This Memorial Day, Honor our Fallen U.S. Soldiers, Veterans & Active Military
Take a moment to reflect on the many brave men and women who have given their lives in the service and protection of our great country. With the approach of Memorial Day and all year long, we salute, thank and honor all who have served.
To honor the fallen soldiers visit the online casualty memorial at www.vetfriends.com/
A Memorial Day parade/events directory is also available for people to find events in their area to show their support. The directory highlights locations, dates and times of the Holiday's events at www.vetfriends.com/
An online Memorial Day Forum dedicated to all U.S. veterans and military personnel, past and present, living and deceased can be viewed at www.vetfriends.com/
U.S. veteran T. Cromack writes to the forum:
"Whenever I smell the fragrance of lilacs, I think of Memorial Day. It was called Decoration Day when I was in the third grade and we laid lilacs on the graves of veterans. Today, I wear my outdated uniform and march with any veteran's group participating in local parades. God Bless those who are willing to 'Lay down their life for their fellow man.'"
