To all who have served...

Thank you for your support; however, Memorial Day is about those who died. 

LOL!  A sad yet well-known fact that seems to have been lost on the OP. 

You don't just thank them for serving, you thank them for giving the ultimate sacrifice.

I am very sorry for all of you who are suffering each year on this special day. I still think of the people I no longer can enjoy being with. It will always hurt us.

My wife's uncle (from her Irish mother's side) fought in Okinawa in the Pacific theater of WWII.  He's since passed away and whenever we used to visit, we would get to see his purple heart he was awarded for bravery and for saving many men in his platoon.  He was such a great guy and loved the old sauce and when he was toasty, he would tell us stories you wouldn't believe!   Good ol' John McCourt may he rest in peace.
