This isn't much of a post, since my grasp of heartfelt words usually consist of the four-letter ones that I use when I smash my finger with a hammer.

But today in the US is Memorial Day and I figured I would say, Thank You to the people that have served, do serve, and will serve in the defense of our country.

And to Jace and MacD, be safe guys.

I too am a man of few meaningful sayings - but well said Shroom

Here we have Remembrance Day in November - usually Sunday nearest to the 11th and officially a 2 mins silence at 11m on the 11th... Your Memorial Day seems a bit more muddled - hard to mix a holiday weekend and a solemn remembrance from where I stand.

In the words of someone who put it far better than most of us could hope to:-

"When You Go Home, Tell Them Of Us And Say,
For Your Tomorrow, We Gave Our Today"

'bout says it all I think...

For the majority of the enlisted people, it was always about Freedom and Justice, and still is. Now if we could just be as certain about the motives of the Commander-In-Chief...

Great celebration today: Parade, fly-overs and re-naming a bridge (Veterans Memorial Bridge). Not bad for a town of 4,000 souls!

Thanks to all in uniform, then and now. And I thank God this country is doing a (somewhat) better job of welcoming back its troops than it did in the sixties and seventies.

I pray for Peace...please feel free to join in that sentiment.

I don't know what I was thinking... it seemed like a good idea at the time.

Things are always darkest... just before you pull your head out of your butt, void where prohibited, keep away from flame, surcharge(s) may apply.
