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.
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.
To our "Absent Companions" a toast! Rest easy on Fiddler's Green.
