Remembering Our Veterans

Memorial Day is a United States federal holiday observed on the last Monday of May. Formerly known as Decoration Day, it commemorates U.S. men and women who died while in the military service. First enacted to honor Union soldiers of the American Civil War, it was expanded after World War I to include American casualties of any war or military action.
Lucky and I, mom dad and PlusOne wish to remember, reflect and honor those who have given their all in service to their country.

We are very thankful also to those that gave their lives for our country. Yesterday mom went up to Willamette National Cemetery to take flowers and all the flags were breath taking,
