Memorial Weekend

This weekend is an important one as we get ready to observe Memorial Day.

I am hoping that I will be feeling better by Monday so that I can attend the observance at the local cemetery.

Memorial Day - Little Arlington - Tracy, California - Graves of VeteransI have many memories of Memorial Day growing up. We would often go and visit my Dad’s parents and visit graves near the Iowa/Missouri border.

Veterans Day - Howard Braman - Vietnam - Germany - Korea - VFW - DAV - Military Burial - Houser Cemetery - Northboro, IowaOne of the cemeteries was the Houser Cemetery near Coin, Iowa where my Van Duzor ancestors are buried.

Memorial Day - Gun Volleys - Veterans - VFWI always remember seeing Veterans at the cemetery on Memorial Day as they go to honor their comrades who lost their life in service to our country.

Memorial Day - Franklin D. Roosevelt quote - Forget in time that men have died to win themI will try to join them on Monday as I remember this important day.
