What This Memorial Squad is Doing For Deceased Veterans Is Absolutely Beautiful

Published

With the world seemingly on fire and folks so divided over their political ideologies that they’re willing to stoop to all manner of evil, wicked lows to express themselves, it’s always a good idea to take a break from talking about the darkness in the world and let ourselves be reminded that there’s still a lot of good happening here too.

For instance, here’s a story about a Memorial Squad who did something awesome for a deceased veteran, putting on display that there’s still genuine patriotism and love for one another alive and well in America.

George Anthos spent just three years in the Army, from 1955 to 1957, before returning home to Illinois and pursuing a profession as a hair dresser.

But at age 83, he puts on a military-style uniform every Tuesday and reports to Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery near Joliet.

Since 2003, he has been a part of its Memorial Squad — men and women who provide military honors for veterans buried there.

“We have a code in the military of ‘no man left behind,’” he said. “It’s my way of bringing veterans home for the last time.”

About three dozen people accompany veterans on their last journey. They present the colors, play taps, fire ceremonial gun salutes and present U.S. flags to survivors.

The cemetery, which is the only active national one in the Chicago area, opened in 1999 on the grounds of the former Joliet Arsenal. More than 50,000 veterans, their spouses and certain other relatives are buried there, in graves or columbaria. The federal government pays for the burial, the marker and the burial flag.

Anthos said Mondays and Fridays are typically the busiest days. The rites take place at three committal shelters, not the grave sites.

The brave men and women who make up our armed forces are some of the finest folks this great nation has to offer, and as such, it’s always wonderful to see them getting the honor they are due.

Too often, in our society where leftism is running amok, people like to belittle our military and mock these folks and the sacrifices they have made for their freedoms. Just look at the NFL National Anthem protests for example.

This ought not be. Be sure to thank a veteran you know or one you see out and about, for having the courage to voluntarily serve their country and protect your liberty.

Psaki When Asked Why Joe Didn’t Wear Mask After Signing EO: ‘Bigger Issues to Worry About’

She’s going to be making plenty of excuses.

It is going to be a trip covering Joe Biden’s “presidency.” On Day 1, the guy signs an Executive Order mandating masks must be worn on federal property, then decides to not wear one later that same night at the Lincoln Memorial. When asked why that happened, new Press Secretary Jen Psaki dodged. Go figure. Didn’t Joe (and every liberal, for that matter) blast Trump whenever he didn’t wear a mask?

While Biden signed executive orders meant to combat the coronavirus outbreak, AP White House reporter Zeke Miller pressed him about his previously-announced goal of having 100 million Americans vaccinated within the first 100 days in office. Miller asked whether the bar should be set “higher” to encourage even more Americans to get vaccinated. WATCH: https://twitter.com/tomselliott/status/1352349221161197568

Report: President Trump Reportedly Thinking of Forming New ‘Patriot Party’

Has a ring to it, no?

Before you get too excited about that headline (thinking the GOP is done with Donald Trump no longer at the helm) imagine all the negative aspects that would come with forming a new party. 1.) It would divide the Republican Party in two. 2.) Having another major party would split the vote, meaning Democrats keep on winning. It’s not the greatest idea, if he’s serious about it. What Trump should do is start his own TV network and social media platform ASAP. MAGA TV. You’re welcome. Anyway, check this out… The outlet, citing inside sources reportedly familiar with the matter, said that the president would like to call the party the “Patriot Party.” “Trump discussed the matter with several aides and other people close to him last week,” the outlet reported. “The president said he would want to call the new party the ‘Patriot Party,’ the people said.” The Daily Wire reported that “top pro-Trump Republicans” close to the administration said that it was a “bad idea” and would effectively split the Republican Party so that it would be nearly impossible for Republicans or otherwise to defeat the Democratic Party in elections.
