Today I was cautious not to say "Happy Memorial Day" while I was working, because me too like other spouses/girlfriends/fiances Memorial Day should not be "happy." As I was thinking of all the things that I have been reading on Facebook and on blogs, I thought of what I wanted to share with you.
This was on many blogs, but I thought that Skinnie Piggie was one who explained it best. Her blog about Memorial Day is worth reading. Also at Boonie Caps & Tiaras she has been posting vids to commemorate Memorial Day, which is worth a look.
There is also a new article about how Time Doesn't Fly for Military Spouses which I also thought more people other than milspouses should read...Because we already know! If you would like to read an article on 5/2, the first stryker brigade in Afghanistan, you can read that here.
Etsy also is recognizing the military on their page, which I enjoyed reading also.
If you are a fan of 3 Doors Down on facebook, check out their page if you didn't see it already. They reminded all of their fans out there to remember Memorial Day too.
