Memorial Day: All Gave Some, But Some Gave All


“Memorial Day is hard… It hurts more than any other day. I can’t exactly say why, other than the obvious, but there is something about it that I just, I feel.”  –Antonette Hornsby, Gold Star spouse

It’s been three years since Antonette’s husband, CW3 Brian Hornsby, died after his helicopter was shot down over Afghanistan. Those who die in service to our country leave behind more than their legacy–they leave behind a family. This Memorial Day, before the barbeques and parades, take a moment to remember the men and women who have given their lives for our freedom.

For families like Antonette’s, today is more than just another day. Remember CW3 Hornsby, and all the other lives lost in service.

Together We’re Stronger.

    My Dad served in WWII as a Chief Gunners Mate aboard the destroyer Warrington. He was wounded severely in 1943 and consequently was discharged from service in 1944. The Warrington with most of the crew sank in September 1944. Dad survived but paid in pain for that survival every day until 1989, when he died. I just read a short tribute to our gallant veterans that moved me to tears. It is at https://wcmcclure.wordpress.com/2015/05/24/first-step/ . God Bless America.
