Its Memorial Day! I would like to thank all the men and women who serve our country. I would also like to thank their families for the sacrifices they make on a daily basis. All too often they are forgotten. When your loved one enlists, so do you. Many people do not realize this! Most importantly today, thank you to all the families that have given their loved one for this country. They paid the price for our freedom.
With that being said... Enjoy your cookout, beach trips, lake/camping trips. You should. Please remember that is not what this holiday is about. It is about remembering those who gave all. Also, this is your public service announcement for the day. DO NOT, I repeat DO NOT tell a veteran "Happy Memorial Day." They look forward to Memorial Day as much as most people look forward to the plague! This is about remembering their fallen brother or sister. Thank them for their service instead.
By the way... that gorgeous man pictured on the left is DH. Love him and am so proud of his service to this country. If I am not wrong this is the second or third day of OIF aka 2 or 3 days after his 21st birthday.
