Memorial Day, May 30th

So you went to a BBQ last weekend, maybe watched a parade. Memorial Day is a rolling Monday holiday.
But today is really Memorial Day.
So I will reprint my Memorial Day post from last year.
Memorial Day 2007
Today is a day for remembering as The Armorer and Mike Nachshen point out. So, I will remember.I will remember my Uncle Danny who gave his life on Iwo Jima on March 3, 1945.I will also remember my Uncle Jim who died on November 28, 1942. Jim was home on leave from the Marines when he lost his life at the Coconut Grove fire. Jim got his date and the couple they were with out safely before going back inside.
