Tribute to Our Soldiers

On Memorial Day, sending THANKS and GRATITUDE
to those who are or have bravely served our country.

The images are vintage postcards published about 1909
by Raphael Tuck & Sons,
"Decoration Day" Series of Post Cards, No. 158.

The sentiments are printed on the face of this postcard series 
but the message rings true today as well.




And never may they rest unsung
While Liberty can find a tongue.



For us their precious lives they gave,
For Freedom's sacred cause they died.

Their Memory shines like a radiant star
O'er the land they died to save.


Ah! Never shall the land forget
How gushed the life-blood of the brave!

Let the stars and stripes be waving
O'er their generous sacrifice.


And blazoned on the scroll of fame
Shall shine each martyred soldier's name.


Until next time, live and love well.



This week I'll be participating in these events:
What's It Wednesday at Ivy and Elephants
Share Your Cup at Daily Cup of Mrs. Olson
