Memorial Day is about our honored fallen bretheran.
It is not a generic holiday about those who have served. It is dedicated to the memory of those who gave the last full measure of devotion to their Republic. It began as a custom of decorating the resting places and monuments of our most expensive (in terms of blood shed) war. I spent the day with the family of another Veteran over a pleasant dinner, at which we did indeed honor those fallen brothers, and thus did not post.
We all deserve some private time.
The world carried on, as it is wont to do…
