“Happy Birthday Paul on Memorial Day”


               Memorial Day – Man in Uniformimg050

Today  – May 30th – 2019 is the original Memorial Day  – the day to remember Civil War Veterans – but since we had to continue with  ALL Wars, and  we now include all War Veterans,  because we  all need an extra day or  two, just  to  make visits to   each  and every grave site  and “Decorate the Military Cemetery  with American Flags”  so  we do need  all of  the extra days.

  Today we celebrate Memorial Day  on the Monday right before the 30th of May and  that makes for a nice extended time to give HONOR to those,   that gave  the ultimate gift, their LIFE  for our FREEDOM, which  with  increasing days and times  so that  now,  we  all have a three-day weekend to Celebrate and give full honor to all our Veterans,  remembering them  in our PRAYERS,  to  pray that one day  soon,  if at all possible,  we will not have to ever have another War!

Paul Jung is the Veteran, today!  It is also his Birthday, TODAY!   Paul Jung was also in my class in German St. Vincent’s Orphan Home and I remember him saying that,  when he was a little kid,  “He could not figure out why he was a  “DECORATION” on his  own “BIRTHDAY”  just because,  everyone was doing all this and that,  and going to the cemetery,  and it was his Birthday”  so, now that I think about it,  I think he was kind of  “left out of the Birthday celebration”  just no  celebrating  going on for him? Only vague  memories, of what I heard and was told, as  I was not there,  and do not know  for sure how his childhood “Birthdays” were celebrated. So, from all of us   “old Grandma’s”  –  we wish you a  very “Happy Birthday Paul”   and  may Heaven be the best place to be – NOW  and forever!     D.V.
