I copied the following from the Readers' View of my local newspaper written by a 73 year old veteran. Please take a moment to honor those who died in the service of our country. Honor the U.S. men and women who never made it back.

"Where are these farm boys, city boys, husbands, fathers, brothers, sisters, cousins, uncles and grandfathers who never made it back home?

France - Cemetery at Aisne-Marne ..... 2,289
France - Cemetery at Brittany ..... 4,410
France - Cemetery at Epinal ..... 5,525
France - Cemetery at Lorraine ..... 10,489
France - Cemetery at Normandy ..... 9,387
France - Cemetery at Oise-Aisne ..... 6,012
France - Cemetery at Rhone ..... 861
France - Cemetery at Somme ..... 1,844
France - Cemetery at St. Mihiel ..... 4,153
France - Cemetery at Suresnes ..... 1,541
France - Cemetery at Meuse-Argonne ..... 14,246
Belgium - Cemetery at Ardennes ..... 5,329
England - Cemetery at Brookwood ..... 468
England - Cemetery at Cambridge ..... 3,812
Belgium - Cemetery at Flanders Field ..... 368
Belgium - Cemetery at Heni-Chapelle ..... 7,992
Italy - Cemetery in Sicily ..... 7,861
Italy - Cemetery in Florence ..... 4,402
Luxembourg - Cemetery in Luxembourg City ..... 5,076
Netherlands - Cemetery at Margraten ..... 8,301

The above does not include our defenders of freedom buried in the Pacific, Korea and National Cemetery's across the nation. So enjoy your cup of coffee, your beer, your barbecue, your freedom, and at least put out a flag on Memorial Day."

Memorial Day is not a day to thank our living Veterans, it is a day to remember those we cannot thank in person.
