    As we approach the Holiday Weekend I wanted to take a minute to Thank any veterans or active service members on the forum. I know Memorial Day is to remember those that we've lost in defense of our freedom, but still think it is worth acknowledging anyone who has served. Both my grandfathers served in World War II (one in Europe, one in the Pacific) and both were a big influence on me growing up.

    Without the good folks who have, do, or will serve in our armed forces we might not be able to enjoy our cookouts, spend time with family, or play our pinball -- so Thank You. A lot of the younger generation may not be as familiar with the meaning behind the holiday; if you can take a few seconds this weekend to appreciate what some have sacrificed.

    I served 4 1/2 yrs 2005 to 2010 with almost 3 yrs deployed. I thank the folks who thank me and my fellow service members. But my true hero's are the ones who gave their life for there country and to bring the freedoms we have to others who do not! We as a country should never forget the cost of signing that dotted line and serving our country!
    Pinball on!

    Thank you to all have served and sacrificed. You are appreciated so much.

    We went to place flowers at a couple different cemeteries and it is really an honor to walk amount the graves of so many vets and remember even the ones we never met. They are not forgotten on this day.

    I hope my children's generation appreciate the service of veterans before us.

    Like I do.

    I have thirty years or so left to make sure no one forgets.

    A day to honor those who made the ultimate sacrifice for us. Memorial day has origins possibly pre Civil War. Definitely post Civil War when flowers were laid on the graves of Confederate and Union soldiers who died in that terrible war. A tradition which became Decoration Day. Became Memorial Day, now a federal holiday, and now always on the last Monday in May.

    Thank you will never seem enough for the men and women who died in the service of their country. Remember them today.
