Remembering the fallen

Posted by T. Greg Doucette on May 31, 2010 in Randomness | Subscribe

I don’t know how old I was when I found out that Memorial Day honored those who gave their lives while serving in our military, but I distinctly remember thinking how odd it was watching folks in the neighborhood celebrate by cooking out or going to the beach.

Now that I’ve grown up a bit1 I realize folks love their 3-day weekends and any excuse to break out the grill :beatup: I’m not one to look down on festivities, so carry on ;)

But, as you enjoy relaxing today, please take at least a minute or two to remember the reason for the holiday. Growing up in a Navy family in a military-heavy city, I’ve seen folks work hard at often-thankless jobs despite playing a vital role in our national defense. They deserve our respect, particularly the ladies and gentlemen who made the ultimate sacrifice for this country.

Just my 2¢. Have a great day y’all :)
