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.....

    I'm sorry that you are so sensitive. Realize that the US Memorial Day site says "Memorial Day, originally called Decoration Day, is a day of remembrance for those who have died in our nation's service." No disrespect was intended.

    Not sensitive, just would like it to be used correctly. It's for rememberence of those that died in this nation's wars.
