Traditional Memorial Day
Yesterday I had to honor of attending the Traditional Memorial Day ceremony at a a local memorial. It was a great time, chatting with so many vets, many with Purple Hearts from WWII & Korea, these men are truly American Hero's. While the politicians tried to turn it into an Anti-War ceremony (Yep, you Joe!), there were plenty of others who were only there to recognize those who have given their lives for the freedom of others.
Many of the vets seemed genuinly surprised when we thanked them for their service. They in turned were thanking us for ours as well. It was a nice occasion and the weather even cooperated.
