Madden L. “Buddy” Nelson never saw the light of day the entire three years he was stationed in the European Theater of World War II.

As a member of the Army Air Corps 416th Night Flight Squadron, the Lincoln Parish native literally worked nights readying aircraft for the nighttime missions designed to counter enemy activities under cover of darkness.

Back stateside, Mary Joanne Cavender decided the best way she could serve her country was to join the U.S. Navy WAVES.

Honor those who have fallen in war

Memorial Day to many is the transition from the blooming flowers of spring to the hot days of summer.

School is out and most businesses are closed Monday, which means trips, barbecues and quality time with the family for the weekend.

However, past the memories made with family and the one extra day off, there is a more important meaning to this holiday weekend.

According to www.syracuse.com, since 1775, when our first wartime casualty was recorded, almost 1.2 million people have laid down their lives for our country.

Let us not forget this federal holiday for what it really is.

A Memorial Day for all of us

Rogers, Randy.jpg

There was a stark contrast between my Dad’s war and mine. They had Rosie the Riveter, Glenn Miller, Bob Hope and Betty Grable. We had Jane Fonda, Muhammad Ali, Abbie Hoffman and Country Joe and the Fish. They had Pearl Harbor, Iwo Jima and ticker tape parades. Our returning soldiers had dog feces thrown on them and were spat on.

“It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died. Rather we should thank God that such men lived.”
— General George S. Patton
Did you know 28 burials occur each weekday at Arlington National Cemetery? Or did you know that more than 300,000 of the 1,196,93 total war casualties are buried at Arlington?
Probably not.
Men and women alike have been paying the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom for hundreds of years.
Yet there are some of this new generation of Americans that have gone on to stomp on a flag that thousands have died for.
