Leave your Memorial Day comments and stories here. Time to remember the fallen folks. Never forget, Sgt. Felix DelGreco Jr (CTANG), LCPL Lawrence Philippon (USMC), and all of the others who died so that we may live free. You may insert links to your family and friends memorials as well.
I also want to make special note of my Dad, Lt AP Vicevich (USN) and my step Dad, Lt Lou Guyott (USMC), both served in the South Pacific during WW II, and both have since passed. God Bless.
Leave your comments, or if you like ,remembrances below.
UPDATE: I’ve also added video of the annual Memorial Day ceremony at the home of two Iraq War Vets, and longtime friends, Chief John Weaver (AVCRAD 1109th) and Sgt Melissa Weaver (143rd MP Co) … the annual party invites members of the Guard, family and friends … and this year the ceremony includes the awarding of a flag to the oldest vet at the party, a member of the merchant marine.
This is how Memorial Day should be remembered. If you want to skip the poem I read, the gun salute and taps begin at 1:30.
UPDATE 2: Please go to Hot Air to see this picture which says it all about Memorial Day. Please.
