Amen. . .I totally agree. We in the USA owe a lot to our fallen heroes.
we should take every opportunity to thank vets not just on Memorial day
but every opportunity we have. Read past the quote for another idea:

[[[We pay our respects to all the fallen heroes. Perhaps the most
profound tribute of all was made on the first national memorial
observance in May, 1868, by then - General James A. Garfield when he
said: "They summed up and perfected, by one supreme act, the highest
virtues of men and citizens. For love of country they accepted death,
and thus resolved all doubts, and made immortal their patriotism and
virtue."]]]

I for one like to remember the Fallen Heroes in my Family, injured and
seriously affected as well, but we should think of those and honor those
that were just there. Here is my list and I hope you will take the
opportunity to list your family (feel free to list even if they are from
other areas or ethnicity's):
