Honoring The Fallen Beyond Memorial Day

Honoring The Fallen Beyond Memorial Day

By: Joseph M. Lenard

To dear Friend SonnyE who wrote “Don’t call it a Holiday” (and everyone else, especially our mis-educated youth, who need this message of honor, respect, condolences, hope for healing, more…):


To ALL: Did you HONOR THE FALLEN last weekend, or SNOWFLAKE just prancing about ignored those that gave you that weekend of Freedom?!?! Though many may have actually been drinking Bud-Light as with #BIDENflation and #BIDENrecession may have been the only Cases of Beer (marked down, deep discounts) people could afford?

Minor qualm regarding what Sonny actually said versus the clear intent – it indeed is AN OFFICIAL DECLARED HOLIDAY, however… NOT an Anniversary…

And add FEDERAL HOLIDAYS ACT ((Officially “The Uniform Monday Holiday Act” (Pub. L. 90-363, 82 Stat. 250, enacted June 28, 1968)) which moved the Remembrances or Commemorations to Monday observances and long Holiday-weekend creations #TheMoreYouKnow #TheRestOfTheStory) to long list of Laws/things (like 17th Amendment (final nail in 10th Amendment and States Rights and the Founders check-and-balance of State/Federal power)) need be repealed (as had reasonable “intentions” when proposed, MAJOR UNINTENDED CONSEQUENCES, like all our Holidays now mostly FORGOTTEN as to why we have then with SNOWFLAKES prancing about with no clue why/how they have the LONG WEEKEND OF FREEDOM)….

Remember Memorial Day while indeed an Official Holiday is NOT an Anniversary (per se) but a REMEMBRANCE and/or COMMEMORATION day (originally known as “Decoration Day” when Civil War widows laid flowers on Graves of our Civil War fallen (North and South alike, as part of healing and reconciliation (forgiveness – those we lost, as well as honoring the sacrifice to those who may have taken the Lives of our Fallen (and why Statues of both North/South Leaders post-War (so idiots could/would learn from History, but now those morons just want to act like Taliban and destroy History references)) commemorated as part of reconciliation, healing, trying to bring our Nation back together again))!!!!!

And I say the same thing about 9/11…. DO NOT DARE CALL IT AN ANNIVERSARY, “Anniversaries” are for HAPPY THINGS and the commemorations are indeed either COMMEMORATION DAYS or REMEMBRANCE DAYS!!!

Remember our WORDS HAVE MEANING! We have to be more careful in our word-choices. Cannot be as loose and warping of intent of word meanings as the Left. Holiday and Anniversary are upbeat, positive implication, words (like for 4th Of July Celebration of our Freedoms, though yes too we honor those who fought a Revolution for us to Celebrate such Freedom) – versus Commemorations and Remembrances.

Gone, not forgotten. Forever in our Hearts!!! Far too many have given that “last final measure” of sacrifice. We are failing our Nation and our own Children not properly Educating them!!! In the USA the Indoctrination factories (and other supposed FREE SOCIETY systems) are peddling Radicalism, Raunch/peRversion (tRans, pedophilia), Racism (cRt), and anti-ameRicanism – the new “R’s” – to our Entitled/lazy, participation tRophy overblown self-esteem buffoons, know nothing brats; meanwhile China is teaching their Children the traditional “R’s” of Reading, wRiting, aRithmetic, histoRy, scRience (see what I did there, cuz our kids are so dumb they wouldn’t know the R doesn’t belong there), biRology (not fake gendeRism), honoR, Respect, woRk-ethic, etc… Americans taught only the flaws of our past (when/where taught History at all, taught to Hate America so Leftists can “fundamentally transform” us to another failed State), not the countless great accomplishments (and how the World would look so different without her).

Thank you too…

first responders (Corrections, Dispatch, EMS/EMT, Fire, Law Enforcement, Military).

those helping others through charitable pursuits (please help pay it forward – see: http://TerrorStrikes.info/charities). [includes several 1st Responders and Military Charities]

And, of course, thoughts and prayers to family of so many of those we’ve lost. Rest in peace, your memory lives on in us all.

Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. (Matthew 5:14)

Rest-in-peace, you knew the horrors of War, and we owe you a debt that can never be paid. Have you forgotten?? Are you actually doing things (that matter, of substance) to preserve Freedoms here at Home?!?! You Shall Be Known By Your Fruits (not your online, empty-rhetoric, virtue-signaling). We don’t know them all, but we owe them all.

Always remember: #PrinciplesNotPersonalities

And, now, having said all this, I am thinking I’ll be closing any/all future articles with a tribute to our Fallen (in so many different senses of the word/term) that allow me to be Free to speak my mind and for you to be able to read my pieces without threat of Leftists Gestapo (yet) from beating down your door for (Orwellian style) WRONG THINK!

