Never really thought about it much before but appreciated the day off. That's really too bad but I guess unless you have lost someone in war (or lived in a war zone), it's not as real to you. Anyway, both of my grandfathers were in the military and both are gone now.
So I have decided that today I am thinking of them. Whether the war is right or wrong, the commitment to country is honorable. Miss my grandpas. And I am going to enjoy the day off in their honor.
