A Solemn and Somber Memorial Day / Remembrance Day Observance and Contemplation wished for all, particularly those Loved Ones / Friends and others whom have served in combat and paid the ultimate price in the defense of Our National Homes here in the United States and abroad.
My VFW Home Post is still under quarantine, but the State of Colorado and others are now slowly opening many churches and places of faith, and in great concern formerly 'non- essential' businesses comprising a large part of our economy. We have to be very careful in particular concern for protecting our most senior members who will be gathering and sharing again once our home post is safely coming off of lock down.
Later today I will be going to Fort Logan National Cemetery near me here in SW Denver to pay homage to those interred in that Hallowed Ground and to pay my respects for them all, and especially the grave sites of those I had known personally for many years like Brothers and Sisters.
So everyone -- enjoy your time off and those BBQs with family and friends if you can, all along bearing in mind the reason for this holiday, and please take pause today for a moment of silence in honoring those whom have paid the ultimate sacrifice for our freedoms that a lot of people simply overlook.
