Memorial Day

It's another year and another holiday for most.

I'm sure most of us have had family that have served during a war. Some of us have even had family killed during a war.

For those who have been removed from personal experiences with the above, I would point you to a website. It lists the US Congressional Medal of Honor winners and what they did to receive the honor.

http://www.history.army.mil/moh.html

I go there from time to time. Some of the experiences ... well, I certainly don't envy either side in those instances.

My best wishes to those who have served and to their families. I know I haven't forgotten their sacrifices. Thank you.

Re: Memorial Day

Yes!
Thank You to all veterans, active duty, retired, reserves and for those who gave their lives, a moment of silence.

My husband and I served during Nam, my brother was KIA in Nam, my dad was AF career, as well as various uncles, cousins in WWII & Korea, going clear back to the Civil War where my great Grandfather served w/the Indiana Volunteers.

I also warmly remember George Simcox Sensei (Ki Society). I had some really nice chats with him on the Aikido-L. Simcox sensei, my dad and my brother are all buried in Arlington National Cemetery.
An honor to be sure.

Kristina
