Here in the states many look at memorial day as 3 day weekend,a reason to barbecue and drink beers.Now I'm not knocking any of that but I do hope as I've heard people boast of their holiday parties they'll be attending that they'll also be giving nod to those that have served.
Though it is looked at as a time to honor those that have served and died I thought I'd share with you photos of my gramps in uniform who I am still so fortunate to have with me.He is a retired Sergeant Major in his 90's and has fought 7 terms of war from WWII through Vietnam.

I hope everyone has a fun and safe remains of the holiday weekend.I want to express my gratitude to the men and women that have served and continue to serve this country.Also thank you to your families for their bravery in holding down the home front and staying strong when you're away from them.Also in their ability to put on a smile knowing in times of war there is a chance you may not return to them.I salute you all.
