Memorial Day is a United States federal holiday which occurs every year on the final Monday of May. Memorial Day is a day of remembering the men and women who died while serving in the United States Armed Forces. Formerly known as Decoration Day, it originated after the American Civil War to commemorate the Union and Confederate soldiers who died in the Civil War. By the 20th century, Memorial Day had been extended to honor all Americans who have died while in the military service.
In remembrance of all who have made the sacrifice and didn't return.
But I still keep in mind all those that made the sacrifice and did return also! -- time nor tide wait for no man...
Remembering all who served and sacrificed. Watching movies all weekend to remember. Just watched Back to Bataan, which is an important story for me especially for my love of the Filipino people and our struggle together to resist the Axis powers.
Thanks to all of you who served, thank you from the bottom of my heart, what a price you pay for your patriotism. God bless. -- Join Teams Helix and Discovery.

Wow. The American and Filipino resistance and suffering against the hand of the Imperial Japanese always blows me away, I think what if it were me? Next time I go back there, I want to visit that place and remember those who sacrificed. Sadly, few kids today even know what a "Bataan" is, nor know where the Philippines is. That is the thing about movies, even though they aren't accurate much of the time, they give memory and thought to important events, and those that get inspired by cinema investigate further and learn the real facts if they are available.
