Enjoy Memorial Day…But Remember The 1,354,664+Dead!

Mary is no longer available for RV traveling, but we remain good friends.
Because we have 4,000+ postings, I’ve invited her to continue posting entries on this blog.
I’m currently in my 22nd year of full-time RVing and my lifestyle is changing, For more info click Here

The motorhome is parked at VFW Post #9650 in Anderson, California. I’ll depart here tomorrow morning.




Enjoy Memorial Day…but remember the reason for it!



Yeah, most folks enjoy the Memorial Day weekend as a kickoff of the Summer season. Many totally ignore the real reason for Memorial Day.



According to this Wikipedia link there are 1,354,664+ dead from all U.S. Wars… http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_military_casualties_of_war
