Memorial Day

Those Now Gone

          by Roger W Hancock   

Fallen Servicemen,

for country fought; liberty, freedom,

the primary reason.


They gave themselves,

that we be free


Fathers, mothers,

sisters, and brothers; our dearly departed,

life for country given.


Families broken,

for liberty.


Veterans who served,

and lived to tell; the horrors, and risks,

now sleep in peace.


Served their country,

for our security.


Unknown Soldier, MIA,

remembrance our way, to honor you as well,

victims of a warriors hell.


Served, now lost that,

our lives be free.


Sleep now Sleep tight

rest now, duty done, price paid in life or death. The vigilance now be ours.

    Thank-you…..excellent job, as usual. With all the stores running sales, most people forget what this day is really about.

    Happy Memorial Day!
    To ALL our veterans, past & present, alive, wounded, disabled, or fallen, thank you for your service from a fellow veteran.
    All gave some. Some gave all. . . . . Freedom isn’t free.

    Well I can hear the Dodger crowd giving the ‘business’ to Roid Boy Braun. I wish I was there to add to it.

  10. trublu4ever says:

    Andre’s bat has the magic touch tonight!

  11. vl4eccjr says:

    CRAP!! You can’t throw right down the middle at the MLB level!

    What the hell…..this ump really sucks!

  20. vl4eccjr says:

    Walk off time.

  21. nedisajerk says:

    The Brewers bullpen only have 8 saves 2nd worst in the NL.

  22. trublu4ever says:

    Ugh…tough one!

  23. oldbrooklynfan says:

    The Dodges lost a close one tonight, had trouble solving Marcum and the Brewer bullpen. I hope everyone had a pleasant Memorial day.

  25. nedisajerk says:

    Former Dodgers and bday boy Wade just gave up a walk off to Trumbo suck that he should still be in our bullpen. Welcome home Kemp and it just to bad we could’ve win tonight and kept the Giants from getting a game.

    Dylan Hernandez twitter

    James Loney calls for changes in umpiring, including use of robots.

    I think everyone agree but what’s next? Everyone that’s not a power hitting homeruns guy can hit off of a tee.
