Memorial Day, What is it to You?

FlagMemorial Day, What is it to You?  I was raised in the Mid-West and then here in Mountain Home, Arkansas.  A Holiday like Memorial Day is important to most of the people that I know. 

My Dad, Duane Howard, served Our country during The Korean Conflict.  Officially a Police Action.  Thousands of Americans Served and paid the ultimate price fighting for their country.  My dad was by his own statement, a lucky man.  He served in Korea, and came home to start a family.  Memorial Day, What is it to You?

There will be parades for the holiday, and there will be flags.  Here in the Twin Lakes Areaof the Ozarks, it seems to be the Official Kick Off to the summer boating season.  I Love playing on Lake Norfork or Bull Shoals Lake.  I sincerely hope that everyone has a great time...full of picnics, boating, ballgames, or just a quiet time.  Memorial Day, What is it to You? 

Tell a Vet Thank You.  Remember those that paid the awesome price so that we can enjoy the Freedoms that we enjoy.  Memorial Day, What is it to You?

It reminds me how passionate my father was to serve and how disapointed he was when he was discharged for medical reasons. He joined the merchant Marine so he could still contribute. If our young people had the same perspective, we would all be better off. Happy Memorial Day

John--Thanks to your father for his service during the Korean War.  Like you I enjoy the water at this time of year.  Our yacht club has tribute to veterans at the Opening Day ceremony on Sunday.

John, Memorial day.  REMEMBER those that have served. REMEMBER those that have given their lives for our freedom. Say a prayer for those that ARE serving.
