Memorial Day 2012
Today May 28, 2012, is Memorial Day, a day set aside to recognize our fallen warriors. Today we'll celebrate with our families and friends with a backyard BBQ, cooking up some ribs or maybe some carne asada. Maybe you'll toss down a few beers. What ever you do, don't forget to thank the men and women who died so we can live and enjoy life. Say a prayer, give thanks or if you prefer, give them a well deserved toast. What ever you do, just don't forget them. My wife Jeri and I, and our family thank all the men and women of the Army, Air Force, Navy, Marines and the Coast Guard. God Bless you and your families!! Enjoy your day.
The video below is a scene from Taking Chance. I don't think any other movie could better describe what Memorial Day is all about. It's showing on HBO right now and will probably be showing for the remainder of Memorial Day. Look for it.
