They Gave the Last Full Measure! Pray for the Fallen Who Died in Service to God, Family, and Country.


My dad lost many of his classmates in the attack on Pearl Harbor. I thank God he wasn't on the Arizona or the only one of the ten children he and my mom reared would be the oldest, my brother Ray, who was in utero that day. May God have mercy on all those we remember today. I plan to visit a cemetery and say a Hail Mary at the graves of those who died in battle in any of our wars. May the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.

Thank God, and thank God for all of our lost military members, and those who serve now.

My dad, on his deathbed (he died peacefully), really wanted me to understand the importance of the order: God then Family then Country. Never get them out of order. Semper fi!
