In Memory of...

A Memorial Day Tribute

I was not particularly familiar with the Battle of Monte Cassino when I spotted the buildings high on the mountaintop as our bus rolled into the parking lot of a well-tended cemetery. Yet fellow travelers on our bus were pulling out handkerchiefs and wiping their eyes even before the bus braked to a stop. Read about our visit to a Monte Cassino cemetery (here).



  1. its sad...i dont know that i ever heard of this battle...
    def this should be a day of thanks to those that gave all...
    another sad thing is our town did not even have a parade

  2. Memorial Day also reminds me of just how many (including around the world) have lost their lives to not just worthy wars, but the causes of stupid rulers.
