Amidst all that's wrong think of all that's right. And then remember those who gave all so we might have it. I salute you. and hope to see some of you again someday.
I always attend a Memorial Day service. At one point in the service they ask us to thank those around us that have served. Memorial Day is a day to honor those that have fallen but many also thank those alive. Some vets get offended when thanked on Memorial Day and some appreciate any acknowledgement they receive. I thought this was an interesting perspective:
To those fallen warriors, thank you.
It's a shame that most Americans seem to forget what Memorial day is about. To them it's just an extra day off to go to the beach without so much as a thought given to those who made their freedoms possible.
To all of those who fought for America's freedom and sacrificed all, and to all those who served in our nations defense..... Thank you.
Thank You for preserving my freedom and for paying the price for it. I have not forgotten. And I shall never forget.
For those that stand now I salute you, and to those that have fallen ! May we always remember what freedom costs !
God Bless all our fallen heros.
Foreign final resting places. We have some here, in Singapore.
Rest in peace my Brothers and Sisters.
As is often said the heroes are here.

Thank you for a wonderful resource and for your family's service.
If the barbarians ever try and defile the graves of our vets/heroes the 82nd/101st/Big Red One what ever it takes.. should secure the areas and the bring our vets back home.
and how many have said welcome back to those hero,s ----I do every time I go to the va .it means so much to them
A bit late, I'm sorry.
But, thank you.
As well as all who fought (and still fight) in the war against King George.
Memorial Day is Monday. If you are looking for something to do, attending a service at a National cemetery is respectable way of honoring those that have fallen. Follow this link- 2017 Memorial Day Ceremonies - National Cemetery Administration there may be a ceremony near you.
I'll be at Willamette National visiting Mom and Dad
Has it been a year already?

You just lucky, @enloopious
