It was designed by a fellow Sailor on our sad year 2001, but this remains every year. Thank you for every man and women who has ever served our country in the past, present, and future!
My husband leaves on Memorial Day (not the observed day) for an on-load and also some more rigorous training his US Navy ship goes through to get ready for the upcoming 6 month cruise in September....I think he'll be home for a total of 5 days in June. So, aside from what you may feel about this war or past ones...this Memorial Day give your love ones an extra hug and remember those that have fought for our freedom. This is our life...not a political thought, but a way of living- a feeling of Honor, Commitment, and Courage. In four years it will truly be a bittersweet day when he retires from such an establishment.
