The "Memorial" in Memorial Day

Real Estate Agent with First Weber Hedeman Group



The "Memorial" in Memorial Day has been ignored by too many of us who are beneficiaries of those who have given the ultimate sacrifice. Often we do not observe the day as it should be, a day where we actively remember our ancestors, our family members, our loved ones, our neighbors, and our friends who have given the ultimate sacrifice:

This is how we can honor them

  • by visiting cemeteries and placing flags or flowers on the graves of our fallen heroes.


  • by visiting memorials.


  • by flying the U.S. Flag at half-staff until noon.


  • by flying the 'POW/MIA Flag' as well (Section 1082 of the 1998 Defense Authorization Act).


  • by participating in a "National Moment of Remembrance": at 3 p.m. to pause and think upon the true meaning of the day, and for taps to be played.


  • by renewing a pledge to aid the widows, widowers, and orphans of our falled dead, and to aid the disabled veterans.

I think you will be surprised how affordable the Dairyland is,

so come to my land of cows and plows and visit for a day, but stay for a lifetime

Great post Scott.  We should never forget those who have given the biggest sacrifice in their lives to give us the freedom we enjoy today.

God bless them all.

Not a real person
San Diego, CA

Almost every homeless person here in San Diego carries a sign that says "Veteran" or "Homeless Vet" or "Vietnam Vet." Along with the deceased, should we as a nation not be taking care of the living? Or are these homeless people playing to our sympathy without being a veteran at all. Soon such claims might be a crime punishable by prison time, courtesy of those folks back East.
