Memorial Day 2005
Thank you

My 11 year old son wrote this for his 5th grade class and read it Friday to his entire shcool.

"Vets of all wars are remembered on Memorial day,from the American Revolution to Operation Iraqi Freedom, why don't we remember them and honor them every day of the year?"

I remembered this this morning as I was lowering my flag to half, brought a tear to my eyes, seeing my son standing there at attention with his hand over his heart.

He's a smart kid. Most of the time people go about their lives without even a single thought about the welfare of our vets.

Just make sure his mind don't get polluted growing up. Though I think in this case, we got a kid who's got his stuff together.

You, Sir have done an amazing job raising your son. You have done the job all American parents should do. You brought him up right. I envy you, and hope I can do as well a job.

Good job, Wolfen!

I just got back from the parade here. Much bigger turnout than in the years prior to 9/11. I think folks here at least, are remembering. The last three Memorial Days here have been grand affairs.

Great job of influencing a young mind. Give some credit to the way your family interacts about serious matters and be proud. Even some of the Legionnaires in our post didn't show up for a prayer breakfast (non denominational) for the troops.

It's encouraging to see some kids still value this day, most people in my area think this day was made just for their enjoyment...but that's NorCal for ya. Keep up the good work with your son.

Thank you everybody.
I teach both of my boys, and my daughter military history, and what each day means, theres certain things that they will never learn in school, and some of those are the most important things, and I swear as long as I live, my sons and my daughter will learn respect and love of country, and freedom
