Memorial Day Weekend

15 posts in this topic

Here's hoping all of you have a safe and fun Memorial Day. In the midst of having an extra day from work for pleasure, please take a minute to remember those that this holiday is for and honor them. I'm sure everyone has a friend or relative who has served or is serving in the armed forces. This holiday is for them and I for one am greatful they are there to serve us.

How sad for this thread to have 75 views and 2 posts.

It's a day to give thanks and remember those that have fallen for our freedoms we enjoy today.

May Gob bless those fallen heros and their families.

There is a debt I could never repay.

Thanks! It means alot to us to know people actually care. I know our services will include the reading of everyone's name who has been killed during the War on Terror. It's sad but we remember. Take care and be safe. Have a beer for me!

Thank you for the service you provide to our country, and pass that on to your fellow service people over there.

My very favorite holidays are Memorial day and July 4. When I was younger I just thought of these days as a holiday. Now, as a veteran, I look at them in a different light.

Please take a few minutes to remember the reasons we, as Americans, have the freedoms we do.

Walli1 and I were cruising down the croix to the mouth of the mississippi today. We saw several flags on poles and an American Flag at half mass with a few folks outside. All the suddon we heard shots. I had to laugh as Walli1 thought they were shooting at us. We looked back and they were doing a 21 gun salute. I figure it was to honor the fallen, but it was really need to see. To me, that's a lot of what makes me proud to me an American.
