Memorial Day 2017....................

Memorial Day 2017:

This Saturday morning we once again gathered at Western Reserve National Cemetery to honor and respect the final resting place for many of those that have served in this nations Armed Forces. I am now one of only two people (the last volunteer)that have attended every memorial decoration ceremony since the cemetery was opened. I am blessed to still be able to attend and honor those who have served. This includes my father who had served in WWII and was interred here in 2003.

After the memorial service the group of several hundred volunteers made up of Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts and civic groups placed flags on about 33,000 grave sites. With that much support it took less than a hour.

I hope many of you will take a moment to remember and say "Thank You" to those that served.

I know this site has an international reach and I wish to thank all those that stood together in great times of need.

Remember all those that helped keep all of us free.

"Thank You."

Memorial day is a day of remembrance for those who lost their lives in service to their country. It is not a day about vets or retirees who are honored on Veterans day. Enjoy your weekend but take a moment to remember the sacrifice of those who died so you could live free.

@ Keeper

We Always Salute the Fallen Dead Who Served Our Country!

Marched in the Annual Memorial Day Parade in Northville, Michigan growing up (67 now) and We Always had Memorial Services at Two of the Town Cemetarys where We Literally Saluted the Fallen Dead Soldiers at Their Grave Sites!

Memorial Day 2018............

Memorial Day 2018:

Again this year on Saturday morning we once again gathered at Western Reserve National Cemetery to honor and respect the final resting place for many of those that have served in this nation's Armed Forces. I am now one of only two people (the last volunteer) that have attended every memorial decoration ceremony since the cemetery was opened. I am blessed to still be able to attend and honor those who have served. This includes my father who had served in WWII and was interred here in 2003.

After the memorial service the group of several hundred volunteers made up of Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts and civic groups placed flags on about 40,000 grave sites. With that much support it took about 45 minutes.

I have been reminded by some that must remain correct that Memorial Day is to remeber those that died in combat. That Veteren's Day is for honoring all who served and that Armed Forces Day is for those currently active.

I believe that given the chance we owe showing our gratitude to all who serve or served on this national day of recognition, including those of other countries that stand with and by us in times of great need.

I hope many of you will take a moment to remember and say "Thank You" to those that served.



"Thank You."

Memorial Day 2019.....

Memorial Day 2019:

Saturday I attended the 20th grave decorating day at Western Reserve National Cemetery to honor and respect the final resting place for many of those that have served in this nation's Armed Forces. As I have said before I am now one of only two people (the last volunteer, the other is an American Legion member that helps organize the event) that have attended every memorial decoration ceremony since the cemetery was opened in 2000. I am blessed to still be able to attend and honor those who have served. This includes my father who had served in WWII and was interred here in 2003.

This year as a thank you to the volenteers a special gold pin was issued to commerate this 20th annual event.



As in the past after the memorial service the group of several hundred volunteers made up of Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts and civic groups placed flags on about 40,000 grave sites.

A while back after I had posted I was reminded by some that Memorial Day is to remeber those that died in combat; that Veteren's Day is for honoring all who served and that Armed Forces Day is for those currently active.

I believe that given the chance we owe showing our gratitude to all who serve or served on this National day of recognition, including those of other countries that stand with and by us in times of great need.

I hope many of you will take a moment to remember and say "Thank You" to all those that served.

We Salute Your Sacrifice.

My great grandfather served and died in WWII.

It's thanks to those brave heroes that we now have the life we have today.

Thank you.

Today

Remember those who served before.
Remember those who are no more.
Remember those who serve today.
Remember them as we eat and play.
Remember our protectors-
who are not home today.
Remember them all on Memorial Day.
