The Real Meaning of Memorial Day

Saturday, May 26, 2012

As we enjoy a long, relaxing weekend with our families, friends and loved ones, please remember those who have and ARE sacrificing currently and given the ultimate sacrifice so that we may....


I have been to this in Washington D.C. and it is absolutely amazing. I am looking forward to going again next year. I know this retired Marine SSgt Tim Chambers. Can YOU imagine standing at attention holding a salute in Washington D.C. heat for three HOURS? He has and does every year.


In special memory of my brother Paul emoticon and my first cousin David Spicer

in particular but too many others....Semper Fi

    Beautifully done, just hope that many many more see this. I didn't have time yesterday to check the links, so glad I came back.

    That Rolling Thundervideo always amazes me; took the time to watch his speech that was linked with it.

    May God comfort your family in the loss of your brother and cousin. emoticon

    Thank you Kal for reminding us all what the real reason behind Memorial Day is.

    Not the BBQ's, drinking beer, going to the lake, etc. But to remember our fallen hero's, those that still serve and those that give and give so that we can all do the above when we want to.
