Memorial Day

It's become a faddish thing of late to thank veterans for their service, especially on holidays like today.

But this is not Veteran's Day.  My fellow vets and I will be the first to tell you, don't thank us today.  We have a day.  It's November 11.

Today is the day we remember and honor those who gave the ultimate sacrifice.  This is the day we remember those who never made it home. 

So, don't thank me today.  Save that for my day.  This one is theirs. 

And as General Patton once said, let us thank God that such men lived.
