    Default The Importance of Memorial Day 2013 - Our Tribute to the Fallen Heroes.

    This year, the Tyrs Paladium guild will take our Memorial Day tribute private, once again. We would like to share this thread however, with our veterans, their families and friends, and the entire DDO community.




    The Annual Luminaria Tribute, Fredericksburg, Virginia. Honoring the Fallen



    --**--

    Staff Sgt. Romesha received the Medal of Honor in 2013 for his courageous actions while serving as a Section Leader with Bravo Troop, 3d Squadron, 61st Cavalry Regiment, 4th Brigade Combat Team, 4th Infantry Division during combat operations against an armed enemy at Combat Outpost Keating, Kamdesh District, Nuristan Province, Afghanistan on October 3, 2009.

    A powerful and beautiful video I produced for a previous Memorial Day multi-server event.

    Canadian physician and Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae is popularly believed to have written it on 3 May 1915, after he witnessed the death of his friend, Lieutenant Alexis Helmer, 22 years old, the day before. The poem was first published on 8 December of that year in the London-based magazine Punch.

    DDO's very own Bekki's unforgettable performance of the POW*MIA Remembrance Table ceremony. It's a must listen folks.

    Why have we made our Veteran's Day and Memorial Day tributes public? I'll let Dad answer that one.

    Dad's letter reminder of importance of Memorial Day




    On this Memorial Day, to feel the full effects of the sacrifices our soldiers have made for us, I ask all of you to take just one moment to silently gaze upon the graves in your local cemetery. Each one of those small American Flags (or flag from whatever free nation you are from) represents not only that person’s service to the military, but also their service to each and every one of us. They gave all they had to give, and we owe our freedom, our happiness, and our lives in gratitude.

    i'd like to mention some lines from Halo, which i believe are relatable to this.
    *bows his head in respect*


    Admiral Hood: "For us, the storm has passed... the war is over. But let us never forget those who journeyed into the howling dark and did not return. For their decision required courage beyond measure; sacrifice, and unshakable conviction that their fight... our fight, was elsewhere. They ennobled all of us, and they shall not be forgotten."


    "May the flamin' force be with you!"

    Memorial day again. Oorah to all the active duty Marines out there. Thanks for everything over the years.


    Thanks to all of the service members present and past, thank you to the families of the men and women who serve, without you they couldn't do it...without you they might not feel they needed to.

    I wish all those who see this a lifetime of peace health and happiness and perhaps someday a world without war.

    most of us would like to see such a world.
    but the sad truth about war is that...
    war never changes.

    We'll dedicate our tribute to:



    "A couple years ago, we got news that my brother, Adam Olin Smith, was killed in a helicopter accident over in Afghanistan. Shortly after that, I gave birth to a baby boy and named him Olin to honor my brother. It makes me sad that Olin will never get to meet his uncle, but he'll have plenty of people around to tell him how great Adam was." -nebularose

    Nonsense. Everything changes. The percentage of people who die violently is decreasing. The developed world is much more connected and cautious with its fat peers than it used to be. Conditions and education in undeveloped countries will continue to improve and with it will come fewer wars.

    Will war end forever any time soon? No. But I think a full century with no major conflicts is much closer than you think.

    Can you really look at where we were 50 million years ago, then look at 50 million years in the future and think, "Yeah, everything I consider a societal constant today will exist then. We won't all be dead or back to hunter-gatherers or a space-faring utopia."

    I like your positive outlook, if only it were as infectious as the plague

    glad to see that you're still honoring those who have fallen.
    Since it's gone private, I'll be with ya'll in spirit.

    Thank you to all who have served and to those who have sacrificed their bodies and minds.
