Memorial Day—Who do you Remember?

On a day set aside to remember the sacrifice of veterans and the fact that our country would not exist without them, what do you remember about the people who served in the armed forces?

I started this site recognizing that my father, a former World War Two Marine, did not have a memorial in his honor or one place his children and grandchildren and great-grandchildren can go to learn about him.

All they have is a couple of battered photographs and memories spun by his children. Such a shame; he and my mother were heroes to me and to most they came into contact with.

This site is predicated on making money so it’s not honorable to bring that up here. Please go to “Your Story Free” on the front of this site and take the time to interview those who sacrificed so much for our freedoms. Record those interviews using WorpPress.Com. Create a living legacy for those who will come after him or her.

My wife’s father fought at the Battle of the Bulge during the Second World War; he was taken prisoner and existed in the harshest of conditions until liberated. Guess how many in my wife’s family know about his sacrifice? Few to none.

So it doesn’t matter if they served in World War Two (see example interviews on this site) or current conflicts. Take some time and record their stories. Open a free account on WordPress.Com.

You will be doing something truly significant for them, for you and for your country.

Best, Len.
