Memorial Day


Three days ago I visited the local cemetery where my in-laws are buried to put a wreath of flowers on their graves. As I looked around, the many American Flags on the graves struck me. So many deceased are former warriors, each serving our country.

My father served in the military, he dropped out of High School to join. He began his service during WWII. He flew bombing missions out of England......over Europe. He came home, and found that his family had spent all his money, and used or sold everything that he owned. I terrible thing to find.  So, today, I honor his service to the USA. His grave is in a military cemetery, with the precision lines of identical white markers...with flags at every grave. A site to behold.
