Apropos of your thoughts, When we were kids, didn't we call this "Decoration Day"?
Time was spent putting wreaths on the graves of Vets, and reflecting on thier sacrifice.
Warm & Kind regards

2012: MEMORIAL DAY: A DAY TO REMEMBER
I will be posting a few military related posts interspersed with my regular menu of local history posts. With the passing of my brother 2 weeks ago, this solemn day will take on a special meaning. Remember: Memorial day isn't just a long weekend around the barby; it is a day of recollection, gratitude and prayer for those who served and some who gave their life for our country.
