    Happy Memorial Weekend

    This is a weekend to honor our men and women who are serving or veterans. So please remember to thank a veteran today. I will go out this afternoon to visit my grandpa's who served in the Navy and thank him for his service.

    If you want to honor someone and can't visit them or call today feel free to
    do so here.

    GOD BLESS AMERICA

    Re: Happy Memorial Weekend

    This day is to remember all who died for the cause of liberty both military and civilian. Without their sacrifice, we'd all be talking about something other than college sports on this website, and probably not in American English.

    I have ancestors who fought in the both the American Revolutionary War and the US Civil War. Plus a number of other relatives who served and fought in WWI, WWII, and the Korean Conflict.

    I served during peacetime, post-Vietnam era from 1976-1984, US Navy, when it was really not popular to be in the military.

    Giving thanks to the Military

    I would like to thank the Military personnel out there for working their butt of for us. Its hard work and can be lonely out there for them and they do a great job for us.

    This is a great point to remember - I listened to a WWII veteran speak at a cermony yesterday, who told those of us in the crowd to use our energy not to applaud him, but to stop by the graves of fallen soldiers, that they are the "real heroes."
