    Our version of Memorial Day is in November and here in the UK its what's known as the Late Spring Bank Holiday today, formerly called Whitsun :) so here's to all those that have gone and those that still serve, and let's enjoy the day thoroughly wherever you are or whatever you may be doing.

    My father served in the US Army WW2, pacific front/ amphibians, after the attack on Pearl Harbor.

    I lost two uncles in that same war, US Army/US Marines Iwo Jima

    I lost friends and a cousin in Viet Nam, whom each served in assorted branches of our military.

    My son served as a submariner US NAVY USS PITTSBURG
    My daughter still serves, US NAVY Reserves, San Diego.

    May you each continue to hold up our flag, it's freedoms,
    and all that it stands for, and garner the support and respect,
    from all of us whom need you, to continue to do so.

    To all whom served, we owe you our depth & debt of gratitude.

    Memorial day is a day of solemn remembrance of those that gave the ultimate sacrifice for country and cause. While you enjoy the freedom of this holiday, take a moment and remember. Honer the women and men that died fighting for what they believed in. Honer those that did their duty even when they did not volunteer. *sighs* Yes, I am old enough to remember the draft.

    You can honor my peeled potatoes on Veteran's day. Today is for those that died on the killing field and those that died from the effects of war. I am humbled and honored to have known some few of them.
