Memorial Day 2013

Now that Our Dad is home, on this Memorial Day our thoughts and prayers are with all those families and friends who’ve lost loved ones. Recently as a family, we helped the local VFW and Scouts programs replace flags at veterans’ graves of those from the Revolutionary War, Grand Army of the Republic and the Greatest Generation.

"Our Scout" places American Flags at the local graves of Revolutionary War Veterans in honor of Memorial Day.

Today, Our Dad visited with some patriotic students in New York City to thank them for all their support during his deployment in Afghanistan. It was covered by some local media and it’s comforting to know that children all over the U.S. recognize the importance of Memorial Day.

We encourage you to enjoy this clip of coverage of today’s events from Cindy Hsu of CBS News (click this link!): http://newyork.cbslocal.com/video?autoStart=true&topVideoCatNo=default&clipId=8912684

Happy Memorial Day to all at home and afar and special thanks to all those in the Armed Forces. Let us all remember — not only those we’ve lost but those who remain.

More coming soon . . .

Late night without Jay Leno? Not until we’ve featured a visit with Our Dad’s Flag! But oddly enough, his proposed replacement Jimmy Fallon never did return Our Dad’s Flag  to us . . . Hmm. Hope we don’t have to wait until 2014! Stay tuned.
