Thank you to All Our Servicemen and Women! Memorial Day is a time to reflect and be thankful for all of the sacrifices that men and women have made and continue to make to protect the freedom and liberty of all of us regular folks. To the Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force, JAG, doctors, everyone who was ever on the front lines, THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!!!!
Sites where you can pay tribute to soldiers and immerse yourself in history: The World War II Museum in Caen, France; The Churchill Museum and Cabinet War Rooms, London; The Vietnam Memorial, Washington, D.C.; The National World War II Museum, New Orleans; The Jewish Museum, Berlin.
To remember what they’ve been through, a few films and tv series to watch: Letters from Iwo Jima, Band of Brothers, Saving Private Ryan, Flags of Our Fathers, and The Messenger.If you’re in NYC and want to do something for Memorial Day, you can visit the ships docked in Red Hook this weekend, maybe snag yourself a sailor at a local bar too, since it’s Fleet Week. Remember Samantha’s sailor in Sex In The City? First Photos. Second photo: the real Sergeant Winters, Richard Winters. Read his obituary here. Another soldier Buck Compton from Band of Brothers here.
