Today Is The 70th Anniversay Of D-Day – ‘The Fallen’ Project Memorializes Soldiers Who Fell At Normandy Beach

For many of us, the toll of war is something we only think about on Memorial Day, or Veteran's Day, or when we hear about the death of a soldier in Iraq or Afghanistan. But, fallen soldiers aren't just names on a wall, or represented by statues in Washington, D.C. They are actual people, and a group of artists an ocean away, want to show us all what the toll of war really looks like.

Mother of Fallen Marine Uses Uniforms to Make Memorial Bears for Military Families

Lisa Freeman's son, Matthew, died in the line of duty in Afghanistan in 2009. Two days before his death, Matthew told his mother, “Mom, the kids would rather have pens and paper more than anything, even food or water. Would you please start a collection and send them to me?” Now, in addition to gathering pens and paper, she's also hand-sewing Matthew Bears for families of fallen soldiers, using the uniforms of each person as part of The Matthew Freeman Project.

This Is Why We Celebrate Memorial Day [VIDEO]

Memorial Day weekend is the unofficial, official start to the summer.  There's the Balloon Fest, and family cookouts, and a three day weekend!  But there is a reason we call it Memorial Day.  This is the reason.  I could go on and on about this clip, but watching it - and you'll need a box of Kleenex when you do - answers any questions about war, fallen heroes, and why we honor our dead.

Help Us Thank Our Troops This Veteran’s Day With A Letter From Home

I was looking through letters and emails yesterday that Ryan and I wrote back and forth while he did his 3 tours in Iraq.  They were filled with everyday stuff, how we went to brunch before church on Sunday, celebrated someone's birthday, and so on, and so on.  I asked Ryan one time if it was hard to hear what was going on at home, but he said no, that's what he wanted to hear, because that is what he was fighting for.  Ryan is out of the Army now, but there are troops who still need to know that we are back home, thinking of them, and thanking them for fighting for our way of life.  Please, please, please, help us show thank them!
