:usflag: Here's to all who ever served this country on this Memorial Day, May 25, 2009 (my oops on the title date. lol!)
Thank you Submariner, for one, and all the others who are Cadillac owners. You are all my hero and I love you.

My Daddy was a bombadier in on the B17 Flying Fortress squadron in WWII. I'm not sure he ever really recovered from the horrors of war, but he is at peace now. Still miss him 20 years later.

May God protect and help all those who are now serving abroad in the various military of the U.S. and bring you home safely.

The Kohima Memorial epitaph sums up Memorial Day for me:

When You Go Home, Tell Them Of Us And Say,
For Their Tomorrow, We Gave Our Today

To all those who never made it home, thank you.

"Go tell the Spartans, passerby, that here, according to their laws, we lie".

Thank you veterans, modern Spartans.

:patriot: Too all my fallen brothers. Those I knew and those I didn't.

"All gave some. Some gave all"
