Honor the fallen.
Please See Commenter Mike’s comment. Blog Post will follow… http://www.honorandremember.org
On this Memorial Day we should all try to find ways to honor those who have sacrificed so much for our country since it’s conception. Fallen troops and wounded warriors come to mind for me, but this morning while I was looking at Michelle Malkin’s blog this item on Pat Dollard’s blog stood out. This is a photo of 1st Lt. Dustin Shumney and his family prior to January 2005. Dustin, after having served with the Marines in the battle of Fallujah, died in a helicopter crash during a sandstorm along with 30 other troops. He was a highly decorated Marine and left his wife Julie a widow, and his three children fatherless.
Julie Shumney has dealt with her loss for three years. She has relied on God and has taken on the mission of wanting to help other families in her position in such a way as to honor her fallen husband. Unfortunately, she encountered a man, posing as a minister who along with another man, bilked her out of $57,000 on a fund raising scam. Her honorable intentions got her in trouble because of the actions of dishonorable men. What is left for us to do on this day of remembrance? We can honor Lt. Shumney, by helping his widow and family. You can read the full story here and if you are so moved, donate to helping her through this trying time. Rest in Peace 1st Lt Shumney, your family is cared for and your duty done. Semper Fi.

Founders’ Quote Daily”These are the times that try men’s souls. The summer soldier
and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the
service of his country; but he that stands it now, deserves the
love and thanks of man and woman.”– Thomas Paine (The American Crisis, No. 1, 19 December 1776)
