Remembering those who fell in the line of service

We take this day to honor the memory of those who died while in the military service of our country.

Anyone who would like to call out the name and circumstances of such individuals is invited to do so.

Freedom is not free.

    Maybe I’m mistaken, but I see Memorial Day as a day to honor and give thanks to not only those who died while serving their country but also all who have served honorably…many who have since died for related or nonrelated reasons and many who still live. I would like to mention those from El Paso and the surrounding area who were part of the valiant Company E, 131st Infantry, 36th Division, mostly Chicanos, a great many who died at the Battle of the Rapido in Italy during WWII. A beautiful memorial stands at the Chalio Acosta Park along Delta Street.

    Did not fall in line of service but saw heavy battle and casualties in South Pacific My Dad sat on rail of Chester and took pictures of my Uncle sitting on the rail of The Randolph taking pictures of each other while the Armistice is signed to end WWII. Thanks Dad and Uncle Twain. Thanks Harry S Truman.
