    So Memorial Day is coming up.
    I know lots people have plans and cookouts.
    I also believe some people forget the real reason.
    As a Gold Star family member I take it very seriously as a reminder to what we have and the people that gave their lives for our freedoms.
    Last year I found this family that does great things for our military members and this year I'll have this flag on my Jeep below the stars and stripes, got it last year and have been waiting.
    I wanted to send a thankyou to all the service members here and put this out there.
    Have a great Memorial Day!

                May we all remember why we have cookouts and camping also the ribs with beer. We should be giving thanks to the men and women that gave the ultimate price so we can have that freedom. We celebrate it on one day of the year which I. Would like to press on everyone it should be everyday you give thanks to our heroes. To the ones who have survived I'm very grateful to you all. To the families who lost their own I pray for the memories and thank you for my freedom.

                    I've said it before... I'll say it again. Of all our important holidays, Memorial Day is THE MOST IMPORTANT. For without it, we wouldn't be celebrating any others.

                      My family had 5 males serve. My father in WWII - 3 brothers in Vietnam and one in the Philippines. while we pray for all of them we pray a bit more for the one that didn’t come home. May God rest his eternal soul.

                          I have a MBF hanging in my shop and it reminds me of my dad every time I walk into it. I found this particular flag at an estate sale and thought how sad that none of the family wanted it and let it go in a sale like this. I've had a few guys say I should put it up on a flag pole but cotton flags don't last long like that. It's been in the shop for about 10 years now and some of y'all have seen pics of it before.....
