Happy Memorial Day 2014

Today is Memorial Day.
 Memorial Day is a day of remembering the men and women who died while serving. We have a monument here in Owensboro that represents the wars and has the names of those who lost their lives fighting for our country. 
I visited the monument yesterday.

The wall is huge. 


Each war is represented


The names of those who died are on each war monument



There was only 1 flag flying so I brought my own. 

Have a safe Memorial Day. 
No drinking and driving! 
Be safe around the barbecue
and 
say a prayer for the men and women who 
are fighting for us today so their names 
aren't added to this list. 

Happy Memorial Day! 
Love,
the 
Patriotic Poodale

  3. That monument is way too big with too many names. I hope no one ever has to be added again. Peace out. Love the holiday look, Carma.

    1. You are right. That monument is too big because of too many lives lost. My heart hurt for all the family and friends who they left behind.
