How Do You Observe Memorial Day?

The "Memorial" in Memorial Day has been ignored by too many of us! While I am all for getting family and friends together to BBQ and participate in outdoor games/activities, we do not observe the day as it should be, a day where we actively remember those who have given the ultimate sacrifice!

Sooo... Today, observe Memorial Day by:
* visiting cemeteries & placing flags/flowers on the graves of our fallen heroes.
* visiting memorials.
* flying the U.S. Flag at half-staff until noon.

God Bless Our Military!

We went Geocaching ( and it lead us to a local memorial set up. Couldn't have picked a better cache to search for.

You hit it right on the nose! It is great to have a day off but that isn't what it is about. Thanks for putting that reminder out there!