And, yes, again this past Monday was Memorial Day observed (see “There is a difference” image atop this article) and official day May 30th, continued remembrance for those “died while serving” – I must add that we need to remember those suffering, could be put to death any moment, caught and held captive behind enemy lines (in many Nations, in/of declared and undeclared Wars and battles) and even (The Covenant with) our Allies left-behind BRING THEM HOME ALIVE rather than just a transport to Arlington…

    Fort Bragg Renamed As Biden DOD Pushes To Remove Confederate Memorabilia!

    {More lunatic Leftist destruction of American history and culture, all in the name of pandering to Blacks and “white guilt” libtards!}

    The Department of Defense continued its drive to remove all traces of individuals linked to the Confederate States of America. A North Carolina Army base that had been named “Fort Bragg” since 1918 was Friday renamed “Fort Liberty.” The Biden administration made the name change to renounce association with Confederate General Braxton Bragg.

    The Daily Wire further reported:

    The U. S. Army base Fort Bragg in North Carolina is being renamed to Fort Liberty in accordance with the Biden Defense Department’s push to scrub the military of Confederate memorabilia, garnering harsh pushback from some veterans.

    The renaming occurred in a small ceremony on Friday at the base, with signs being changed and the fort’s website edited to reflect the new name “Fort Liberty,” which was chosen out of 188 names by the Naming Commission. The base has been named after Confederate General Braxton Bragg since 1918.

    The removal and/or replacement of Confederate statues and memorabilia, such as the name “Fort Bragg,” has been the subject of debate for decades. The Fort’s website attempts to assuage the concerns that many veterans have that their heritage is being erased by the renaming, explaining to veterans:

    “No act can take away from the heritage this installation’s service members created while stationed here or anywhere else, serving our nation. We understand the original name’s prestige in the eyes of some of the Soldiers, Families, and our nation, was built upon the bravery and dedication of those who served here, not because of an obscure, incompetent, ill-tempered Confederate general’s legacy. Nevertheless, our nation’s representatives felt a need to move on from that name and put the redesignation into law, and we are abiding by that law.”

    Despite the fort’s reassurances, many soldiers who serve at the fort or have served previously are heavily critical of this decision, as many see it as a part of their history, with many feeling their service has been dishonored as the Fort where they served is being erased by bureaucrats in Washington.

    This sentiment is shared by soldiers of all races, as black Army veteran George Postell Jr., who served at the base for more than four years, explains, per the AP, “I shared my blood, and I know a lot of my other brothers that did the same for the namesake of Fort Bragg,” Postell said. “To me, it will always be Fort Bragg, no matter what they call it.”

    U. S. Army veteran and president of the Fayetteville chapter of the NAACP James Buxton Jr. agrees with the renaming but calls the replacement name “Liberty” an “off the wall” decision. Buxton had a creative solution: To keep the original name of Fort Bragg and instead dedicate the fort to Union General and accomplished U. S. representative Edward Bragg as a compromise that both retains the historical significance of Fort Bragg while acknowledging the suffering that that name might have caused to many African Americans.

    This is just the first base to be rebranded by the Naming Commission appointed by Congress with the ultimate goal of renaming nine military bases across the country featuring Confederate soldiers and generals as part of their titles. The project is estimated to cost about $62.4 million, according vice chairman of the Commission and retired Army Brigadier General Ty Seidule.

    According to The American Battlefield Trust, Braxton Bragg was a key figure in the Confederate war effort in the Deep South, scoring minor victories in the early war against the Union in battles such as Chickamauga and Stones River, but rarely scoring a decisive blow against the Union. Bragg resigned as a general in the Confederate army as he suffered a crippling defeat in the Battle of Chattanooga, removing any possibility for Confederate control in Tennessee and losing thousands of men. Bragg served the rest of the war as a military advisor and plantation owner, where he owned over 100 slaves.

  2. FYI, this article was mentioned on several WAAM Radio (1600AM Ann Arbor MI) today, but most notably/importantly was on MOMENT OF CLARITY (that Derek filling in for Pastor Rick last week’s Show one of the two embedded here-in) where Pastor Rick was thinking EXACTLY along the lines as me and this article and dedicated his MOC Show today as his follow-up to having missed last week to discuss OUR FALLEN further. You can check out his Sat 6/3 Show at https://tinyurl.com/MOCArchives starting Sun afternoon it should be available online that I hope you’ll check out as well as the MOC and YAH WAAM Shows contained in this piece.

  3. I reached out and let SonnyE know the article is up, who responded…

    SonnyE: My reason for not calling it a “Holiday” is in part due to the way I was raised by my parents. Both at Pearl Harbor shortly after Japanese attacked it. Every Memorial Day we traveled to the cemeteries in Santa Monica to visit. It was a life lesson and reinforced why you do not say Happy Holiday, nothing “Happy” about our fallen Soldiers. A time of Remembrance and stark reflections of what the cost of Freedom really is. Thank You for the recognition.
