Pratt is routinely a target for the Left, mostly over his open Christianity and love of country.

“Today we pay tribute and remember all of the brave men and women who have laid down their lives in service of our nation,” Pratt captioned an Instagram post. “I urge you all take a moment today to remember those who fought for us. #MemorialDay.”

In a follow-up post, the “Jurassic World” actor told his followers he was doing the “Murph challenge,” which is typically done for charity in honor of Navy Seal Lieutenant Michael P. Murphy, who was killed in Afghanistan in June 2005 .

“Just completed this year’s #MurphChallenge,” Pratt captioned the video.

The workout typically includes a mile run, 100 pull-ups, 200 pushups, 300 squats, and closes with another mile run. It was apparently one of Murphy’s usual workouts.

“The 2014 movie ‘Lone Survivor’ features Murphy’s story as his character was played by Taylor Kitsch,” KSNT Noted.

Last year, Pratt told his followers on Memorial Day to please show “support for our fallen” and told people who might “b**** and moan about America” in the comment section to “never forget your right to free expression is paid for in blood.”

“America’s exceptional armed forces have altered the course of the world for the better,” Pratt continued the post. “From the Union Army defeating slave owning confederates, to the Greatest Generation and her Allies vanquishing the Nazis or our special operators hunting down the perpetrators of 9/11. We count the names of each fallen soldier lest they be countless. They are the good guys. They run to the sound of gunfire. They know pain and suffering we never will. They have given us the most free and decent society planet earth has ever seen. We run the risk of losing that decency when we fail to instill gratitude in the minds of our youth or the perspective of what it actually means to be free- should they never learn of the selfless sacrifice of our armed service members in the face of oppressive evil. So join me in showing support for our fallen. Take a quiet moment to really consider the sacrifice.”

“And if you use the comments section on posts like this to b**** and moan about America please understand there are countries in the world where criticizing your government will get you or imprisoned,” he added. “Criticism is a right and necessity in amending the flawed systems of man. So by all means, let your voice be heard. But never forget your right to free expression is paid for in blood. May God give their souls rest, and may they live in our memories this weekend and always.”

The actor has a number of other patriot posts on his Instagram, too. Back in 2019, on Veteran’s Day, he paid tribute to his brother and other veterans.

“We have the greatest armed forces the world has ever seen,” Pratt wrote. “It’s made up of real people who joined for myriad reasons. Brave men and women who sacrifice a whole hell of a lot. Today is their day. So celebrate a veteran today. Today I celebrate Cully, as well as my cousin Curtis, Uncle Steve, Uncle Skip, second Cousins, Joey, Ryan and Alex, besties Jared and Jeffrey, all those I’ve fished for hunted with, those who’ve blessed me with their Challenge coins as I’ve encountered them on press junkets and in my travels, the many in the film industry working both in front of and behind the cameras. To those currently serving and those out thanks for your service. We appreciate you!”
