Honor Your Military Member on Patch

Memorial Day is a time to remember military members we have lost but it is also important to recognize those still with us.

While Memorial Day is a time to reflect on the many soldiers we have lost over the centuries, it is also a time to consider the many troops still fighting today and those who have honorably served. Help us honor all of our community's military, present or passed, by adding their names and photos to this article. 

In the comments below, please leave his or her name, rank and years of service, and if you'd like to include any biographical information, please do. 

You can add a photo to the gallery above by clicking Upload Photos and Videos beneath the photo that is already there. 

Thank you to all our service men and women who have fought and are currently fighting for our country and our freedom.

Remember the crew of the USS Scorpion all 99 men lost May 22, 1968. "There is a port of no return, where ships may ride at anchor for a little space. And then some starless night the cable slips, leaving only an eddy at the mooring place. Gulls veer no longer, Sailor rest your oar. No tangled wreckage will be washed ashore." Hand Salute

As a military veteran, I respectfully disagree that Memorial Day is a day to remember those still with us. We have Veteran's Day, and Armed Forces Day for those active- and reserve-duty personnel. Memorial Day is to remember those that gave their lives in service of their country. And, their families should be in our thoughts, as well. How are they coping? With the spiritual loss of a loved one? Are they secure in their living? That fallen veteran may have been their only source of income. Will their children have the stabilization they would have enjoyed, had their parent survived? I thank you for considering that we should be remembered, but that can be for another day; TWO other days.

God Bless all who have served and continue to serve our country!

Thank you Ted. I believe that we do honor the fallen on those other two days as well. Why not honor those who serve and those who have given all on all three days?
