I think the section of this report on remembering the meaning of Memorial Day should be at the top, not the bottom.

I agree - Thank you Richard.

One of the thousands of forgotten Vietnam Veterans who came home to a country that treated us with scorn. We did our sworn duty and followed the commands of our elected leaders in the belief that that was what we owed our country.

Take a moment on Memorial Day to reach out to just one Veteran and thank them for their service to you and to our country.

Visit a National Cemetery and pick out one gravestone. Stand, sit or knell before that gravestone and talk to that Veteran who gave her/his life to that you could enjoy the freedoms you enjoy today. And, if you are a parent, take a child with you and explain to them what you are doing and why.

Then go have a great Memorial Day Party!
