Lest We Forget

We attended a solemn ceremony at our town for memorial day. It was a very nice celebration dedicated to those forefathers who died in wars serving and defending the land of the free, the United States of America.

One of my Uncle died in Germany, he was drafted in the military same time as my Dad but they were assigned to different places. My Dad went to the Philippines while my Uncle Paul was sent in Germany. He died there and my grandmother did not see him again, his remains was buried there. I would like to go there and visit where he was laid to rest.
It is sad that most of the young generations nowadays does not recognized those sacrifices that they have made for us.
Please do not forget the bravery they did in order to give us the freedom that we are enjoying now.

So sad about your uncle--there's no replacing what is lost in wartime. I agree we need to remember the sacrifice. Great photos of the day, by the way.
