Memorial Day - remembering those who died in military service
Direct Link to Video
Please join me in pausing, albeit perhaps a day late, in remembering all the men and women in military service in the United States who have died in service to their country. You have made the ultimate sacrifice. Let us not forget. Let us not forget the families whose loved one did not come home after their military service.
As someone who grew up an came of age while the Vietnam War was going on, I am offering a special remembrance for all who died in Vietnam.
I meant to write this post yesterday, May 29th, on the day that we celebrated Memorial Day in the United States. As I was reflecting on the act that I missed posting yesterday, I remembered that today, May 30th, is the day that I grew up celebrating as Memorial Day. So perhaps it is fitting that I write this post today.
