Memorial Day

Please take time to honor those who died while serving. This isn't about being a Veteran as that is a separate day later on in the year.
Memorial Day is in remembrance of those who died defending our country and Freedom.
I plan to visit the grave of a soldier who died in the Ia Drang Valley in 1965. His name is SFC Carl Palmer who was a Member of C Co 7 Cav, 1st Cavalry Division. He died one day before his fortieth birthday.
RIP to all of our military who paid the ultimate sacrifice.

I was on funeral duty rotation for ~6 months while in Georgia: many small towns, many sacrifices.
