In Honor of our Fallen

On Monday, May 30, 2011 at 1500 hours (3:00 PM) please take a moment of silence, and remember the true meaning of this day.

Memorial Day

Created a few short years after our own Civil War, we set aside this day to honor and celebrate the lives of those who died in service to our country.

I am not going to write what I think about Memorial Day, you all know my thoughts concerning the over commercialization of our lost brothers and sisters. Today I am only leaving you with a few images of those that I honor this day. There are many others to honor, and unfortunately many more to come. May we never forget that we live in a free country because of the men and women who have given their lives in service to our great experiment.

Thanks for remembering my "boy" David, we miss him so much....

But continue to be proud of who he is, what he did, and the legacy of Duty, Honor, Country he left us.
