Memorial Day – Man in Uniform


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!
