Reagan Speaks At Memorial Day Ceremony


In the absence of Washington leadership this Memorial Day weekend, I look to Reagan for guidance in remembering the fallen. May 28, 1984.

I don't think that the military wants anyone from the barack hussein obama regime to give a speech (with or without teleprompter) because whether barack hussein obama or his creature, Rahm Emanuel speaks, it's an insult to our honored dead.

Great speech! Thank you for posting this. I had never heard this before. Reagan was such an honorable President who deeply cared for our nation, citizens, and our troops.

I was going to post on this myself. I looked into and Reagan only went 4 out of 8, and Daddy Bush never went to Arlington. Only Clinton and W. went every year. So apparently many presidents don't think this is important enough. Which is horrible. They should all feel that honoring the fallen matters.

Thank you Mr. President, I miss you.

Wonderful video, Opus, thanks for posting this. THIS is what leadership is, this is a president who loves America and every American, regardless of their skin color or income level. I miss him.

Oh, how I miss him. I was a child when he was President, but even as a boy he made me proud to be an American.

Hi Opie! Thank you for posting this.
It's wonderful to see a REAL President honoring our war dead so perfectly.

I agree with LL, it's good zero isn't showing up at Arlington to defile their memories!
Have a nice weekend, my friend.

Thanks for posting this, Opie. As Bunni said..."It's wonderful to see a REAL President honoring our war dead so perfectly".

In less than three decades we've gone from a good and wise man in the White House, to an enemy of all things good and wise occupying that once honorable seat.

It's time to turn our nation back to the strait and narrow path, and honoring those who have sacrificed so much to serve us is an excellent place to start.
