@newziesuzie, My favorite is called I believe, THE Wall.  It tore my heart out years ago. It shows a civilian who is touching the VN wall and on the other side, are some of his gone fellow soldiers. It breaks your heart.

Re: 🇺🇸MEMORIAL DAY🇺🇸

I thought this might be a good place to acknowledge the fact that ALL members of a military family serve this country.  We one person signs up he/she is really signing up the entire family to serve this country.

 

When my late husband and I married (back in the mid 60's) almost all males were in the military in some way.  Today it's voluntary.  

 

My friend and I were talking about some of the benefits that would help military family and make life easier (were they to happen).

 

One change I'd like to see is that the children of military families could go to any college in the US (except private colleges) (i.e. University of Va, etc) and pay the same prices as a resident.

 

I understand that a military member can claim any state as his home state (for tax purposes); but I think the children who are going to state colleges should be allowed to pay 'in state' tuition fees.

 

It would save these families a lot of money.  My friend's relative is in the military.  The father is stationed in Michigan.  The daughter decided she wants to go to the University of Va (to be near her Grandmother, who just lost her husband).

 

She will have to pay 'out of state' fees.  I think for active military families the children should be able to pay 'in state' fees.

 

It would be a benefit given to those who serve this country.
