Memorial Day is not a day to thank veteran's... I am a disabled Iraq war veteran myself and find it insensitive when people thank me for my service on this day. Its not a day to thank those who came back whether injured or not. Its a day to reflect and appreciate those who gave the ultimate sacrifice (whether the war was warranted, populuar or unpopular).

I won't be online most of that day as I'll be at Fort Snelling's cemetery visiting "old friends". So keep this thought in mind, and I really try to live this quote on days such as this.

"It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died. Rather we should thank God that such men lived." 
George S. Patton

I'll always miss my old friends...
