Americans are more than ready for some fun. With Memorial Day 2021 just around the corner, we’re all ready to have a little barbecue, maybe open the swimming pool, just hang out and enjoy the company of family and friends we love.
And oh yes, there is that little detail of having an extra day to sleep.
Memorial Day can have a little extra meaning for us this year. As the Budweiser commercial says: “2020 was a lemon year.”
We are all definitely looking for a little break for our vacation weekend. But it’s so easy to forget the real meaning of why we paused on Memorial Day.
This Memorial Day weekend:
– Think of those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country.

We can enjoy our downtime, our freedom, thanks to the men and women of the US military who made the ultimate sacrifice to keep the United States of America the land of freedom and opportunity.
And not just for those of us who were lucky enough to be born in America, but for people from all over the world who wish themselves and their children a better life and very often risk their lives to come here because they know it’s worth fighting.
On this Memorial Day weekend, we, along with all Americans, commemorate the tremendous sacrifice of those who died to keep us free. pic.twitter.com/ND2Bh0YCcj

The American soldier
American citizens know that the American soldier is a unique breed. They go where they are commanded. They carry out the missions they are commanded to do.
They are leaving their own lives and their families. Those we remember on Memorial Day have left these lives and families forever.
But every hero we remember and honor on Memorial Day, from those who fought in the War of Independence to gain our independence as a nation, to Afghanistan and Iraq, they knew a return to theirs Families was not possible.
They knew it was part of the job, but they left anyway.
They left anyway.
The freedom and freedom of the nation was so important.
It’s an honor to join @USArmyOldGuard for their annual Flags-In-Tradition. On this Memorial Day weekend, please remember our brothers and sisters in arms who made the ultimate sacrifice in service to the nation. We stand on their shoulders and strive every day to uphold their legacy. pic.twitter.com/yDeZIGn4PG

Being a soldier, not just a job
Ask anyone who has served in any branch of the US military and most will tell you it is not just a job, it is a calling, a sense of duty to one’s own country. And in the case of the US military, they are the most elite military the world has ever seen.
They are the best trained, best equipped, and best trained military in the world. There are so many who vilify our soldiers and our military. Our Vietnam veterans had to endure being labeled “baby killers” and worse.
The people who speak badly of the men and women who wear the uniform obviously have no understanding of what it means to be called a U.S. soldier, aviator, sailor, or marine.
But Americans who love their country know what it means.
And so we pause to remember their sacrifice, we pause to comfort their families, and we pause to remember not only the privilege but also the responsibility of what it means to To be american.
While we flip the burgers, inflate our flippers and enjoy the company of our loved ones, let’s stop for a moment and thank those who made this possible.
And when Memorial Day is over and we roll out of bed to go back to work on Tuesday, we remember that too. And every day after that.
For everyone who made the ultimate sacrifice. God bless each of them. Memorial Day and every day after pic.twitter.com/iQqjzxJVTC
