    Thanks also go out to the soldiers who fought alongside the US from Canada, Russia, the UK, Australia, New Zealand, and so many other countries during World War II. No one country could have done it alone...

    That being said, I was somewhat dismayed at my local military town for the lack of Memorial Day festivities. No parades through the city center, no fireworks, just another day off it seemed. It would be nice to have a little bit more in the way of festivities and memorials, considering that we have lost 30 soldiers from Fort Drum due to the wars...
    Ditto, ditto, ditto.

    Memorial Day, observed. It's similar to the British "Poppy Day" or "Rememberance Day."

    Lest we forget...



    While waiting to pick up a relative at SEA, I entered the Memorial Cemetery next door to SEA, and there must have been at least 3,000 flags, covering the lawn. It was just amazing.

    Thanks to the veterans, and those who have payed the ultimate sacrafice.

    Please keep out all political discussions...thanks.
