The meaning of Memorial Day can tend to get lost in the shuffle, so we couldn’t think of a better way to share just how much our servicemen and servicewomen give up in defense of their country — their futures, their loves, their very lives – than in this extremely poignant and touching blog post on Getty Images blog.
There’s a high cost associated with our freedoms and these brave men and women who have given their lives – as well as their loved ones – know the cost all too well. We want to honor the bravery and sacrifice of so many Americans and our allies who came before us, to secure the safety and liberties we now enjoy.
Thank you for giving your lives so that we might live.

Very powerful photo.

Yes, certainly remember those who died in war. But which 20th-21th Century wars? Korea? Vietnam? Iraq? Afghanistan? Aside from WWII which of those wars of choice were justified? And why have those civilian leaders who took us needlessly into war(e.g. Vietnam and Iraq) ever been held accountable?
Thats not the point of Memorial Day though, you can question those things the other 364 days of the year, but on Memorial Day we should honor the people who have fought for our freedom.
no politics Murray – but you are right – Truman Kennedy got us into wars were the USA was never attacked and the enemy posed no threat.
This day is for the brave men who fought, not the cowards who shuffled the pens that signed their death warrants.
God bless all the men and women who have ever served this great country.
Powerful photo. We take so much for granted. God bless the fallen and those who still protect us and their families.
