US Memorial Day

Posted by Bruce Kahl on May 28, 2005

Memorial Day, originally called Decoration Day, is a day of remembrance for those who have died in our nation's service.

World War 1--112,000
World War 2--292,000
Korea--33,741
Vietnam--58,178
Iraq (5.27.05)--1,653

If you have a chance maybe a moment of silence and a prayer for the hungry, thirsty, scared, lonely and tired youngsters who are now serving.
