Happy Memorial Day

We cherish too, the Poppy red
That grows on fields where valor led,
It seems to signal to the skies
That blood of heroes never dies.
Author - Moina Michael

From Memorial Day History
"Memorial Day, originally called Decoration Day, is a day of remembrance for those who have died in our nation's service. ... Memorial Day was officially proclaimed on 5 May 1868 ..."

This is my salute of THANK YOU to all our veterans, both near and far. Some gone on before, some still with us. Those that are now gone, may you Rest In Peace. Those with us still, may you always stay safe and know you are appreciated. And my humble prayer is that all our veterans will come home to their loved ones soon, that we all my live in peace.

Respectfully submitted.
