    FYI: We consider this day May 28th each year in the United States of America annually as a time to mourn our dead.

    A salute to my Grandpa, Cpl. Sam Stanich USAAF.... who helped "keep 'em Flying" in WWII!
    A salute to my Great Uncle Larry Grogan USAF .... AP who stood guard at an US Airbase in Viet Nam
    A salute to all who served, especially those who made the ultimate sacrifice!

    May the Lord God remember them in His Kingdom! May they rest in peace!

    Eleanor Roosevelt's Wartime Prayer

    Dear Lord,

    Lest I continue
    My complacent way,
    Help me to remember that somewhere,
    Somehow out there
    A man died for me today.
    As long as there be war,
    I then must
    Ask and answer
    Am I worth dying for?

    Memorial Day was always 30 May, congress changed the day to the last Monday in May, there is a Bill trying to reestablish the original 30 May as Memorial Day regardless of the day that it falls on...be it a nice convenient Monday or the middle of the week...

    Hear - Hear...

    They went with songs to the battle, they were young.
    Straight of limb, true of eyes, steady and aglow.
    They were staunch to the end against odds uncounted,
    They fell with their faces to the foe.
    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.
    "Hot ginger and dynamite, There's nothing but that at night,
    Back in Nagasaki Where the fellers chew tobaccy and the
    women wicky-wacky Woo."
