Deborah Tainsh is a military wife and mom who is passionate about sharing the stories of those who have had to grapple with the death of their loved ones on the battlefield. Deborah’s son, Patrick, was killed in action in 2004 while protecting his comrades and defending the freedoms of Americans. Deborah gives the history of Memorial Day, highlighting that many Americans don’t understand the sacrifice military families have had to make when their loved ones are serving our country. The younger generation doesn’t grasp that our freedoms are not free, she says. The history of Memorial Day and the history of the U.S. military itself is being quietly expunged by our unappreciative government, who doesn’t take care of our veterans as they should. 


 

TAKEAWAYS

Memorial Day is mourning those who have died while serving our country while Veterans Day is honoring those who have served

Take a few moments this Memorial Day to thank God and a veteran for your freedoms and teach your kids to do the same

History is being erased and rewritten in textbooks and through the destruction of monuments so the youth won’t know America’s history

Today in America, it is extremely concerning that less than one percent of our population is actively serving in the military
