It's Memorial Day.. not veteran's day. This is the day for the ones that have lost their life. I hate when people mix it up. Also the ones that only post things about supporting the troops but only for attention. In reality could care less about our military or vets.

Oh I wish I could kiss you Mon!

As a military spouse with many widow friends it is so frustrating when people don't give a crap about honoring those that have lost their lives defending out country. Eau to be a douce Cafe Mom

I'm active duty. I find it offensive being thanked today. Today is not about us who are alive and well currently serving. Today is the men and women who have gone before me and made the ultimate sacrifice.
