Have a good Memorial Day !

We don't celebrate Memorial Day in Norway,
but I appreciate your celebration.
Our war losses are remembered and honoured on
our National Day, 17. May,
with speeches and flowers on the memorial monuments.

To all of you celebrating today, a good Memorial Day !

Thank-you Hanne. My husband and I drove through Willamette National Cemetary today and what a moving sight. It is a cemetary for military and their families. All the graves had American flags on the head stones, a see of red, white, and blue. It brought tears to my eyes. I will now remember your war dead as May 17th is DH birthday. I will say a prayer on that day for your fallen heros.
