Memorial Day

An excerpt from one Memorial Day essay:

“The white headstones are simple: each include the name, branch of service, date of birth and death, and perhaps a detail about rank or awards. But each is a journey in time; each is a narrative; each is a story of sacrifice. Everyone is unique but they have so much in common because of their dedication to their country. “

Never forget.

    I’m a bit shocked that someone from NBC would write such a nice article about Memorial day.

    For me I can remember both faces of my Grandpa Jamack and my Uncle Jamack who lie in Arlington cemetery. It’s kind of a spooky place as you imagine the battles and the horrors they went through.
