Memorial Day 2024

1. Don't wish me a Happy Memorial Day! There is nothing happy about brave men and women dying.
2. It's not a holiday, it's a remembrance.
3. If you want to know the true meaning of the day, visit Arlington or your local VA or local Veterans Cemetery, not Disneyland.
4. Don't tell me how great any one political power is. Talk to me about Chesty Puller, George Patton, Dakota Meyer, Chris Kyle, Audie Murphy, James Doolittle’s raiders and our 20 KIA VO-67 shipmates and many other heroes too numerous to name whose lives were taken not given. Shed some tears for them.
5. Don't tell me I don't know what I am talking about, I have carried the burden all too many times for Warriors who now stand their post with God. I speak of them often even after all these years after the battle. I think of them daily.
6. Remember the fallen for all the good they did while they were here.
7. Reach out and let a Vet know you're there, we're losing too many in "peace time"
One more thing, as a Veteran, you come together, you have that BBQ. But before you eat, circle up and say a prayer. Raise that glass to your Brothers and Sisters that are gone. Then you don't say a word. After that, eat and enjoy each other’s company.

Some of these words were taken from a Facebook page but reflects as to how I feel.
