Memorial Day

Post  126andy on 5/27/2011, 10:59 am

Memorial Day will soon be upon us and as we prepare for our parties, barbeques outings to the beaches and whatever plans we have we should stop for a bit and think about what the day is all about.
It's not a just a day where we have a "three-day weekend”, or a time to purchase appliances, mattresses and watch the special auto races and sporting events or to mark the official start of summer. Memorial Day is a special time to honor our war dead. Three million members of our nation that have lost their lives in the defense of America. We should take the time to honor the uniformed men and women we have lost due to conflict throughout the years. Tell your children what the day is all about and if you can make the time take them to a National Cemetery, like Calverton National, to see our fallen heroes. It is a beautiful peaceful place and when you're there you can feel that there's something special going on around you.
I served in the USMC Vietnam and feel that the least I can do for my fallen brothers is stop for a minute and thank them for giving us the freedom to go to our parties, barbeques and sales. I will make the trip to my local National Cemetery to say hi to some old friends and thanks to everyone. Have a Happy Memorial Day!

I did not serve but I thank you and everyone who did or chooses to do so. It is a noble endeavor and takes a far braver person than I can claim to be.

Happy Memorial Day to you!
