MEMORIAL DAY--Roaming Boomer's Vietnam Vet's Memorial photo says it best

An online place to go this Memorial Day, The National Memorial Day Concert

Are you having trouble getting the spirit of Memorial Day this weekend?  It's easy to miss that the reason is to celebrate and remember the sacrifices of those who have fought our many wars. 

We walked by the site for the National Memorial Day Concert at the U.S. Capitol and we were impressed with the crowds.  Then we went back to the apartment and watched it on television. 

The concert was fitting and it was a living reminder of those who made the ultimate sacrifice.  Actors read eulogies for vets from World War II and Vietnam.  Here's the website for the show and for the occasion.  It's worth a look.
