Memorial Day

May 29, 2011

Two holidays have always made me sentimental: Memorial Day and Veterans Day. I am sentimental because these two days celebrate those who served, something I never had to do. In some sense, not having served is one of the few regrets in life I have. The following is a list of friends and family who have served. Honor them with me.

Thank you for honoring these men and women. There are more who should be listed here and there may be some errors for those listed. If you have additions or corrections, please let me know.

The troubled world can offer no award
To you who sleep beneath the chiseled stone.
You died because we handed you the sword,
And we are free because you sleep alone.

The tides of history well may change the cause,
And time may blunt the sharpness of the debt,
For sacrifice, a nation under laws
Is gathered here today, lest we forget.

–Robert A. Hall

I won’t forget!
