    Was just thinking this. When we made it out of Iraq without any fatalities I was overjoyed. Lost four brothers since then. One died in his sleep, three dead in a training accident. Memorial Day comes around I always get moody, just a damned shame to lose good men and watch their families hurting.

    To some I know they are just names on a wall.

    But to those of us who knew them they are far more.

    Especially since Iraq, it isn't a happy long weekend of grilling and throwing cornhole with the family.

    I always stop by and see my best friend from back then. I just want to be alone with the memories, have a drink, and stick a flag in the ground six feet above him.

    The really sad part is to most it is just a 3 day weekend !!

    To all those who have moved on To Valhalla I fear it could be a short stay .

    I’ll admit, I prefer Memorial Day to the 4th. At least there isn’t explosions going on for days and days.
