A perfect tribute for Memorial Day. I love how it just flowed without any pretense of writing a new piece. Our God is using you in so many ways. Another gift. Thank you. I have never been to Arlington but it will be a sure visit whenever I do get to our Capitol.

Mr. Keshel,

I subscribed the second I saw you allowed subscriptions. I applaud your work. I applaud the work of David and Erin Clements.

Yesterday at church we had masterful recitations of Lincoln's Gettysburg Address, and my favorite, March 23 1775, St. John's Church, Richmond Virginia, Patrick Henry's famous speech. Both in their entireties.

I live for Patrick Henry's words and distribute them anyway I can. He was 38.

And Madison, at 36, in the Federalist No. 62, wrote:

"...The internal effects of a mutable policy are still more calamitous.

It poisons the blessing of liberty itself.

It will be of little avail to the people, that the laws are made by men of their own choice, if the laws be so voluminous that they cannot be read, or so incoherent that they cannot be understood; if they be repealed or revised before they are promulgated, or undergo such incessant changes that no man, who knows what the law is to-day, can guess what it will be to-morrow.

Law is defined to be a rule of action; but how can that be a rule, which is little known, and less fixed?..."

and

"...But the most deplorable effect of all is that diminution of attachment and reverence which steals into the hearts of the people, towards a political system which betrays so many marks of infirmity, and disappoints so many of their flattering hopes...."

Thank you for writing.

God preserve our souls for our eternal fellowship with him and preserve our republic for our posterity,

Mr. J. Ingvar Odegaard

Your Dad is always with you! AND he is very proud of you! Proud that you are still a Warrior! We miss the physical person but are blessed to have learned from our parents and the time with them that we were granted! You wouldn't be the man you are without the time spent with your Dad!

Hey Seth, Great article! I looked up your father’s final resting place and it’s the row before my mom’s (she also died from pancreatic cancer). Reminds me that I need to visit her soon.

"Nothing Great Comes From Comfort Zones"--it takes courage which sometimes I feel I lack like Gideon...unsure of self, but knowing something has to be done by someone. Thank you for finding LCDR Price and your encouraging words. It's not been easy these many months as we fight to secure our Constitutional Republic and the liberties our National Treasures fought to preserve and protect

I don’t personally know of anyone buried at Arlington, but I cry every time I walk through. Same for Gettysburg and the Vietnam Memorial. So many have made the ultimate sacrifice so we can live in peace. I’m so grateful for all the vets and their families. You have a great legacy, Seth. This was a perfect heartfelt tribute for today.

Captain Seth, I am sorry you did not have the chance to attend your dad's service. Our veterans and their families make so many sacrifices. Your dad must be incredibly proud of you! When you next meet, it will be for eternity!

Thank you for your inspiring piece about Commander Price and family. Loved it!
