Memorial Day–A Day of Remembrance

Filed under: Uncategorized — danielhite @ 4:19 pm

Today, we attended the first annual Memorial Day Remembrance at the newly renovated Soldiers Memorial in downtown St. Louis. Names of 554 active duty soldiers who died since the Vietnam War were read and will be engraved on the beautiful “Court of Honor” memorial in front of the Museum. Sparsely attended as it was, there was one glaring omission in the program. I have never attended any memorial service, military or civilian, that did not include a prayer. It was gravely missed. With all the beautiful renovations and upgrades since the MO Historical Society assumed control of the Memorial, I would hope that Missouri’s spiritual heritage and its traditional foundation and support of our military heritage would not also become casualties of the current cultural war of political correctness. Hopefully, this was a simple oversight and not a planned omission. May God continue to bless America, I pray.

Here is the program:
