Memorial Day

Since I did a blog about Memorial Day last year, I wasn’t sure about doing one this year without repeating myself. In fact, I already had another blog subject ready to go. That will wait. Because I just felt I needed to focus on this coming Monday and what it means.

In November, in celebrate Veterans Day. We acknowledge all that we owe to the men and women who have served in the Armed Forces. But in May, we observe Memorial Day. We strive to remember those who gave their all for their country.

Memorial Day

As Memorial Day approaches, I want to take a moment to remember our Armed Forces. We can be grateful each day for those who have defended our country and our freedoms – and honor those who have died for us. This coming Monday – the last Monday of every May – we take time to do just that. We remember those who have died in the line of duty and acknowledge their sacrifice. Because this really is a serious and solemn occasion, I’d like to draw attention to some documentaries that present a true, non-Hollywood accounting of what the men and women of our Armed Forces have given for us.
