This is a well known photograph of Abraham Lincoln during the Civil War. Taken on October 3, 1862 on the Battlefield of Antietam, it shows Lincoln standing next to Allan Pinkerton (left) and General McClernand Right).This is perhaps the best outdoor portrait of Lincoln extant. The Battle of Antietam was the bloodiest day in American History. There were 23,000 casualties in one day, four times the casualties suffered during the D-Day invasion in June 1944.

sorrow........It happens far more often than we care to think about: American soldiers coming home in flag-draped coffins to mourning loved ones, but an AP photographer was there to grab this particular heartbreaking scene. Here, Ashley Edens is seen collapsing on the coffin of her late 22-year-old husband Army Spc. Jason K. Edens as his body arrived in Nashville, TN - Something to remember this Memorial Day...
Never forget the sacrifices that our military families make. So sad....

For many, it is too late to say, "Thank you, veteran. Welcome home". They've already gone home. But, it's not too late to say it to those truly brave men who are still here, but time is slipping by and we're losing many every day. So, before it is too late, "Thank you, Veteran. Welcome Home." God bless all our military veterans.

Memorial Day, an American holiday observed on the last Monday of May, honors men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military. Originally known as Decoration Day, it originated in the years following the Civil War and became an official federal holiday in 1971. Many Americans observe Memorial Day by visiting cemeteries or memorials, holding family gatherings and participating in parades. Unofficially, at least, it marks the beginning of summer.
God Bless Our Heroes

“Before I went into the military I knew everyone, and everyone knew me. I joined for my family, for my friends, for the people I know, and for the people I don’t. Now, no one wants to see me, no one wants to look at me, and no one wants to know me.” We are a mean and superficial society. I hope this soldier finds some peace.
“Before I went into the military I knew everyone, and everyone knew me.. Before I left everyone I knew, and everyone I didn’t know said I was too handsome, too young. I wasn’t going to let that stop me.. I joined for my family.. for my friends..for the people I know.. and for the people I don’t..
