Default Re: Just Remembering Today

I had an uncle whom I never meet.He was KIA on 6 June,1944,during Operation Overlord,D Day,the invasion of Normandy

My uncle Freddy is buried in Normandy,France.

Every Memorial Day weekend,Forth of July and Veterans Day,I display his U.S. 48 star coffin flag in front of my home,to honor his memory and sacrifice.

When I die,my son John will do the same,as will my grandchild Kenneth.

There are some who believe we should try to forget the past.

If we do that,we forget the ultimate sacrifice of some and dishonor their memory.We also doom ourselves to repeat history,by not remembering the past and learning by the mistakes of that past.

Forgive,yes.....forget, hell no.
