Memorial day – ‘Arlington’


Remembering all those who have given so much so that we can be free. Best wishes to everyone for an enjoyable weekend with friends and family. I only recently heard this song, and so appropriate for today.

Official video of Trace Adkins’s Arlington from the album Songs About Me. Buy It Here: http://smarturl.it/qqqphp
“Arlington” is sung from the viewpoint of a soldier, killed in battle and buried at Arlington National Cemetery. It was inspired by United States Marine Corps Corporal Patrick Nixon, who died in battle in 2003.

    Today is a solemn day. I can only hope that Americans pause for at least a few moments so as to consider the meaning of this day.

    Noticed on some site this morning about some town in PA that because of a decades old city ordinance will not be doing a 21 gun salute (with blanks) on Memorial Day. They’ve done it before years past.
    I hope no one takes this in a way I didn’t intend. No irreverence meant.
    One uncle served in N. Africa, one in the Philippines. Neither lost their sense of humor at their end times.
    Can you imagine O in the video of this song you’ve posted?
    My uncs would have laughed at this…
