Respect memorial Day

When I was a kid memorial Day was called Decoration Day and it was a day of remembrance of all the people who died defending the United States and people would go to cemeteries and decorate the graves of our brave hero's who died so that we didn't have to.

Today, sadly, most people think of it as a day off and a sale day to buy stuff cheaper. But I hope many of us remember the true meaning of the day and take a minute off to pay respect to these brave Americans who gave their lives.
I am sure the Patriotic people on these forums remember.

Just saw this post Paul.. You are absolutelty correct. I maybe a lot younger then you but todays generation sees it as a day to drink and have BBQs and not actually take a minute to remember the true heros that have fought for this country.

Thanks for the post
