As everyone knows, Monday is Memorial Day. Yes it is a good day for picnics and most of us get a holiday but we should remember what the day celebrates.
My father was a proud WWII veteran and he taught us about honor and love for our country. He always participated in the Memorial Day events with the VFW Hobart Post. He was very patriotic and taught us to be so also. He passed away over twenty years ago but he lives on in our memories.
So this Memorial Day please remember all of our service people those who are with us and those who have passed. And if you see a veteran or someone still in the service please remember to thank them.
