Happy Memorial Day 2011

Thank you to all those who have served our Country to promote our freedom.  According to the VA, Memorial Day, which is observed on the last Monday of May, commemorates the men and women who died while in the military service.  In observance of the holiday, many people visit cemeteries and memorials, and volunteers often place American flags on each grave site at national cemeteries.  A national moment of remembrance takes place at 3:00 p.m. local time. Some Carnivals/Links Some of my posts were either linked to or featured in carnivals My post about the Misunderstanding that a lot of Investors make [...]
