When was he was on Big E. I'm guessing after 9/11 and no Iraq time. I was on big E for the 06 cruise.

Oh glory how I have not the proper words to say how thankful I am for all that have served. Your unselfish acts stand high in our family thank you very much.

Also want to thank the parents that raised unselfish children that they put their own lives on the line or gave up their lives for our country to remain free. Thank you to all the spouses that keep the home fronts going essentially being a single parent in most cases. To all the brother & sisters, aunts & uncles and grandparents that have service members in your families thank you for the unslept hours, pins & needles waiting by the phone and for the love to support our soldiers.

God bless you all and keep you safe.

Actually, Monday , Memorial Day, we honor the dead ( both those that died in combat and those that died after returning home and living a civilian life.)

That is why gaveyards have a flag on EVERY vet's grave whether he died in combat or died 60 years later.

Veterans Day is when we honor all veterans living or dead.
( they really should be honored 365 days ------IMHO )

Most hometown newspapers, in my area, have a list of all who served and where they are buried and publish it every year in the weekly paper closest to Memorial Day.
