Let's Remember the Meaning of Memorial Day

While many of you are having BBQ's and enjoying a nice day off from work...
I ask you to take just a minute of your day to remember the meaning of Memorial Day.

It "is a day of remembrance for those who
have died in our nation's service."

To help re-educate and remind Americans of the true meaning of Memorial Day, the "National Moment of Remembrance" resolution was passed on Dec 2000 which asks that at 3 p.m. local time, for all Americans "To voluntarily and informally observe in their own way a Moment of remembrance and respect, pausing from whatever they are doing for a moment of silence or listening to 'Taps."

This is when Marc deployed:
This is when he returned...

While we are lucky and his whole unit returned home safe, let us all please keep those who did not return in our thoughts and prayers.
Also please remember the family and friends of those left behind.

Have a Safe Memorial Day.
