    Char-Woody,[p]Your profound words are right on the mark. This day is a tribute to all who served this great country. I hope people everywhere take a moment and think what today means other than a day off from work.[p]Honorably,[p]Smokey

    Char-Woody,
    Right on friend. Thanks for reminding all of us of the reason we celebrate Memorial Day. Our freedom, and the way we are able to go about our lives is unmatched in the world, and we owe it all to the folks who made sacrifices to make it that way. Don't forget the wives!![p]NB[p]

    My brother is currently out to sea in the Med(E-7), my other brother served 6 faithful years in the Marine Corps(E-5), and I have served 6 yrs in the Army {cough} Reserves(E-5) (boy scouts to many of you:) ).
    We all give thanks on this special day for the dedication to our Flag. And I give special thanx to all who served full time...in the time of peace and war...in which all the devotion and dedication to our Nation has given me the option to serve part time. May Freedom forever be with us.

    Char-Woody,[p]Well stated. We heartily agree.[p]Spin & MrsSpin

  • Char-Woody,
    I want to thank you for reminding us what today is really all about. Its about freedom. With out the men and women that served there is no telling what things would be like here in the US.[p]I think it is easy to forget what today is all about. Its not just a Monday off at the begining of the summer. For me my eyes were really opened the year I worked in the VA Medical Center in Milwaukee Wisconsin. By working there I really learned to feel what Memorial Day, July 4th, and Veterans Day was all about.[p]God bless Bill Miller, his wife and family and all those that have served our country.

  • Thanks Fred. Link is my duty station 1944-45. Many memories there.

    George,
    With the Yorktown on display here in Charleston harbor, I know it is an impressive warship.
