The following was sent to me from a friend, retired Navy. I'm not sure if he did it or someone passed it on to him, but it had a picture of each of the cemetaries. The subject of the email was; Are we arrogant? I do hope those friends across the seas whom had men and women lay their lives down for their freedom will visit those cemetaries over the next few days and reflect on where they might be today if American hadn't come to their side in time of need. These are the ones that didn't get to rest at home, they are still there, where they laid their lives down for a friend.

In alphabetical order. Just Europe .


1. The American Cemetery at Aisne-Marne , France . A total of 2289 of our m ilitary dead.
We Apologize.

2. The American Cemetery at Ardennes , Belgium . A total of 5329 of our dead.
We are arrogant .

3. The American Cemetery at Brittany, France . A total of 4410 of our military dead.
Excuse us.

4. Brookwood , England American Cemetery. A total of 468 of our dead.

5. Cambridge , England . 3812 of our military dead.

6. Epinal , France American Cemetery. A total of 5525 of our Military dead.

Apologize to no one. Remind those of our sacrifice and don't confuse
arrogance with leadership.
As Americans, let's all look forward to the next elections - to find
a President who doesn't think we need to be ashamed.

Thank you Renee. I received that email also. May our honored dead rest in peace and may we find our way as a nation, back to honor and respect and love for freedom.
