Today is Memorial Day in the U.S. I realize not everyone on this site will celebrate it but, to those that do I hope all have a safe weekend.

Yes, since rogbow posted a notice for Memorial Day last year, I thought it would be fitting that I do the honors this year.

Despite the fact a gaming company posted this video, I think it was quite well done and fitting for the occasion:

Thank You GaryOak for making this post. I was thinking about this yesterday but, I had been so busy I had not had the time to make the post. But, you did well done and nice video Very Happy

This year was my father and I's turn to clean our family's graves/tombstones up for Memorial Day and place wreaths,flowers and flags which we have worked on for the last several days. Also I am going to drive my car in the annual Memorial Day Parade in just a few hours which I have been getting ready for as well.

I hope everyone who celebrates this holiday has a very safe weekend as well.




Now I would like to remember a few of my fighting brothers from the U.S.S. Saratoga CV-60 who gave the ultimate sacrifice in the name of freedom.

In the Netherlands we don't have a day like Memorial Day, but we do have a similar day and we call it Libaration Day, which is celebrated on the 5th of May .... it is the day that the Germans signed the surrender in the Netherlands
We do remember all militairy men and woman wich left their lives for our freedom...
The King and Queen are laying wreaths at the monument in Amsterdam, which is called "de Dam"
exactly at 20.00hrs we hold two minutes of silence to remember all those people... Crying or Very sad
