Memorial Day Weekend
Memorial Day weekend for most people is all about BBQing, getting drunk, boating, and having a good time at the lake.
My Dad was at Pearl Harbor, relatives in the navy , air force, army , etc. friends fought and died in Vietnam . Two grandchildren in air force. myself in government service in south east asia in the early 70's. People are out there protecting our nation so you can bbq and drink this weekend.
In the movie Saving Private Ryan the part that still breaks me up is at the end when the older Ryan asks his wife if he had been a good man. Hanks' character had told the younger Ryan to "earn this" before he died.
I hope I earn it almost everyday of my life.
have a safe and happy weekend
