Memorial Day is not for Celebration….. It is a time for Remembrance

People call it a Holiday to be celebrated with barbecue’s, picnic’s, a party of some sorts…….

Well this is what the day represents.

 

And let us never forget that.

From WWII in which the venue my Dad – Navy – ( USS TENNESSEE BB43 ) and his generation fought and gave of their lives for if not for, we wouldn’t even still be here. To my first cousins who were drafted in the poor boys war, Vietnam ( One In Country ).

Previous wars to Present ones.

We Thank You For Your Service, We Thank You For Your Sacrifice.
