Remember this weekend
« on: May 24, 2020, 11:58:07 AM »

To most , tomorrow is part of a long weekend, maybe the start of summer and a BBQ...

this weekend families across America will visit stark headstones and will be sitting down without a member of the family present .

This weekend when you pour a glass of whiskey,  gaze out over the water or feel the wind on the road , give a silent note of thanks for all of those that have the ultimate for America and Freedom we enjoy , this weekend enjoy America and your families and friends for them .

My Dad was a WWII Marine; he fought in Saipan, Tinian and Iwo Jima. He was awarded two Bronze Stars and two Purple Hearts. Several times as a child I asked him about his experiences during the war. He pretty much refused to talk about it, other than to say he was very fortunate and that he had lost some good friends.
A proud American and Marine until the day he died. He constantly reminded me and my siblings how fortunate we were to be Americans and to never take it for granted. As long as I could remember he would put the American flag out every morning and bring it back in at sunset, until he was physically unable.
God Bless America, all those who have served and those who continue to!!!

After my last post I realized my error. Today is the day we honor those who have lost their lives.
