    One Vet to Another Vet

    Thanks to all of you for service to our country, whether you were (or are) "in country", logistic support, ready reserves, military home security, etc. I salute you for the willingness to defend and honor the great nation we have and love!

    I have an interesting aside to this thread... I had a Wonderful experience yesterday!! I wear the POW/MIA bracelet of a Special Forces Hero who was lost in Cambodia in 1968, Robert F. Scherdin...have for many years. Yesterday I received an e-mail from his Cousin!! It was terrific, and I can only wonder at the spirits that conspired to let him find me...a new treasured memory in my life, that's certain.

    Ektarr, that's great to hear. We found a POW/MIA bracelet in my dad's watch box after he passed away. I felt a duty to find out what had become of this serviceman. It took several months with posts on POW forums, before I was pleased to learn Capt. Lengyel returned from Viet Nam and, at the time of the report, was living in Texas.

    I do not want to start a flame war, but Memorial Day is a military day meant for the rememberance of Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines of the Armed Forces that have died. I find it disrespectful to include anyone else. It is not meant for civilian deaths or to honor those outside of the military. Please do some research and have some respect for those personel and their families that have sacrificed more than most who go home daily after work.....

    Memorial Day is a United States federal holiday observed on the last Monday of May (May 31 in 2010). Formerly known as Decoration Day, it commemorates U.S. soldiers who died while in the military service.[1] First enacted to honor Union soldiers of the American Civil War – it is celebrated near the day of reunification after the Civil War – it was extended after World War I to honor Americans who have died in all wars.
