They Served With Honor 2011 / Veterans Day

Those who expect to reap the blessings of freedom must undergo the fatigue of supporting it. - Thomas Paine 

This poem is dedicated to the men and women of The United States Navy and Coast Guard  - It was written in memory of my Uncle Michael Harber Norris, who started in the Navy and retired from the Coast Guard, who died in 2005. God Bless Our Veterans.

The Sailor

-By Dawn Boone-

 

Most of us are content

to keep our feet upon the ground.

Yet, others feel the need to soar and fly as fast as sound.

Then there is the sailor, who is content upon the sea.

He doesn't run or lose patience.

He knows where he should be.

It may take time and weather, some storms may block his way.

The sailor checks his compass - "What will I see today?"

He always finds adventures. In new places, far and near.

He is in unknown waters, and yet he feels no fear.

The sailor checks the winds - "Today it may be rough."

He braces himself for storms, he has seen quite enough.

He watches the sun and horizon, as they slowly fade away.

The sailor checks his chart and smiles - "I am going home today."

Veterans Day celebrated at Veterans Park in Bartlett

David Horne, Navy Veteran and Veterans Memorial Vision founder welcomed everyone to the event

Each year since the Veterans Ceremony has been held at the Veterans Park in Bartlett the crowd has grown. This year may have been the largest crowd yet. Bartlett holds a special place in its heart for Veterans. The entire city has a respect and a reverence for the men and women who have put their lives on hold, and on the line, to ensure our freedom and way of life. Our World War II Veterans are leaving us now, and it is important that we honor them at every opportunity. Veterans Day is a perfect day to say "Thank You" to those who served in that war and all wars that have preceded and followed.

Way to go, Sean!

Lance Corporal Sean P. Dial, United States Marine, from Bartlett, lost his foot and lower leg to an IED on Nov. 3, 2010 in Afghanistan, the Lance Corporal has underwent multiple surgeries and many procedures. His good spirits and prayers from loved ones have kept him focused while he has finished his rehabilitation at Walter Reed Hospital over the past year. This past November 4, Corporal Dial attended the Marine Corps Ball in Washington, D.C. Dressed in his "Blues" I asked him to send me a picture of his Purple Heart. I thought I would share it with the you.
