Today ,Memorial Day has been unofficially expanded to being a day for gatherings, picnics and barbecues . Some will visit cemeteries to remember passed loved ones and family members who veterans of war
For many it is Holiday to reflect on the brave acts veterans.
I, with family, will remember my Grandmother and Grandfather both who served in World War II and my Great Uncle who’s life was taken by a grenade. Many others, as well.
“Woody Guthrie’s “This Land is My Land” … a favorite song of some veterans who’ve passed in my family, and who I’ll be remembering today .
