Happy Memorial Day
Yes I said Happy Memorial Day. I hope each and everyone of you is out and about doing what you love to do. Many would like to chastise and say this is a day for remembering those who have given the ultimate sacrifice for our country and we should be solemn and subdued in our soul searching and remembrance. While they are correct they are also so very wrong.
While not a combat veteran myself I at least volunteered to do my duty more than once and while I cannot say I personally have known anyone who has died in combat I have known many who have been wounded and served in actual combat rolls not just some rear echelon types. I grew up around them, heard the stories and followed in their foot steps and while I was lucky in that I served during times of peace or at most small flare ups with a lot of posturing I was never rotated into a combat zone. Yet I think I have a pretty good handle on what those who did would be thinking about Memorial day and how we observe it.
Enjoy those things they fought for. Celebrate the good times of life those heroes laid down their lives for and then at the end of the day remember them and say a little thank you.
I think that would make them smile.
So raise up a cold one and.....
Keep Prepping Everyone!!!!
