Today – May 30th – 2014 is the original Memorial Day – the day to remember Civil War Veterans – but since we had to continue with Wars – – we now include all War Veterans – and because we need a day to visit each grave site and “Decorate the Military Cemetery with American Flags ” – we do need an extra day – – So, Today we celebrate Memorial Day on the Monday right before the 30th of May and – now we have a three-day weekend to Celebrate and give full honor to all our Veterans – and pray that one day – 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 “BIRTHDAY” – because – everyone was doing all this and that – and going to the cemetery – and it was his Birthday” – and now that I think about it – I think he was kind of left out of the Birthday celebrating for him? Only vague memories – 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 – “Happy Birthday Paul” – and may Heaven be the best place to be – forever!
