Memorial Day

By Steve Jones, 2010/05/31

A holiday in the US, commemorating the men and women who have died in the service of our country.

Most years in the US, I’ve spent the day with family, starting summer, and while we remember those in the military, it’s primarily been a time where we spend time with each other, often doing something as a family. We’ve used the time to go away, usually taking a long weekend camping or traveling around.

This year my son is participating in a Scout event, commemorating those that have died from our local area, at a local cemetery. He is hoping to serve our country in the Marine Corps at some point in his life, so this is a meaningful holiday for him, and I’m proud to be there helping him celebrate it.
