A Grateful Nation: Remembering Those Who Died in Military Service

Monday is Memorial Day here in the US. We tend to celebrate this holiday with department-store sales and cookouts, but it’s meant to be a time for reflection, offering honor to those who gave their lives in military service and to the loved ones they left behind.

To all the Gold Star families who have lost loved ones during military service, I send my personal well-wishes, to go along with the thanks of a grateful nation.

Do you know anyone who died in military service? Can you share their story in the comments?

    • Thanks for the reblog. I haven’t lost anyone in the service , but know many who served, including my father. He was an Army radio man in Paris after the Germans left, near the end of WWII. Respect to all who served or are serving, and to families who lost those they loved.
