Moment of Remembrance

Memorial day is a Federal U.S. holiday what has been set aside as a day of remembrance for the men and women who have died in our Armed Forces.

In 2000 the National Moment of Remembrance was passed. We hope you will voluntarily, at 3 PM, stop for a moment of remembrance and respect for the fallen who served us or to listen to "Taps".

This year we would like to widen our tribute post to include those who served and survived but returned home with PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) or TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury).

We have great respect for our military men and women, past and present.  The two men in this video have bad memories but a positive attitude.  The song on PTSD is "A Soldier's Memoir" by Joe Bachman.

  8. Even when a soldier does not lose his/her life, it does not mean they return unscathed. We must always remember that.
