Just 2 days ago, I learned about how the #PoppyFlower became โ€œa symbol for fallen troopsโ€ thanks to an illuminating article @wearethemighty โ™ฅ๏ธ . And to think it was only a month ago that my dear friend @kazumiaihara took me to see the sprawling, stunning Poppy Fields at Antelope Valley! Thank you so much, Kazumi! . That memory AND this flower have become even MORE meaningful to me now, as I had no idea at the time what this beautiful blossom symbolized... something so incredibly important, so powerful, so stirring ๐Ÿ’”๐Ÿ™โค๏ธ . To all of those who have paid the ultimate price for our freedom... as well as to their loved ones... with all my heart & all my life, THANK YOU ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ #neverforget #lestweforget #landofthefreebecauseofthebrave Please take a moment to swipe โฌ…๏ธ & read Lt.

In case youโ€™re unfamiliar, โ€œMurphโ€ is a classic CrossFit workout known as a Hero WOD. Hero WODโ€™s are made by CrossFit to honor the men and women that have fallen in the line of duty. This one is specifically to honor Navy Lieutenant Michael Murphy, who was killed in action in Afghanistan on June 28th, 2005. Murph 1 mile Run 100 Pull-Ups 200 Push-Ups 300 Air Squats 1 mile Run *With a 20 lb Vest or Body Armor This workout itself was Michaelโ€™s favorite workout to do, which at the time referred to it as โ€œBody Armorโ€, hence the 20 lb vest or body armor as part of the workout prescription. #team #lestweforget at CrossFit Corinthian

The depths to which humanity can sink and the heights to which it rises. The stories of individual courage and strength, these are the memories that endure. Someone once said that true death is when all memory of that person is erased from the memory of the living. May the memory of these souls live on #lestweforget #ANZAC #newzealand #australia #tepapamuseum at Te Papa

REMINDER - the LEFT are just as violently inclined and hate-filled as whomever they label a "Nazi". Which is arbitrary, since the young Left has very limited historical knowledge of what Nazi and Fascist ideology actually stood for. They just need an excuse to discriminate and eradicate, much like Nazism. #ifyoueverforget #lestweforget #defendeurope #defendeuropeagainstislam #defendeuropa #antifa #nazi #antifascist #marxism #communist #traditional #conservative #christianity #feminism #mensrights #mensrightsactivist

Auch nach dem Ende der Kรคmpfe um die Pointe du Hoc gab es weitere Opfer. Hier sieht man die Reste des ehemaligen Haupt-Munitions-Unterstand. In der Nacht vom 17. zum 18. Juni 1944 flog die deutsche Luftwaffe Nachteinsรคtze in der Seine-Bucht. Sie sollten diese verminen und Schiffe angreifen. Das Kampfgeschwader 2 mit sieben Ju 188 und zwei DO 217 sollte Bombenminen abwerfen. Dies machte starker Nebel aber unmรถglich. So warfen sie ihre tรถdliche Fracht einfach zufรคllig ab. Dies gerade auf die Pointe du Hoc und auch auf diesen Unterstand. Das Fatale daran, er diente als Unterkunft fรผr deutsche Kriegsgefangene die Minenfelder rรคumen mussten. Die genaue Zahl der Toten konnte nie ermittelt werden. === Even after the end of the fighting for the Pointe du Hoc, there were more victims. Here you can see the remains of the former main ammunition shelter. On the night of June 17 to 18, 1944, the German Luftwaffe flew night operations in the Seine Bay. You should mine them and attack ships. The Kampfgeschwader 2 with seven Ju 188 and two DO 217 was to drop bomb mines. This made heavy fog but impossible. So they simply dumped their deadly cargo by accident. This is just on the Pointe du Hoc and on this shelter. The fatale of it, he served as accommodation for German prisoners of war had to clear the minefields. The exact number of deaths could never be determined. === #wwii #ww2 #worldwar2 #lestweforget #normandie #dday #ddaylandings #overlord #militaryhistory #combathistory #ww2daily #ww2dailyhistory #war #krieg #history #liberte #historytour #guerre #routesofhistory #historicplaces #lestweforget #militaria #militar #battlefield #battle #1944 #normandy #omahabeach #wanderlust #normandietourisme @dday_history at Pointe du Hoc, Omaha Beach

