I am in need of input. I am looking for input, mostly from US Military members - gents and ladies, but open to all.
I have not served but have always strongly supported the US Military. I have always viewed Memorial Day for 'remembrance'... a time to reflect and honor those who have paid the ultimate price.
Maybe it is just me, but I have noticed what seems to be a change in how Memorial Day is presented. I have notice more focus on 'Celebrate' Memoral Day recently, rather than 'take time to remember'.
Is it just easier, faster to say 'Celebrate' than to explain the reason for the day? Or have folks lost sight of the day with all the 'PC', 'support the troops' attitude... and since the day is linked to the Military therefore 'support the troops!'...
Anyway.. I am sure it is just 'me'... but I would like some insight from others.
Thanks. And Thank you for your service.
