Memorial Day 2008

Memory Park
Originally uploaded by hpebley3

Here in the United States, we set aside the last Monday of May in honor of U.S. men and women who lost their lives in military service.

While I don't have any close family who have died in military service, I do have a number who have served and sacrificed to help keep us free. I want to thank them now: Grandpa Pebley, Uncle Joe, step-dad Joe, father-in-law Erv and my wife Diane. Additionally, I have three brothers in active duty: Andy, Chris and Jeff. Two are deployed and in harms way. Thanks for your service guys; our thoughts and prayers are with you and your families.

More information about this holiday can be found here.

Post a Comment

Comments are welcome but I do moderate them. This is simply to keep things wholesome for general family viewing. By default, comments will be accepted. The few things that will cause a comment to be rejected are:

1. It is too long even though it may be well-written and make interesting points. It's supposed to be a comment, not an essay. If you have that much to say, write a blog article and backlink to me.

2. It is nasty, impolite or uses language that is unacceptable.

3. It includes a a link that has a typo or is broken in some other way.

4. It should have been sent as an e-mail since it is clearly addressed to me and does not appear to have been intended for other readers.

5. It is blatantly self-promotional. This does not mean it can't be self-promotional at all, but it should add some value over and above the marketing.
