Memorial Day: A Day Never To Be Forgotten

May 31st, 2021

Memorial Day is always on a Monday the last one of May each year.

It is the day we honor those who made the greatest sacrifice of dying for our country so we could remain a free people and live under the United States Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

This focuses on the United States first battle in Vietnam.

Our men in helicopters thought they were ready, they weren’t.

The War in Afghanistan

The War in Iraq

The War in Iraq was not without dissent from many segments in our country, the government, General Colin Powell among others.

Yes, Saddam used gas to kill the Kurds in Northern Iraq but many felt that this was a bridge too far.

On March 19, 2003, the United States, along with coalition forces primarily from the United Kingdom, initiates war on Iraq.

Just after explosions began to rock Baghdad, Iraq’s capital, U.S. President George W. Bush announced in a televised address, “At this hour, American and coalition forces are in the early stages of military operations to disarm Iraq, to free its people and to defend the world from grave danger.”

President Bush and his advisors built much of their case for war on the idea that Iraq, under dictator Saddam Hussein, possessed or was in the process of building weapons of mass destruction.

Hostilities began about 90 minutes after the U.S.-imposed deadline for Saddam Hussein to leave Iraq or face war passed.

The first targets, which Bush said were “of military importance,” were hit with Tomahawk cruise missiles from U.S. fighter-bombers and warships stationed in the Persian Gulf.

In response to the attacks, Republic of Iraq radio in Baghdad announced, “the evil ones, the enemies of God, the homeland and humanity, have committed the stupidity of aggression against our homeland and people.”

For all of you who have lost members of your families and friends I’m with you. I lost a very close childhood friend.
