Nadler -- Memorial Day: Remember and pray for our wounded warriors  -- Evening Edition -- Daily Verse


While many Americans will be enjoying a long weekend of picnics, barbecues, beaches, pools and lakes and music festivals, let’s not forget that Memorial Day weekend is really not just a time to kick off the summer and indulge ourselves in food and frolic.  It’s a time to remember those who gave the ultimate sacrifice of their lives to provide for us the unprecedented freedom that we so often take for granted as Americans. 

No people in the history of the world have experienced the liberties and opportunities or prosperity that we have enjoyed as citizens of the greatest country on God’s green earth — the United States of America.  I don’t say that just as a biased American, but as one who can scour the pages of human history and say definitively that no nation has ever given its inhabitants the degree of freedom, security, and pursuit of happiness as has this extraordinary experiment in government called the United States.

Memorial Day: Purchase a poppy from the American Legion

By Mike Huckabee

I hope you’re enjoying your long Memorial Day weekend so far, and that it’s both a fun and safe time for your family.  Remember, Memorial Day means more than picnics, pool parties and sales.  It’s a time when we honor the many men and women of the United States military who, across more than two centuries, have made the ultimate sacrifice so that we can enjoy our freedoms in peace and safety.  Please remember to fly your flag, decorate a veterans’ grave, purchase a poppy from the American Legion, donate or volunteer for a veterans’ charity, or do whatever you can to show your appreciation for all that they have done for us.


Memorial Day: Hold the torch high

By Mike Huckabee

I hate to say it, but many Americans these days are pretty spoiled. I keep hearing that the current young generation wants socialism because they think their lives are so hard and there’s never been anyone in history with such bleak prospects for the future (they don’t understand that socialism is actually a sure-fire formula for hard lives and bleak prospects.)  

In truth, they have it better than any generation that’s ever walked the Earth.  They’ve grown up knowing only unprecedented peace, health, prosperity and safety.  Even those from families of modest means take for granted luxuries that kings of previous centuries could only dream of.  Diseases that used to kill millions of children now strike only those who deliberately refuse to be vaccinated.  They use their iPads and smart phones to go on social media sites and complain about how free market capitalism never did anything for them. They think that sacrifice means spending spring break at a hotel with spotty wi-fi. 



Memorial Day: Jack Gutman returns to Normandy

By Mike Huckabee

This year marks the 74th anniversary of the end of World War II, a war that took the lives of between 50 and 80 million civilians and over 16 million Allied soldiers.  More than 407,000 were Americans.  After nearly three-quarters of a century, even among those who made it home alive, there are fewer and fewer remaining with each passing year.  That’s why it’s so important to talk to them and preserve their stories for posterity while we can.

Prayers and best wishes for Rep. Nadler

By Mike Huckabee

I want to express my best wishes and prayers for Rep. Jerry Nadler, who came close to collapsing during a press conference in New York Friday.  A code blue was called, and doctors rushed in and treated him for dehydration.  Some things transcend political differences, and our fellow humans’ health is one of them.

I genuinely hope that Rep. Nadler makes a swift and full recovery so that he can get back to taking care of the people’s business and doing the job he was elected to do.  I also genuinely hope that he actually will get back to taking care of the people’s business and doing the job he was elected to do. 


Memorial Day:  Remember and pray for our wounded warriors

By Mike Huckabee

As we pay tribute on this Memorial Day to the heroic men and women of America’s military who for over two centuries have laid down their lives to protect our freedoms, let’s also remember and say a prayer for the many wounded warriors who survived the battles, but came home with deep and lasting scars. 

They deserve the very best care we can give them.  Not only through the Veterans Administration, but through private aid groups, like K9s For Warriors.  It’s a non-profit group that provides service dogs to vets with PTSD, traumatic brain injuries and other disabilities, to help them return to civilian life with independence and dignity.  One hundred percent of individual donations go to the program.  And 95 percent of the service dogs they train are rescued from shelters.  So when you donate to them, you don’t just help a veteran, you save a dog, too. Talk about getting a whole lot of bang for your buck!

Quotes from our Presidents

The United States and the freedom for which it stands, the freedom for which they died, must endure and prosper. Their lives remind us that freedom is not bought cheaply. It has a cost; it imposes a burden. And just as they whom we commemorate were willing to sacrifice, so too must we—in a less final, less heroic way -- be willing to give of ourselves.
- Ronald Reagan on Memorial Day

    As a Vietnam vet I learned after completing my time the people not to ask for help was any in government. It is still that way. I was told the VA no longer helps vets with housing when you need two incomes to afford a safe place. In the Portland, Oregon area they put homeless vets in shelters. I never asked for much and even my VA doctor misreads the law and won't help. Many of us don't won't to hear thank you for your service. I did my duty and built my life without government help. All my generation had was the GI Bill.
    What's more important is I came to faith in Jesus that time and He set me free.
    I appreciate your newsletter and TV show as they present a more accurate view of the world.

    Concerning Jerry Nadler...
    I was always told if you can't say anything good just say nothing at all.
    I'm conflicted.
