    The older I get, the more I understand about the United States' Memorial Day and I ask that ALL TOGGERS take another look at why there is a Memorial Day. Take in a parade, visit a cemetery, listen to a speech, take in a Memorial Day presentation, and thank God for your freedom.

    Don't thank God, but those that fought for it. :)

    We've just had ANZAC Day last month, which is our main time to reflect on the sacrifices made, and freedom won by servicemen and women. We also commemorate Remebrance Day (11th November), but to a much lesser extent.
