Dad and I are having a quiet day, and will most certainly raise a glass to honor those who have given the last full measure to our country.
It saddens me that there are many that don't know the reason for this day, nor seem to care. I must be getting old, I can remember going to the cemetery with my granny to place flowers and flags on what was then known as Decoration Day.
I'm not sure I agree that it is foolish and wrong to mourn those who died. But I for darn sure THANK GOD that such men lived.
