Memorial Day

I hope everyone's having a great weekend and I hope everyone remembers what Memorial Day is really about.

I've blogged about this before: Memorial Day: pools, barbecues, sales and dead soldiers (2006) and Happy? (2007)

So I'll spare you the usual banter. You should know how I feel about the day by now. Once a military wife, always a military wife.

On a related note, is giving you free access to the Military Collection through May 31st. I searched through there and have now seen my great uncle's name on the death roster as well as discovered that he enlisted on what would later become my birthday. I've seen another great uncle's draft card from the First World War (and discovered he had grey eyes and dark hair which I never knew).

So feel free to go take a look around there this weekend.

I was pleased to hear my son tell me that he knew that Memorial Day was "to honor soldiers who died in wars." -- Yay for teachin' em young!
