Memorial Day 2014...thanks to God And All Those Lives Lost, the day is upon us. This weekend, when the rain clouds roll in, take the opportunity to put down the meat tongs and put out the flame on your grill. Do what every American was meant to do on this National day of Observance. Pay tribute to those who served in our armed forces, especially those who never got the chance to return home alive.
This weekend, there are some subscription online services that are taking this weekend to provide their collections of military records and photographs free of charge to anyone who wishes to view them.
Ancestry.com, Fold3,.com and FamilySearch.org are but a few of these online websites that will afford you the opportunity to read, observe and learn about those who lost their lives fighting for your right to a life of freedoms here in America.
You know the drill by now. Take off your hats, put your hand over your hearts, gaze upon the American flag that flew over every American battlefield where soldiers lost their lives so that you can live free. Not sure of what freedoms you have? Read the Bill of Rights. Then think of what your life would be like without just one of those rights.
By the way, don't let your hamburgers and hotdogs burn. Remember to turn them over. God bless the U.S.A.