As you are preparing for the Memorial Day weekend please keep in mind the importance of the moment. It was earned by those who made the ultimate sacrifice. They would surely want you to enjoy your weekend and live in the freedom that they helped provide but also take a minute or two to recognize the reason for your festivities. The men and women who died defending our nation did so almost exclusively under the duty of the American ideals. They wanted nothing more than to protect the human rights of freedom and equality of opportunity. Even if you believe some of the wars we have fought in have been conceived by people with ill intentions or short sighted thought, those who gave their lives did so with the best intentions. Regardless of our politics or the politics of the leaders, the soldiers were duty bound by a creed to protect our nation. Please respect them and their willingness to stand for what they believed in. Many of our citizens are unwilling to do that. Enjoy your weekend festivities, live the free life humans are inherently granted by God, and love others! God bless America and those who have died to protect us! #godblessamerica #thankyou #memorialday #weremember #lestweforget

Memorial Day and the weekend of is commonly marked in the Crossfit community by performing the hero WOD Murph, a workout formerly known as โ€˜Body Armorโ€™ and renamed for its creator Lt. Michael Murphy after he selflessly sacrificed himself to make a life-saving phone call for what would become the lone survivor of his group, Marcus Luttrell (the film โ€˜Lone Survivorโ€™ depicts this story). The WOD is: 1 mile run, 100 pull ups, 200 push ups, 300 air squats, 1 mile run - wear body armor if on hand (20LB men/14LB women). While personal achievement is important, Murph is about honoring the sacrifice Lt Murphy and many others like him have made. It doesnโ€™t matter if you can only complete half, a quarter, need to scale any of the movements, or do it without a vest. Donโ€™t have the equipment? Use what you have. Murph is about showing up and giving your all in honor and thanks to the best of your ability. Thank you will never be enough. #murph #themurph #themurphchallenge #honorthefallen #memorialday #crossfit #weremember #lestweforget #allgavesome #somegaveall #forthosewhonevermadeithome #paidinblood #sweatequity at Hyde Park, Chicago

"Brave men go forward not expecting to return." -Bona This day is the day of remembrance. In honor of all of the brave men and women who sacrifice their lives for something they believe in. The people who choose to step up are people who do not all look the same. These people can be black, white, native, gay, straight, Muslim, Jewish, or Christian. They may not all come from the same background or belief system. But, they are all individuals who believe the United States of America is worth risking their lives for. When the time is needed, these individuals come together as one united force. No matter who you are, your dedication is appreciated. #military #memorialday #army #airforce #marines #navyseal #navylife #armylife #navy #lestweforget #remembrance #remembranceday #bravery #courage #appreciationpost #gurushots #photography #redheadphotography

Two services attended by our Troop on Sunday. The first was US Submariners memorial, always a moving and eerie service with the tolling of the bell for those who fought and those lost at sea. Thanks Trooper Mark for laying the wreath. The second was Boer War Memorial and Trooper Elizabeth laid the wreath. This one is close to her heart as her great grandfather fought when he was in the British army. #twoservicesoneday #boerwarmemorial #ussubmarinersmemorial #lestweforget #thankaveteran #nationalanzaccentre #amazingalbany #theforts #amazingsouthcoast #history #cityofalbany #rslalbany #rslwa at National Anzac Centre

The Wellington Tunnels is an underground museum created in a section of ancient tunnels expanded on by the British Army during WW1. It is dedicated to the thousands of men who lived underground & particularly to the New Zealand Tunneling Corps & their work during the Battle of Arras 1917. Visitors can only go underground with a guided tour so make sure you book ahead to experience this subterranean cave network. . . #arras #france #wellingtontunnels #tunnels #newzealand #lestweforget #battleofarras #ww1 #westernfront #travel #battlefied #littlebirdtravel at Arras, France
