Thank you to all of the brave service men and women who have sacrificed so much, some all, in order so we can live free in the best damn country in the world!

Today I'll raise my tongs & brews in your honor.

Now off to light my big green buddy!


  • I second that.

    Happily egging on my original large BGE since 1996... now the owner of 6 eggs. Call me crazy, everyone else does!

    This was posted by Happy Hog Memorial Day 2008. War specific, but the men and women of all services and all wars are being honored this day. SE Asia, USN '67-'71.


    By Rita J. Lammers

    Men and women died in honor
    In a land so far away
    How do we explain the conflict
    To the children of today
    When they look at us with wonder
    "Tell us did we win the war
    All these lives are gone forever
    What was all the fighting for"

    Drop down on a knee and tell them
    All the Vets of Vietnam
    Fought this fight for others freedom
    No regard for their own harm

    All the names upon this wall
    These people did not die in vain
    For freedom’s price throughout the world
    Is living on in each one’s name

    Valiantly they fought the fight
    In that place across the sea
    Sacrificed their lives so bravely
    Trying to make others free

    They did not question should I go
    They served with willingness and grace
    To try and bring a taste of freedom
    To another land and place

    We know from all their sacrifice
    It takes a special kind of heart
    To fight and help their fellow man
    To care that much and do their part

    And if you do not understand
    The price we pay for freedom yet
    You’ll find the answer living still
    Within a Vietnam War Vet

    Veterans day is for all veterans. All that they have done is appreciated.

    Memorial Day is for those who served and paid the ultimate price. Many have died in order for us to enjoy our freedom. They will not be forgotten.
