How To Observe Memorial Day

Post  Doc on Fri May 25, 2012 10:26 am

"...gather around their sacred remains and garland the passionless mounds above them with choicest flowers of springtime....let us in this solemn presence renew our pledges to aid and assist those whom they have left among us as sacred charges upon the Nation's gratitude,--the soldier's and sailor's widow and orphan."
--General John Logan, General Order No. 11, 5 May 1868


Redleg posted this and I just wanted to share it here, I will be going over to Ft. Gibson National Cemetery to place some flowers on my Dad's grave before we gather with friends to grill some steaks.

I wish everyone have a safe and wonderful Memorial Day Weekend! thumbup
