Memorial Day 2014


Monday is Memorial Day here in the United States. To many, it means BBQ, drinking beer and having a good time. To me, it means to remember all those who have given their life to this country. Being a veteran myself, I feel that it is important to honor those who have given their lives for this country. Also, I statue anybody who has ever served this great country (All pics were taken at the San Francisco National Cemetery):

This last one is hard as this headstone is my Dad. We had no relationship as from the time I was about four I did not see him until I was 26 and then maybe five or six times after that until he died. Even though, we had zero relationship I am still proud he served:

  3. hank you for your service to our country and to all those that have and are serving. My dad was in the II WW and didnt talk about it much. Mostly bad memories for him, with bayonets and all, made him very goosey.

    Thank you for stopping by this week, sorry I am late in getting over to visit. I appreciate that you stopped by.

    Have a great week!
