From My Front Porch to You

Hello Everyone,
On this Memorial Day, or Remembrance Day as it once was called, let us honor those who served our country.  My husband, father, and father-in-law all proudly served. To them, and all of the men and women who wear a uniform, I say thank you.
There are more verses to Taps, these are my favorites.

Day is done, Gone the sun,
From the lake, From the hill,
From the sky.
All is well, Safely rest,
God is nigh.
Go to sleep, Peaceful sleep,
May the Soldier or Sailor,
God keep.
On the land or the deep,
Safe in sleep.
Love, good night, Must thou go,
When the day, And the night
Need thee so?
All is well. Speedeth all
To their rest
Safely rest,


  1. Living veterans are honored, as a whole, on Armed Forces Day and Veterans Day. Service members who lost their lives while actively serving in war or conflict are remembered on Memorial Day, a solemn occasion to reflect on those who perished.
