Memorial Day - 2010

(4402 Americans buried at Florence American Military Cemetery,
south of Florence, Italy)


WHAT IS MEMORIAL DAY?

As we approach this long Memorial Day holiday weekend we here at A Bubbling Cauldron hope you will find some time to stop and contemplate exactly what this holiday is all about. In case your memory is a little vague on the subject, Wikipedia provides you with a little help, HERE.

LIVES LOST
To remind you just why we honor our fallen troops, here's a little chart that will give you some perspective. It tallies up more than a million lives lost in combat fighting to defend our country. This weekend please bow your head in gratitude to those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedoms.
REPRISE
A couple years ago I wrote about this holiday. I think you may find that entry worth re-reading HERE.

NEVER FORGET
Now, let singer LeAnn Rimes help you contemplate this holiday.

Remembering United States Air Force Flight Officer Edmund Anthony Jachacz - 20th Air Force, 468th Bomb Group. And the best father-in-law, too.
