Music Monday – Memorial Day

Today is Memorial Day, a day in the States where we honor and remember those who gave their lives for our country and our freedom. I have family and friends that have served in the US Armed Forces, mostly the Marines Corps. Both my grandfathers and my dad were marines, and today I wanna say thank you to all that have given your lives for the USA. I also wanna send love and thanks to the families of those who serve as well because your job is a hard one too.

Here are a few of my favorite Armed Force-ish themed songs. Sorry if you don't like country music, but hey, there aren't many hip-hop American loving songs out there.....

Toby Keith  “Call a Marine”

Dixie Chicks  “Travelin’ Soldier”

Toby Keith  “American Solider”

Big & Rich  “8th of November”

Tim McGraw  “If You’re Reading This”

“Amazing Grace” (Marine's Final Salute)"  (bagpipes)  *tissue warning*

Lee Greenwood  “God Bless the U.S.A.”

*wipes eyes

On a happier note, today is also my son's 8th birthday, and even though he can't read this blog, I will play the music for him. 
Happy Birthday Xman! You are my most favorite person in the whole wide world.  Mama loves you!!

“Ice Cream and Cake”


  1. Happy Birthday Xman. Great music, as always B.

  2. Great choices B! My favorite ones you picked are Travelin' Soldier and American Soldier.

    Happy Birthday Xman!! Hope you have a great day
