The "Memorial" in Memorial Day has been ignored by too many of us who are beneficiaries of those who have given the ultimate sacrifice. Often we do not observe the day as it should be, a day where we actively remember our ancestors, our family members, our loved ones, our neighbors, and our friends who have given the ultimate sacrifice:


by visiting cemeteries and placing flags or flowers on the graves of our fallen heroes.

by visiting memorials.

by flying the U.S. Flag at half-staff until noon.

by flying the 'POW/MIA Flag' as well (Section 1082 of the 1998 Defense Authorization Act).

by participating in a "National Moment of Remembrance": at 3 p.m. to pause and think upon the true meaning of the day, and for Taps to be played.

by renewing a pledge to aid the widows, widowers, and orphans of our falled dead, and to aid the disabled veterans.

My sincere Thanks to all who have given so much !

Re: Memorial Day / Thank You To All Our Veterans

I am so thankful for all the men and women who have severed and especially to those that have given the ultimate...their lives! When I think about what kind of country we would live in if not for the
sacrifice of so many, it just makes me that much more grateful to all who have stepped up.

Usa Re: Memorial Day / Thank You To All Our Veterans

Awesome post, we just did our annual Gold Star ceremony for the families of our fallen last weekend. Always a humbling experience, this year I had the honor of escorting the widow and son of a friend that was KIA in the 04 Najaf uprising. Thanks to Tricia and Joey for a great day and thanks to all my fellow soldiers past and present for all the sacrifices made by you and your families.

I would just like to say thank you to all our service men and women, for protecting our freedon on a daily basis, and also to all of the fallen fathers, mothers, and children, most of all soldiers that have given their life, to protect ours. As we all enjoy our cookouts and swimming pools and great times with family and friends, just remeber what this holiday is really about and what it stands for. I salute to all The Armed Forces, for you are the real heroes and the true protectors of freedom. God Bless You All!!!!!
