    Nine teenagers have been arrested over the savage beating of three Marines on a California beach over Memorial Day Weekend. Orange County officials said four boys and one girl were charged with assault with a deadly weapon on Tuesday and held at juvenile hall. And another four minors were charged with misdemeanor assault and battery, CBS News reported. The Marines were brutally attacked along San Clemente beach, just south of Los Angeles, by a group of up to 40 teenagers at 10pm on Friday after the service members confronted them about setting off fireworks. The incident was caught on video...

    Hopefully, we think of our nation’s servicemen every day – with respect, with pride, with gratitude. We especially think of them on the anniversaries important to the biggest wars in which they served – on days like Independence Day, Flag Day, Constitution Day, and of course, Veterans’ Day. But Memorial Day is the most direct one: a specific commemoration of those servicemen “who gave the full measure of devotion” for their country – that is, those who died in service to these United States. Memorial Day is therefore about many people – hundreds of thousands of men and women since...

    Just wanted to report in after seeing Fleet Week Los Angeles, held dockside in San Pedro. I helped out a tiny bit, handing out maps and schedules to visitors. I just wanted to report that patriotism is alive and well, where you may not expect it. All kinds of Angeleños showed up, wearing tshirts about military service, patriotism, God, faith and family. Many young families, service men and women, police, community volunteers, veterans. I did see one Black Lives Matter ball cap, but also saw a first: “dare to be Lutheran” on a tshirt. Most poignant: a woman came up...

    “If you ever want to sleep with a blonde again, you had better shoot down these bastards as soon as they come up” - a destroyer captain motivates his exhausted crew shortly before a kamikaze attack. The sea-battle toll for Okinawa that ended on June 21st 1945 was 36 U.S. warships sunk and 368 damaged. Almost 5,000 sailors were killed in action and another 5,000 wounded.War naturally conjures images of courageous infantrymen. Gettysburg, Flanders Fields and not the Coral Sea or Leyte Gulf.Too often forgotten are the heroic Navy, Coast Guard and Merchant Marine sailors felled at sea. It’s understandable;...

    Israeli Ambassador to the United Nations Gilad Erdan read the names of Israeli victims of terrorism at a Security Council session criticizing Israel before leaving the meeting in protest against the holding of the session on Israel's Memorial Day for fallen soldiers and victims of hostilities. “Today is one of the most sacred days of the year for the State of Israel,” Erdan told the Security Council members. “We made numerous requests to reschedule today’s debate, describing the deep importance of the day, yet tragically this council refused to budge.” "We made numerous requests to reschedule today’s debate, describing the...

    WASHINGTON – Before then-President Donald Trump visited a US Navy base in Japan in 2019, his team asked officials to keep a ship named for one of Trump’s Republican rivals – the late Sen. John McCain – out of sight, newly released Navy emails confirm. When reports of the White House request initially surfaced, Navy officials told reporters a painting tarp that obscured the ship’s name from view in the days before Trump’s visit was placed there for maintenance reasons – but the documents released Wednesday confirm that was untrue. “The name of USS John S. McCain was not obscured...

    President Donald Trump on Monday offered a Memorial Day message, thanking the brave men and women of the country who paid the ultimate price and making it abundantly clear that they will never be forgotten. His brief remarks were pointed, contrasting President Joe Biden, who used the day to push for gun control and pay homage to Ukraine. “Happy Memorial Day! God Bless all of those who fought and worked sooo hard to build, and now SAVE, our Country,” Trump wrote in a Monday post on TruthSocial. “Many brave and beautiful souls were willing to make the ultimate sacrifice.

    Memorial Day takes on its deepest meaning when we connect it with our heritage and roots. Memorial Day is a profound American holiday because it connects the present with so many different points of our past. It was originally known as Decoration Day, a day set aside to honor those who lost their lives in the Civil War—America’s most costly war, taking the lives of at least 620,000 men. Among American holidays, Memorial Day is unique also in that it originated from the vanquished, not the victor. After the war was over, women from the South—Columbus, Mississippi and Richmond, Virginia—set...
