We always try to be mindful to display our flag on Memorial Day and other such appropriate days in memory of those lives who serve and/or served our country and gave all. Thank you for answering.

Woo hoo, dear Paula! Yes, let it fly all year, I say too. My dad served in Korea and Viet Nam and came back with terrible PTSD, back then they were not really talking about it, he suffered. It broke my heart. God bless America. I love your Heart!
Theresa...I can't believe you said that!! My Dad, bless his heart suffered from the same, which as you said was not identified as PTSD....they just called it a "break down." We all went through a lot in those days.
My dad flew in Nam, too. He didn't suffer from PTSD, but he's been in a nursing home for three years now with emphysema. He quit smoking years ago. I just wonder if those one-seater fighter jets he flew had something to do with it.
Hi Paula & Sha, yes, we all went through some stuff. As our Dusty (50 Caliber) called it shellshock when he commented on my poem about being A Soldier's Child. It makes me cry each time I read it. I have it highlighted for this weekend. God bless
Thank you so much, Word. And thank you to all of your family who are serving or served. God bless them all and God bless America.
Thanks crazymom3, you're not so crazy : ) ... I appreciate you taking the time to answer. Peace to all on this Memorial Day.
Hi feenix, Awesome to the patriotic Man Cave with the patriotic man in it, YOU! God bless you and your Man Cave there in NY City. I love the good ole USA too.
Theresa, this is what is called "Fleet Week" in NYC. There is a whole armada of US Navy ships docked on the edge of the city in the Hudson River, and thousands of uniformed Sailors and Marines can be seen all over town. I am proud to be an American.
Oh, really, feenix! That is awesome and what a sight to behold. God bless them all. I am proud to be an American too and living in the land of the free and home of the brave, as the song goes.
That is awesome, dear Sha! Yes, I think we should honor them year-round too. My dad was in the U.S. Army and my husband in the Air Force, plus countless of other family and friends who served. Amen, dear heart. Thank you for caring so deeply!
Notice the only things living in my planter are the American flags! I'm soooo behind in gardening.
Oh, cool! Thanks for sharing your photo here! How creative, lovely woman. Me too, on the gardening : )
Hi Kevin, you can always display the smaller ones easily found at any store if you wanted to do so. Happy Memorial Day. We are having glorious weather. Bless you
I do not believe that I did not catch "lookde"!!
That's okay, Kevin, I understood what you meant. Bless you
I know that you did Faith, I just cannot believe that I did it.
I understand and believe me, I do it all the time ... we are just human, but when we see it, we cringe when others may not even notice a thing. Enjoy your day. It is gorgeous here! Peace and love to you
Thank you, it is wonderful here too. I just hope that tonight gets a little warmer than the last few nights.
Well, the rain hit us pretty hard yesterday and they are saying it will rain all week long, but the sun it trying to come out now. We'll see. Peace to you on the Memorial Day.
Today was supposed to be rain/T-storms all day here. It has been sun in and out so far. We are supposed to get T-storms all week. We will see what we get.
Happy Memorial Day to you. :-)
