Memorial Day Tribute on Military Mom Talk Radio

Join us today for a tribute to our military and our fallen heroes.  For Memorial Day, we are spending a little time reflecting on and remembering our fallen heroes.

So many artists have beautifully put thoughts and emotions to music, so we want to share some with you.

Featured today are Rushlow Harris’ Bagpipes Cryin, a song by Kevin Costner’s Modern West that was adopted by the Gold Star Mothers as tribute to the fallen soldiers of the Chinook, G.I. Girl by Dani Vitany, and David Ball’s Riding With Private Malone.

We’ll share a moving narrative by Robin and her son, Ross Boyd, and we wrap it up with Some Gave All by Billy Ray Cyrus.

Also on today’s show we’ll revisit our chat with two guests, Lori Bell and author Nancy Kennedy.

Military Monument Unveiled in New Hampshire

The images of more than 60 members of the U.S. Army who served in World War 1, World War II, Korea, Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan are engraved on the U. S. Army Monument which was unveiled  during a ceremony at the New Hampshire State Veterans Ceremony on Memorial Day. The monument was unveiled by Gov. John Lynch and retired Brig. Gen. Stephen Curry following a dedication ceremony.

Lynch paid tribute the members of the Gold Star Mothers attending the ceremony saying they have sacrificed so much by the loss of their children. He also paid tribute to those men and women who have served or are still serving in the Army.

Jonathan Halle of Warrenstreet Architects in Concord, NH was approached to design the monument, and he agreed to donate his time.  When asked, Halle said, “My dad’s retired Army, and you just can’t say no.”  New Hampshire corporations whose contributions helped fund the monument included Laconia Savings Bank, Public Service of New Hampshire, and Service Credit Union of Portsmouth. 

Click on the Military Monument video at the right to view a slide show of the construction and dedication of this moving tribute. 

Our thanks to DeeDee Rice, volunteer with the NH Army National Guard, for sharing the video!
