|Honoring the Fallen|
February 21, 2005
USA Patriotism! (http://www.usapatriotism.org) the would like to announce its new feature that honors the brave fallen of the USA armed forces at http://www.usapatriotism.org/heroes/fallen/directory.htm.
David Bancroft, USA Patriotism! owner and founder, states...
"I have thought about honoring all the brave troops who have paid the ultimate sacrifice for our great nation, since I founded USA Patriotism!
However, I wanted more than just a list names so that visitors could have a more personal feeling for each fallen hero. Nor was anyone going to be listed without the permission of his or her family, who could not be contacted directly due to time constraints and more so out of respect for the loss of their loved one . . . whether recent or a distant memory.
Then a few weeks ago I was made aware of a video tribute of USMC Corporal Robert P. Warns II, who was killed in action while serving in Iraq. This video of his funeral moved me so much and resurfaced all the emotions I experienced when my youngest son was serving in Iraq with the Marines . . . that I immediately ascertained how to reach Corporal Warns' parents to express my sincere condolences of their loss and pride for their son's service . . . which then led to me asking them about listing their son as the first one on the new fallen heroes tribute section at USA Patriotism!
And that is how the Fallen Heroes tribute section became reality with loved ones giving permission to do so. Hopefully, others will do the same as they become aware of it . . . as there will always be an open invitation for parents, wives, husbands, and/or children to list their fallen hero at USA Patriotism! with a color photo along with a brief description about their service and how he / she died while serving the USA and fellow citizens proudly.
The new fallen heroes section also compliments what USA Patriotism! is all about... Showcasing a fervent love and pride of the United States of America with poems, sites, tributes, articles, stories, quotes, thoughts, music, artwork, and more . . . Visitors will share the experience of honoring and remembering of our troops, veterans, Medal of Honor recipients, Presidents, other great Americans, and national tragedies. And there are hundreds of USA / patriotic themed gifts listed in 20 categories including the armed services, police, and firefighters."
