Charles here,

It was my turn this year to write a little piece on Memorial Day. And all I could think of was my veteran friend, and what he told me about the war in Afghanistan. We lost 2531 souls in that war alone. Some were his friends.  

There’s nothing one can say to take away the pain of losing someone dear. All we can do in days like this is to come together to honor and remember our men and women who answered America’s call to service and paid the ultimate price.

If you have friends who lost someone, I encourage you to give them a call. Because Memorial Day is the time for Americans as one body to stand up and say, “Thank you. We remember you.”

Each year on Memorial Day a national moment of remembrance takes place at 3:00 p.m. local time.

For those of you who can’t make it, or just don’t remember the historical significance of this day, enjoy this one minute guide to Memorial Day.

God Bless,

Charles

I write for Final Prepper and The Prepper's Daily, covering topics affecting our everyday life. I retired from working for the government because I think I can help more here, at home, than abroad. Happily married and a proud father, I am dedicated to keep them safe. I strongly believe preppers are just common sense people being aware they should be able to handle everyday problems they might face, by themselves, without counting on anyone's help. And after years of being a father, I think preppers want to reach self-sufficiency not because they don't like other people, or don't trust them. It's just that they love their families more. And as I see it, talking from my experience only, and not from a book I read, prepping is an act and proof of love.
