My twin nephews are to be honored at the ceremony at The Capitol in DC on Sunday. It's supposed to be televised on PBS at 8 pm with Gary Sinese and Joe Montegna portraying their story. I'm sure it will be a small segment but a real honor for both boys. I'm proud of them and all who serve.

Today is the day we put aside to remember fallen heroes and to pray that no heroes will ever have to die for us again.
Itís a day of thanks for the valor of others, a day to remember the splendor of America
and those of her children who are our true heroes.
Itís a day to be with family and remember their heroic valor.

"WW2 Marine's diary: A brief look at a brief life"

Here is a brief article about a Marine killed at Peleliu. Since this is one of the maps in the new game, thought some of you may find it interesting.

History of Memorial Day




Memorial Day, originally called Decoration Day, is a day of remembrance
for those who have died in our nation's service.


There are many stories as to its actual beginnings, with over two dozen cities and towns laying claim to being the birthplace of Memorial Day. There is also evidence that organized women's groups in the South were decorating graves before the end of the Civil War: a hymn published in 1867, "Kneel Where Our Loves are Sleeping" by Nella L. Sweet carried the dedication "To The Ladies of the South who are Decorating the Graves of the Confederate Dead" (Source: Duke University's Historic American Sheet Music, 1850-1920). While Waterloo N.Y. was officially declared the birthplace of Memorial Day by President Lyndon Johnson in May 1966, it's difficult to prove conclusively the origins of the day. It is more likely that it had many separate beginnings; each of those towns and every planned or spontaneous gathering of people to honor the war dead in the 1860's tapped into the general human need to honor our dead, each contributed honorably to the growing movement that culminated in Gen Logan giving his official proclamation in 1868. It is not important who was the very first, what is important is that Memorial Day was established. Memorial Day is not about division. It is about reconciliation; it is about coming together to honor those who gave their all.

Memorial Day is observed on the last Monday of May. It was formerly known as Decoration Day and commemorates all men and women, who have died in military service for the United States. Many people visit cemeteries and memorials on Memorial Day and it is traditionally seen as the start of the summer season.
