known as the Plantation and later in the infamous Hanoi Hilton, where he was often the highest-ranking captive. During his imprisonment, the once-muscular, 5-foot-9 Day was hung by his arms for days, tearing them from their sockets. He was freed in 1973 — a skeletal figure of the once dashing fighter pilot. His hands and arms never functioned properly again.

Who’s Joshua Chellew?

Who's Joshua Chellew

Who’s Joshua Chellew? The fact that you don’t know his name is the whole point. But that’s not your fault.
Four south Cobb teenagers are in custody in connection with the beating death of a 36-year-old Mableton man on Mableton Parkway early Sundaymorning…
They have been accused in the beating death of Joshua Heath Chellew, 36…
According to the warrant, the four teenagers are accused of starting a fight with Chellew at a Chevron gas station in the 6200 block of Mableton Parkway near Community Drive at about 1:20 a.m. Sunday. They repeatedly punched and kicked him, according to police.
While attempting to escape, Chellew backed into the center five-lane highway and was pushed to the ground and knocked unconscious, the warrant states.
They then walked away from Chellew, “leaving him helpless,” and he was eventually hit by a car, the warrant states.
A horrible, senseless murder. Why hasn’t it received wider attention?
This might be why.
 Joshua Chellew:











 The men who murdered him:






If Obama had four more sons…
If the races had been reversed, this would be the biggest news story in the United States. It would have knocked the Zimmerman trial out of the news.
Yep. Or, if Chellew had been able to defend himself against one or all of them, he’d be the new George Zimmerman. We’d be seeing baby pictures of his attackers. Al Sharpton would be marching. Jay Carney would be filibustering away all questions about Obama’s latest race-baiting. MSNBC would be on full alert.
But Chellew wasn’t able to defend himself. He probably deserved it, right? I mean, just look at him. You can’t get any whiter than that.

"Happy Birthday, President Reagan" We Miss You!

"The Gipper" President Ronald Reagan would have lived for 102 years today.  RIP

By Carol Platt Liebau
This idea — that government was beholden to the people, that it had no other source of power — is still the newest, most unique idea in all the long history of man’s relation to man. This is the issue of this election: Whether we believe in our capacity for self-government or whether we abandon the American Revolution and confess that a little intellectual elite in a far-distant capital can plan our lives for us better than we can plan them ourselves.
You and I are told we must choose between a left or right, but I suggest there is no such thing as a left or right. There is only an up or down. Up to man’s age-old dream–the maximum of individual freedom consistent with order — or down to the ant heap of totalitarianism. Regardless of their sincerity, their humanitarian motives, those who would sacrifice freedom for security have embarked on this downward path. Plutarch warned, “The real destroyer of the liberties of the people is he who spreads among them bounties, donations and benefits.”
The Founding Fathers knew a government can’t control the economy without controlling people. And they knew when a government sets out to do that, it must use force and coercion to achieve its purpose. So we have come to a time for choosing.

Above all, we must realize that no arsenal, or no weapon in the arsenals of the world, is so formidable as the will and moral courage of free men and women. It is a weapon our adversaries in today's world do not have.

In memory of 7th December 1941 Japanese raid on Pearl Harbor.‏





7th December 1941 Japanese raid on Pearl Harbor was one of the great defining moments in history. Attack on Pearl Harbor was suddenly done by Japanese navy against the united states naval base at Pearl harbor, Hawaii on December 7, 1941. America was attacked without warning and without provocation. More than 2,400 Americans died and 1,100 were wounded. Lot of families lost their loved ones due to this attack.

Angel Flight

(WONDERFUL MEMORIAL DAY TRIBUTE)
 
 
 This video is about a song called "Angel Flight"... and it is very good!
The song is being performed with "effects." 
Listen to the words of the pilot and the tower, and make sure you sit quietly and listen to the very end...
You will understand why one of the singers said he would be glad to help with the song... if he could stop crying. 

This is beautiful. 
God bless our Veterans!

Air Force Pilot Ace: Honor Iraq War Heroes this Memorial Day‏


Dear Fellow American,

Memorial Day is quickly approaching, and to most Americans, this means the beginning of summer. In reality, it's the one day of the year we dedicate to remembering those who gave all to protect the freedoms we cherish. As you plan your first barbecue of the season and prepare for the warm weather, I urge you to keep in mind the real reason we celebrate Memorial Day: to pay tribute to America's veterans and fallen soldiers.

