Memorial Day, 2018—They Didn’t Die For Open Borders | VDARE.com

Last year on Memorial Day, I had a tribute to the late Kevin R. C. O’Brien (of Weaponsman.com) a Special Forces veteran who died in April, 2017.

Kevin would make the point, as a veteran himself, that Memorial Day is not the day to say to veterans “Thank you for your service” (that’s Veterans Day) it’s the day to remember the honored dead, who didn’t live to be thanked. [“Happy Memorial Day?” | WeaponsMan, May 30, 2016]

This year, I want to repeat something I said in 2010, when Obama was President: Memorial Day came into being after the Civil War, as “Decoration Day”, a day for memorializing the honored dead, of whom there were a great many, by decorating their graves with flowers.
