Please take a moment today in all of your festivaties to remember what the day is about. It is to remember those who have made the ultimate sacrifice - their life - so that we can enjoy our lives. Memorial Day is not about 'Veterans' - we have our 'Veterans Day' in Nov - it is for those who can never be 'Veterans'. I have only one family member that I actually knew that I honor today - a BIL that I did know. There are many friends from my youth who fell in 'Nam, and in all the years since, some young menand women I am proud to say I knew who have given the most precious thing anyone has - life - for me and for you. I also THANK those I was not blessed to personally know and my THANKS/PRAYERS also go out to their families.
