A day to honor those that served.

Or more accurately, those who died, while serving.

Agreed, and also to add at the risk of being labeled a hater, it is not a day we include and honor the police, firefighters, teachers or the red cross. I'm seeing way to much of that. We still have plenty of blanks dates on our calenders for them.

Rereading my post I thought I should be more specific. God bless the publicly funded workers who sacrifice for our kids, our safety and our quality of life.
Unfortunately, too many of us don't know the basic difference between Memorial Day and Veteran's Day. Why even have two days? Too many pastors, mayors, politicians are historically ignorant and in "celebration" of 5/25 are more than willing to dilute the memory of dead soldiers with a rousing ovation for the local sheriff's deputies or the school district or the postman.
My youngest son's history books contain less than a paragraph each covering Pearl Harbor and D Day. Nothing on Korea. Classmates can't understand the difference between WW1 and WW2, but a few believe we were monsters for bombing mainland Japan in 1945. Much of what has replaced our past in today's history books have little to do with learning/remembering/understanding and more to do with reeducating.
The issues in places like Ferguson and Baltimore, from the looting and anarchy to the perception of law enforcement need to be engaged. But on Memorial Day, I'd just like to think that there are still enough patriotic citizens who comprehend the depth of just what those dead men and women gave up, just so others could come back home, and the ones that they left behind could continue to enjoy the blessing and riches of the greatest country in the history of this world.
Now, that said, I'll be stopping by the local firehouse next Tuesday for pancakes and sausage. I'll tip my hat and leave a contribution in the donation boot then.

We went to Camp Lejeune To support a special Marine in our lives. Yes it was memorial day and yes he is still alive. Yes we want to keep him that way!

If you ever get the chance to spend a Holiday on base you should it's a great experience.
