Default A chance to remember and say thanks

To all who have served and died protecting these United States over the last two and half centuries.
I was thinking back to when I was a boy my dad, who served during Korea, would take us with him on Memorial Day ceremonies. The American Legion would have a bus for all the vets and kids tagging along and tour cemeteries in the area where they would do a color guard. It was pretty impressive and at times emotional watching my dad and the other vets in their American Legion uniforms march up to the flag stand, present arms and give a Three Volley Salute. We kids would run out and collect the brass after.
It was a big deal for us because we could get our fill of birch beer and Coke before and during the bus ride then lots of hot dogs and potato chips after.
I just can't help but think something has been lost or forgotten along the way.

This weekend isn't the time for politics - regardless of your personal beliefs. Stow that crap until Tuesday and enjoy the time with your family, brought to you courtesy of more than a million soldiers who gave everything so you could freely do so.
