@Cakers....thank you for posting these beautiful pictures.  I always remember.  Thinking about my Daddy that served in both Korean and WWII as a Captain.  He had horrible nightmares after he returned home.  My uncle was a Chief Petty Officer in the navy and is buried at Arlington National Cemetery.  My Dad served about 6 years and my uncle retired from the navy.  I miss my Daddy and thank him and all service members for their dedication.  They sacrifice so much for all of us.

@Cakers   Thank you for posting these.  I will remember.  My father was in the Korean War and talked about it often.

My father and all my uncles on both sides of my family served in WW2. My father's younger brother, who is now 96, was wounded at the Battle of the Bulge and was honored with a medal. He never talked about his service as a medic. He is the lone survivor of my dad's and my mom's brothers. All came back from the war but these veterans are leaving us each and every day. I honor their service and their sacrifice.

I do remember and not only on Memorial Day.  I honor each and every one , men and women , who  fought to keep us free.  I honor those who are sacrificing today still fighting for freedom.  These are heroes and may God bless them for their sacrifices.

Memorial Day is to honor those who have died serving in the U.S. Armed Forces. My father, who was in WWII and Korea, served but did not (thankfully) die.

 

While I think of him often, and even on Memorial Day, his day of honor is Veterans Day.

@Sushismom   You are correct.

 

Memorial Day belongs strictly to those who died serving, not to those currently serving or who have served.
