It's not Happy Memorial Day...

The Old Guard transports Sergeant Major George W. Dunaway at Arlington.
I’m frustrated by people all over the country who view the day as anything but a day to remember our WAR DEAD. I hate hearing people say “Happy Memorial Day.”
It’s not Veterans Day. It’s not military appreciation day. Don’t thank a veteran for their service on this day. It’s take the time to pay homage to the men and women who died while wearing the cloth of this great nation you’re so freely enjoying today and every day.
So yeah. I’m frustrated by Memorial Day. And I’m angry about apathy, but see I wear this bracelet every day so I will never forget my heroes.

What do you do on Memorial Day to honor those that gave you your freedom?
