I celebrate Memorial Day with sadness because a good friend of mine who was born on the same little town in Portugal as I was did not make back from Vietnam.
We were friends in High School and not too long after that we both served in Vietnam.
I made it back and he did not. I have visited ( The Wall ) in DC a couple of times and saw my friends name. But of course I always remember him on Memorial Day.

Manuel , sorry about your friend and LF about your cousin & friends.
It seems the older I get the more I'm annoyed that so many people have forgotten the true meaning of the different holidays and what they stand for.
I give thanks to all who served to give me the freedoms I have.

A few pictures from my ride this weekend to honor my fallen comrades, especially my friend, Bill, who was killed while we were in a firefight in Cambodia. He may be gone, but he will never be forgotten!
