Attention Americans, Memorial Day is Not Veterans Day
« on: May 25, 2015, 08:29:46 AM »
My condolences and respect for everyone in the military that has lost a friend, ally, or family member to combat.

For us civilians, can we try to remember that today is for the fallen, for those that died in combat? Let's give our respect to those that can't be here for our cookouts and Facebook posts. Let's give our sympathy to everyone we know who lost their blood kin to a bloody battle.

And let's stop confusing this day with Veterans Day.

I lost an uncle in 1941, when his destroyer was sunk in the North Atlantic, while escorting a troop and supply convoy to England.
RIP.
