Memorial

Posted on Monday, May 27th, 2013

Dave! Hope everybody is enjoying their Memorial Day weekend.

When I was in Tunisia my tour group consisted mostly of Americans, so the guide was kind enough to drive us through the North Africa American Cemetery where soldiers from World War II are buried. As it was 9-11, the flag was flying at half-mast...

It's very difficult not to think of these fallen heroes far from home when Memorial Day comes to pass.

To all those who paid the ultimate price for our country, I thank you. Your sacrifice and courage will not be forgotten.

  1. thank you for sharing this, dave.

    memorial day for me was a traditional family cookout and yard party. my uncle had his dj equipment set up and was playing a block of proud to be an american songs while i was kicking ass at that bean bag toss game. all of the sudden i stopped playing when the lump in my throat choked me as “taps” played. i glanced up at the porch and two veteran uncles were standing and saluting the flag. powerful reminder of those who gave all. i was thankful the entire party fell silent during the song and for a few moments.

  2. Thank you.

    I swear this was one of the only places online, if not THE only place, that seemed to get that Memorial Day isn’t for the veterans walking around, but for those that died in service.
