Please take the time to remember our fallen heroes this weekend. Lay flowers at a grave. Attend a parade. Spend some of this weekend to thank a veteran for serving.
Here is a link to a commercial that touched me. Both my Dad (WWII) and myself (Vietnam Era, Cold War, Operation Iraqi Freedom) served. My Dad was still around to welcome me home from Iraq. Since we were both Sergeants, there was no salute. But there was the proud hug.
