May 30, 1868

Did you know the first Memorial Day was observed on May 30, 1868?
I didn't.

I'm at a point in my life where I actually KNOW people who have served our country in the military. It never occurred to me that this was a big deal until several years ago.

Now I get it!!!

I did a Google search for "soldier iraq" and was disappointed with the results.
I have some idea of the sacrifice from my personal knowledge of ONE soldier.
He doesn't talk much about it.
I think, in general, soldiers tend not to.
It's all in a day's work.
Not so for me.
Thank you ALL for the sacrifice you make.
It's not unappreciated.
