As if we already didn't need to know why we have this day off of work???
First to give thanks to all those who have fallen and their family members who have lived through their faithful service to us all and our country.
Second to give thanks to all those who are curently serving us you are not forgotten. Thank you!
I will be spending my Memorial Day at the Rock Island Arsenal with my Grandfather who is my lifelong hero. He was in the Navy in WW2 and was on the USS Princeton when it was sunk. He survived that and had two kids and 5 grandchildren all of which he played a major part in raising. He was the only Dad I ever knew and I cherish every memory I have with that man. A TRUE AMERICAN HERO!
