On this day I am grateful and thankful for men and women who served in the military and died. No one I have known to the best of my knowledge was killed while serving in the military. And that is what Memorial Day is all about. Nothing else, no one else.
It is not uncommon with all the forms of communication nowadays and it goes on 24/7 not just up until midnight and they play the National Anthem, and the TV screen turns to snow… Do you remember that?
Memorial Day is not about military veterans alive or dead, none of the active militaries, it is about the fallen.
I hope your day is as great as mine
