The below are just a few personal thoughts about this upcoming Memorial Day.

Armed Forces Day is to celebrate those still in uniform. It is truly a day for celebration.

Veterans Day is to celebrate those who served but are no longer in uniform. It is also truly a day for celebration.

Memorial Day, however, is to remember those who never came home. It is not a day of celebration, it is a day for remembrance. It is time to remember with love those who served but never came home. So let us please not wish each other a "Happy Memorial Day", there's nothing happy about it.

I wish you wonderful loving memories for those in your lives who never came home.

I have been in the below man's place at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington DC. I was sobbing so hard I was shaking and more than a little embarrassed to have been like that in full view of many around me. I want to go back but I'm almost afraid to experience that again.

What is the moment of silence for Memorial Day?



Memorial Day Remembrance - One Minute of Silence at 3 PM ...


Memorial Day is a United States Federal holiday. ... The National Moment of Remembrance encourages all Americans to pause wherever they are at 3:00 pm local time on Memorial Day for one minute of silence to remember and honor those who have died in service to the United States.

Memorial Service while in Iraq for some soldier who'd been killed.

For those of you who served, you observe this day however you need to. Most of my family did and still does serve in Israel and for those of us who didn’t serve, a little more respect seems like something we are lacking here.
it’s pretty powerful to be there and see the entire country come to a standstill.

I am blessed to be part of this brotherhood. Those we honor today are the real heroes! My prayers go out to the family members of the the fallen, to those that lost their lives so that we can live in a free country. So that we can choose to grow up and be whatever we want to be, so that we can choose to worship a God of our choice, or not to worship. May God send the families of these heroes comfort today and hold them close, as we honor thier family members who have given the ultimate sacrifice!
