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.