Throughout my career in the Air Force, I logged more than 800 combat hours in the F-4 Phantom during 339 missions over Southeast Asia. I'm proud to be the only Air Force Pilot Ace of the air war in Vietnam, but what makes me the proudest is knowing that title is the result of many, many devoted people working together. Anyone whose ever served in combat knows someone who gave his our her life for Our Country. I'm certainly no exception. I remember each and every man I served with in Vietnam who did not return home.

This is why I've become involved in the veterans' community and today serve on the advisory board of the American Veterans Center, the organization that coordinates the National Memorial Day Parade in Washington, DC. I'm writing today because this year's parade is our first public opportunity to honor our newest generation of veterans—the young men and women who bravely served in Iraq, sacrificing family relationships, jobs, and economic stability to go off and fight for our country.

Will you join me in paying tribute to our Iraq War veterans—and all of American's veterans and active duty service members—by marching in the National Memorial Day Parade on May 28?
You can't come all the way to Washington, DC, you say? You don't have to travel to take part in this special tribute, because we're holding a virtual parade online! Follow this link to register, select your avatar and join thousands of patriots across our nation to honor America's veterans from the Revolutionary War up to the Iraq War.

After you complete your registration, please make a generous tax-deductible contribution to support the American Veterans Center's efforts throughout the year, including events for wounded veterans at Walter Reed and Bethesda Naval Hospital, programs to educate our youth about the history of America's veterans and their legacy, and the publication of American Valor Quarterly.

Freedom isn't free, but for nearly 70 years, Washington, DC, was without a parade on our Armed Services' most sacred day. In 2005, the American Veterans Center revived the tradition of a Memorial Day parade in our nation's capital, and today it serves two vital civic purposes: to give the general public the opportunity to honor our services members and pay tribute to our veterans, while allowing active duty troops, veterans, and reenactors showcase the sacrifice of all our veterans in an exciting procession of American history the whole family can enjoy.

Whether you live in the Washington Metro Area and plan to attend this year's parade or you live as far away as Hawaii or Alaska, I encourage you to join us on May 28, 2012, to honor America's veterans, including the 4487 America services members who gave their lives in the Iraq War.

Please follow this link to register for the virtual Memorial Day parade
and join thousands of veterans, active duty troops and civilians across America to pay tribute to our veterans. Then please make the most generous, tax-deductible contribution you can afford to the American Veterans Center to support the parade and our activities throughout the year.

With your support and participation in the virtual parade, we'll promote our veterans' legacy, remember those who gave all, and preserve their sacrifices. Thank you in advance.

Sincerely,

R. Steve Ritchie
Brigadier General, U.S. Air Force, Ret.
Marshal, National Memorial Day Parade

P.S. Celebrate Memorial Day 2012 and honor America's veterans and active duty troops by marching in the National Memorial Day Parade—online. Follow this link to register, select your avatar, and join millions of your fellow patriots on May 28, 2012. After you register for the virtual parade, I hope you'll make a generous tax-deductible contribution to support the efforts of the American Veterans Center.


The mission of The American Veterans Center is to preserve the legacy of our veterans and part of the mission is accomplished by communicating the sacrifice that our veterans have made to the public, and in particular, to younger generations.

Contributions to The American Veterans Center are tax-deductible.

Santa Barbara

Santa Barbara
 
The  first picture and the last picture are taken at the beach in Santa Barbara right next to the  pier.


There  is a veterans group that started putting a cross and candle for every  death in Iraq and Afghanistan .


The  amazing thing is that they only do it on the weekends.  They put up  this graveyard and take  it down every weekend.  Guys sleep in the sand next to it and keep   watch over it at night so nobody  messes with it.


Every  cross has the name, rank and D.O.B. and D.O.D.  on it.


Very  moving,  very powerful??? so many young volunteers.  So many  30 to 40 year olds as well.


Amazing  !


Monday Update: a follower of TLR has informed us of the ACLU claim not being true, so we stand corrected and thank them for the information.


 "The beach memorials are erected every Sunday at Santa Barbara, and Santa Monica, California. However, the claims in the message about supposed lawsuits filed by the ACLU are untrue"

Please if anyone can prove this wrong we welcome it!!! 
And we will correct it... period no questions asked just prove it to US All!!!!!
