Memorial Day - is a US federal holiday wherein the men and women who died while serving in the United States Armed Forces are remembered. The holiday, which is celebrated every year on the final Monday of May, was formerly known as Decoration Day and originated after the American Civil War to commemorate the Union and Confederate soldiers who died in the Civil War. By the 20th century, Memorial Day had been extended to honor all Americans who have died while in the military service.
(???) Will Obama honor the dead soldiers same as he has the wounded ones that have returned from "Government" sponsored wars (???)
Sorry Spirit,'i' just had to get my "DIG" in!
That's OK!

Ahhhh yes, Memorial Day. A day where everyone says, "thank you fallen veterans". Then they proceed to get blindly drunk. 30 seconds of honor, 3 days of partying. The fallen would probably rather just have you drink till you puke and leave them out of it. Memorial and Veterans Day have become nothing more than an excuse for Americans to work less and drink more.

May YOU ALL Enjoy a Safe and Peaceful Memorial Day as you remember those ...

My Stepfather's name is Louis and he is 91 years old. He is an incredible
man who was fortunate enough to have returned from war(s).. NAVY.
He is an incredible Blessing to me and all he is surrounded by .. only he's
not well known in this tiny community by name or accomplishment as he is
a true blue heart that knows the meaning of Brave and Humble Servant.

I Wish you ALL Peace while You REMEMBER those that made the Freedom we know and enjoy possible. I'd also like to THANK each and every Man and Woman that Serve or have Serve in 'Our' armed forces and I Pray that YOU know WE do Appreciate it All and I HOPE You are not suffering still from what You may have gone through or may still BE enduring.

Be SAFE and Arrive Home Alive .. the grills are fired up and ready to serve up all the festive treats .. A Real Time for SHAREVIVAL among family and Friends all Across OUR UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.



PEACE :))

And NASCAR Racing, also use suntan lotion and don't get sucked under by an under tow! Also, drink Gatorade when feeling light headed, as you are heading for dehydration!

Presidential Proclamation -- Prayer for Peace, Memorial Day, 2014

PRAYER FOR PEACE, MEMORIAL DAY, 2014

-------

BY THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

A PROCLAMATION

Constant in the American narrative is the story of men and women who loved our country so deeply they were willing to give their all to keep it safe and free. When a revolution needed to be won and our Union needed to be preserved, brave patriots stepped forward. When our harbor was bombed and our country was attacked on a clear September morning, courageous warriors raised their hands and said, "send me." On the last Monday of each May, our Nation comes together to honor the selfless heroes who have defended the land we love and in so doing gave their last full measure of devotion.

Today, we pause to remember our fallen troops, to mourn their loss, and to pray for their loved ones. Though our hearts ache, we find a measure of solace in knowing their legacy lives on in the families our heroes left behind -- the proud parents who instilled in their sons and daughters the values that led them to serve; the remarkable spouses who gave our Nation the person they cherished most in the world; and the beautiful children who will grow up with the knowledge that their mother or father embodied the true meaning of patriotism. To those we lost, we owe a profound debt that can never be fully repaid. But we can honor the fallen by caring for their loved ones and keeping faith with our veterans and their fellow brothers and sisters in arms.

The security that lets us live in peace, the prosperity that allows us to pursue our dreams, the freedom that we cherish -- these were earned by the blood and the sacrifices of patriots who went before. This Memorial Day, as we near the end of more than a decade of war, let us never forget their service and always be worthy of the sacrifices made in our name. And today and every day, let us pray for and hold close the families of the fallen.

NOW, THEREFORE, I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the United States of America, do hereby proclaim Memorial Day, May 26, 2014, as a day of prayer for permanent peace, and I designate the hour beginning in each locality at 11:00 a.m. of that day as a time to unite in prayer. I also ask all Americans to observe the National Moment of Remembrance beginning at 3:00 p.m. local time on Memorial Day.

I request the Governors of the United States and the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, officials of the other territories subject to the jurisdiction of the United States, and appropriate officials of all units of government, to direct that the flag be flown at half-staff until noon on this Memorial Day on all buildings, grounds, and naval vessels throughout the United States and in all areas under its jurisdiction and control. I also request the people of the United States to display the flag at half-staff from their homes for the customary forenoon period.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this twenty-third day of May, in the year of our Lord two thousand fourteen, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and thirty-eighth.

BARACK OBAMA

Peace..

Always, Oz

Fish are important in a healthy diet. They are a lean, low-calorie source of protein. However, some fish may contain methylmercury or other harmful chemicals at sufficiently high levels to be a concern.

Federal, state and local governments issue fish consumption advisories when fish are unsafe to eat. The advisories may suggest that people avoid eating certain kinds or certain amounts of fish. Some advisories apply to specific water types (like specific lakes). Some may focus on groups of particularly sensitive people (e.g., women of childbearing age). Some advisories include notices of "no restriction" to tell us that certain fish are safe to eat. As states increase the waters they monitor for contaminated fish, both the number of advisories and the waters where it is safe to eat fish are increasing.

The degree of exposure to mercury is derived from both the amount and the type of fish eaten. The key factor to an individual's health is related to the amount and type of fish the individual consumes.

Thanks for honoring the veterans. The daughter and I helped replace a few flags on some our local gone but not forgotten. There were a few from the Civil War.

Should probably mention they fought for the north, before a fussy liberal steps in and comments.
