For myself Memorial Day's arrival has always been signified by the blooming of my Gardenia bush's. Each year for the last 13 years without fail they have bloomed at the end of May. Their fragrance covers the yard in a light breeze and with each whiff of scent I am reminded to enjoy it with all my blessing's. It also remind's me of many of our Comrades that will not enjoy with us the fruits of their ultimate sacrifice. The United States has always been the closest to governmental perfection of freedom and dignity of it's citizens. This is made possible only through our military. This Memorial Day whether you present a wreath at a tomb, March in a parade, Clean a gravesite of a Comrade, Attend a service and or a parade. Or get together with family and friends. Raise a glass and remember our Comrades that are unable to be with us. On behalf of VFW 2785: HONOR OUR FALLEN!
