    More Than A Name On A Wall

    This weekend has become, for many, just another three day weekend.
    But some still remember.
    And some can't forget.





    Sunday I will be with the local AMVETS placing flags on veteran graves at the two nearby town cemetaries.
    Monday I will join my VFW Brothers as they hold the traditional ceremony at 11:00 in one town, and 1:00 at the other.
    It's the least I can do.
    Please, if there is a Memorial Day Service in your town, please attend.
    It's the least you can do.

    Don't sell yourself short. As far as I'm concerned, anyone that has ever worn our country's uniform walks on water. I am awed, and humbled by them. "Thank You" is woefully inadequate to express my undying gratitude.

    They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
    Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
    At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
    We will remember them

    When I first heard of the "Wall" I wasn't to crazy about the idea, but having been there and walked by it several times I am impressed. Not many dry eyes viewing it either. Like 9/11, "we will never forget" all those who fought and gave their all for this country.
