Thanks, Curt.

Today is not for those of us who served and survived. It's for the heroes who didn't.

  Curt, yours and many others hearts are in the right place, but here are the reasons for the 3 most important U.S. Military's oriented holidays.

i like to think weve made advances in our mental health care for those who served
the suicide numbers can and should come down.
i accept battlefeild causalties but we need to continuie to work on post deployment mental health support of those who served
Im really hoping towards the end of summer we (project healing waters) and (wounded warriors) the 2 ive been involved in can return to post pandemic operations on the water
other than that fished starvation friday

  Bob, although I was well aware of most of the history behind Memorial Day, some of the details in the link you provided were new info to me. Thanks for posting that.

I totally agree.  I once saw an episode of "Star Treck The Next Generation" where the theme of the show was a group of "soldiers" that had been genetically and mentally altered to make them super soldiers.  Once the war was done the planet that made them isolated them, like a prison, rather than try to undue what they had done to them.  

Yes, I know that this is ONLY A TV SHOW, but as a vet myself (USARMY, 1983-1987), I saw a lot of truth in this myself.  The TV show kind of stuck a sore spot.

I hope that advances are being made, for those that society relies on and trust to defend the freedoms we all enjoy.  Even those that did not serve in combat were, by necessity, altered by their training, and I for one was just given a DD214 and sent out the door upon ETS (end of time in service).  PS, I was well decorated, so I was one of the "lucky" ones, or so I am told.

But, Memorial Day is a day to remember those that fell in combat, not those of us that survived.
