No matter what you political persuasion, or idiology, please take a moment today to remember those that serve to defend our nation.

It's to our nation's officers as well as the grunts directing the business end of war that we owe our freedom.

Thank you.

I was kickin' back at the crib on Memorial Day sippin' a cold one, enjoyin' the day and spinnin' tunes. I had no problem listening to Country Joe & the Fish's "Feel Like I'm Fixin' To Die Rag" and "Maria" back to back with Merle Haggard's "Oakie From Muskogie" and "Fightin' Side Of Me". It's the Jungian thing...the duality of man...the Yin vs. the Yang. I think I relate best to the Anarchists and Dada movement of the 1920's. To quote the late National Lampoon editor Doug Kenny when asked in a Playboy Magazine interveiw about his political views - "If you can't f#ck it, blow it up!"

If I must say so, Merle's "Fightin Side of Me" brings a tear to my eye everytime I hear it.

My uncle Mike enlisted in the Marines as a young man. He did two tours of duty on the ground in Vietnam. Part of his second tour he was as a tunnel rat. Uncle Mike has be gone now for a few years. He was a proud man who was very proud to serve his country as he is greatly missed. I will be thinking of him today and please thank a veteran and shake their hand when you meet one. It's a very small gesture that can mean so much.

Well said Trav....never forget those who have in the past and those who still make freedom possible. A nod above to my late great Dad, a Pearl Harbor survivor.

I have walked through more cemeteries than I can count over the years. Mainly I've done this in search of my family roots but I also have a love of history. This time of year you can't help but notice the flags placed on the graves of veterans. Be it a large mega cemetery or a tiny family plot in the country I always see flags. From the oldest stone that can no longer be read to brand new stones there are flags. Veterans groups place these flags to honor those who have served and passed on. After all of the picnics and mattress sales today are done and your on your way home and pass a cemetery take a moment and notice all of the flags. The memories of these people are what this holiday is for.
