Memorial Day, Monday May 26, 2008!

Please take time today to pray for our fallen heroes- those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for the freedoms that we are so blessed with in this great country of ours. And please take a moment to also honor those of our brave allies.

God Bless them all!!

You can also memorialize and honour our dead:

-by visiting cemeteries and placing flags or flowers on the graves of our fallen heroes.
-by visiting memorials.
-by flying the 'POW/MIA Flag' as well (Section 1082 of the 1998 Defense Authorization Act).
-by renewing a pledge to aid the widows, widowers, and orphans of our fallen dead, and to aid the disabled veterans. [I send donations to . They help families of fallen war heroes]

Great advice. I think we're going over to the Westwood VA Cemetery near UCLA today. Good time to reflect.

Today, too, I think of the mothers.
How many tears have fallen?

Z: That sounds wonderful.. I looked at some videos and read in the paper about some local fallen heroes. Brought tears to my eyes. God bless 'em all.

PATJ: It certainly does, Peej. Some very brave souls. We are blessed that there are, considering we don't have a draft and it is all volunteer.
