Op-Ed #572 In Recognition of Americas Fallen Patriots and Veterans on Memorial Day

  • Op-Ed #572 In Recognition of Americas Fallen Patriots and Veterans on Memorial Day

By Capt Joseph R. John, May 30, 2022 Op Ed #572

Since General George Washington commanded the Continental Army, forty-two million Americans have served in defense of the Republic under the American Flag.  Over the past 246 years, one million American military personnel have been Killed In Action while serving in combat, and another million and a half have been Wounded In Action.

Each year on Memorial Day weekend, we recognize and honor American Patriots who have given the “last full measure of devotion” in service to the Republic, so their fellow Americans could live their lives free from oppression.  This year we support all Active Duty and Reserve Service members who, for the first time in 246 years, have been undergoing a year-long “Purge” to find and discharge conservative “White Supremacists” from the ranks.   

The Senior Advisor to The Secretary of Defense on Human Capital and Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, Bishop Garrison, implemented a program to indoctrinate all members of the US Armed Forces in Critical Race Theory, while searching out, locating, and discharging “White Supremacists.”  He developed regulations to prevent conservative white “Patriot Extremism” from serving in the US Armed Forces.  Garrison stated that anyone in the US Armed Forces who supported President Donald J. Trump is a racist and must be purged.  

We honor American Combat Veterans who gave their last full measure of devotion to their country, members of the US Armed Forces who are deployed and separated from their loved ones, and the 23 million Veterans who answered the call of duty, served in the defense of the Republic, were Honorably Discharged, and continue to serve their country in so many ways.  

On this Memorial Day weekend, the Republic’s most sacred and cherished Patriotic holiday, Patriotic Americans pay solemnhomage to the thousands of Gold Star Families for the enormity of their sacrifices, the loss of their cherished loved ones!

At one time in their lives, all members of the US Armed Forces wrote a blank check made payable to “The United States of America” for an amount “up to and including their lives.”  Americans should “never forget” the enormity of that sacred pledge and the sacrifice made through the ages by millions of American Patriots who protected and defended the freedoms all Americans enjoy.
