Some of you understand. Some of you don't.

I get an eye twitch whenever I hear or see "HAPPY" Memorial Day.

For many of the consumerist cattle in our country, Memorial Day weekend has become nothing but the "Official" start of summer. And the big Box stores do everything they can to reinforce this attitude.

It has worked so well that people don't understand the difference between Memorial Day and Veterans' Day ... and they treat Veterans' Day as the more somber of the two.

*raising a glass to the ones who heard the call, before during and after my own time in the uniform, but never made it back home.*

To my brothers and sisters who saw more than most can imagine.
To those who took their last breath far from home.
No matter the reason you ended up in the uniform; be it selfish or selfless.
I may not know your names. But trust me when I say ...

You are not forgotten.
