Remembering the silent warriors of intelligence

We typically use this day to remember those soldiers who died in the course of serving their country in battle: our grandfathers, uncles, brothers, friends. But please also remember the men and women who are all too often overlooked: the members of our intelligence community who silently sacrificed everything for us - names we'll never know, who's passing will never be memorialized other than on a wall at Langley.
To my American readers, I urge you to take a moment to simply recognize that covert operators and members of clandestine services that have fallen in the line of duty.  Even if you're not American,  remember the men and women who gave their lives to protect your current way of life.
Happy Memorial Day


  1., I'll pass. Thanks for the suggestion though.


  2. I'm certainly no fan of war myself, Anonymous. And I'm thankful that we have the intelligence officers who have over the centuries who've prevented untold amounts of bloodshed.

  3. Amen. I am thankful for everyone who fights for our freedom. Freedom is not free, there is always a price to pay, remember that. I am also thankful for those people who keep our streets safe, from the police to the paramedics. We live in the greatest country in the world. Be thankful.
