USO’s suggestions for how to honor the nation’s fallen heroes

Memorial Day is always one of those days that comes with a weird feeling about how to approach things in the social media world. It’s clearly not the 4th of July with its fireworks & debauchery. You’ll see the morons who tweet ‘Happy Memorial Day’ or something like that because they don’t even stop and think about Memorial Day and what it stands for. Or they’re hollow inside and don’t care.

For those of you who are looking to do more than just post a message on social media and then let that serve as your part of honoring Memorial Day, USO has suggestions on how you can approach today:

  • Take a walk through a veterans cemetery
  • Learn about Gold Star families
  • Look into your own family’s military history
  • Study up on the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier – here

Personally, I’ll probably go down the rabbit hole on something I wrote about Saturday dealing with my own family. For those who missed it, my father received a letter from the U.S. Navy asking for a DNA sample to help identify the remains of someone who was killed in World War II. The military believes the remains are of my father’s great-uncle. My father wasn’t aware of a great-uncle killed in the war, so there are clearly multiple layers of shock here. My dad is still trying to figure out why the Navy has gone so far down the line with its search when there are other family members who would be closer in relation to the soldier, but he’s willing to help.

Now I’m intrigued by all this because this would be the family’s first known relative to have died in war. It’s fair to say this Memorial Day will be different around here as we try to piece together this puzzle.

  1. In Flanders fields the poppies blow
    Between the crosses, row on row,
    That mark our place; and in the sky
    The larks, still bravely singing, fly
    Scarce heard amid the guns below.

    We are the Dead. Short days ago
    We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
    Loved and were loved, and now we lie,
    In Flanders fields.

    Take up our quarrel with the foe:
    To you from failing hands we throw
    The torch; be yours to hold it high.
    If ye break faith with us who die
    We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
    In Flanders fields.

    Thanks, Joe. Nice caps today. Hardest working man on the internet
