    It's always good to teach the kids about the ## names on the World War stone--since it was engraved before WW2--and the ## names from WW2.

    Kids were asking about the ## from Vietnam because their ranks are given with their branch of service--and ## from Korea.
    Quite the sacrifice for a small town.
    Good on all of y'all, man. I know it was a grand time for all involved. (Too early for famous Illinois cream corn, however. Right? )


    Have you received a card from the VA or a Nearby Mental Health Clinic yet?
    One of the Commanders spoke of it today and wasn't too pleased with the confusion coming from th VA.
    I'm surmising it was about PTSD and will look into it.
    Sounds like out-reach clinics the VA may use at local Hospitals with excellent Mental Health Clinics .
    Nothing yet from my local VA and I am on their mailing list. But then again, my local VA is Phoenix. From what I read it remains cluster****.

    I spend all day at military graves in reverence and in total silence...

    Possibly both.

    Yes, we should solemnly remember but also celebrate what those lives meant. Same with civilian funerals. I love hearing about people having a great time at a funeral!

    Then why address your comments regarding attacking Obama to me, especially when I have already directly addressed the issue to the one that did?

    The BBQ is to help remember the people who were burned to death by firebombs.

    An Irish wake.
    My Aunt and Uncle when I was growing up, had one of the larger houses and wakes were held there due to small community and many not able to afford a funeral home.
    Where tea was on the stove and food was plentiful. People grieved and laughed and most importantly remembered the deceased and the community was brought closer by this.
