Land of the Free, Home of the Brave

All gave some, some gave all

 

by Johanna Vogt - May 30, 2016

During the Civil War, there were over 600,000 soldiers who were killed in action. Almost every community in every state suffered the loss of a loved one. After the war ended, the Grand Army of the Republic, designated a special day to decorate the graves of the fallen with flowers. Since then, many more have died for our freedom.

According to statistics posted on Wikipedia, during the First World War, 116,516 men died. During World War 2, over 400,000 men gave their lives, during the Korean War, over 36,000 men fell in the line of duty, while over 4,700 of them are still unaccounted for. And during the Vietnam war over 200,000 men and women died serving our country.

In recent conflicts, thousands more have given their lives defending the freedom that many of us have taken for granted. Men and women are still giving their lives for our freedom today. They are true heroes and they will not be forgotten. This is the land of the free and the home of the brave.

Thank you for watching and have a blessed Memorial Day.
