My training of Memorial Day was from mominbox.  This was the weekend to go to the cemeteries and place flowers on the graves.  It would be a two day affair over the weekend as one cemetery was in a different state.  Dad was a veteran of Korea, though he would only tell us about 12 stories from his three years there.  We’re figuring that the remainder were of a level he didn’t want us to hear.

I took a quick browse through sites and links and found a few providing appropriate remembrance for those who gave their all.  May we treat this gift of a country as just that.  Let’s behave towards our institutions according to the opportunities we have to express what it truly means to be an American.  Freedom=responsibility

A history of the day of remembrance.

I usually fly the Texas flag, but today I have Old Glory flying.
