Memorial Day 2015
I spent an hour yesterday at the Fort Jackson National Cemetery in Columbia, S.C. It is one of the newer national cemeteries. As I walked among the headstones and read dates of birth and death, service branch information and names of wars such as World War Two and Vietnam, my thoughts were constantly of "all gave some; some gave all."
This cemetery was opened for burials in 2009 and many of the markers were those of older veterans.
Please pause today and remind your family of what Memorial Day is really about.
