Thread: Happy Memorial day week end :)

    Default Happy Memorial day week end :)

    hey I hope every one is having a good long week end. I have not been on this forum for a long time but I think I will have more time and be able to come here more often. I know it may not matter to any one here but I used to be on these forums all the time and helping other virtual pilots. but I got really busy and life was getting in the way and I was busy with FSX as well. hopefully I can come back like I used to before.

    Welcome to the forum.

    Needless to say, this is much more than just a "long weekend" to me, and, I'm sure, the other military members here.
    It's a great chance to stop for a while, and remember our long, or not so long, lost brothers and sisters. Maybe even say a silent farewell to those we have personally lost.
    I know I do that, myself.

    Besides that though, it's a real nice way for the government to wish me a happy birthday

    Have a great one, all!

    Had a thought...then there was the smell of something burning, and sparks, and then a big fire, and then the lights went out! I guess I better not do that again!

    My father was in the U.S. Navy in WW II for the last two years of the War - he was on a troop transport ship, and then on a tender ship. He was most fortunate as his ships never encountered the enemy. And he got to see the world of that time: From India to Rio in Brazil, and many other places... His ship was actually bound for Pearl Harbor out of San Diego when the War ended, and they turned the ship around to go home. I was fortunate too, as I was born a year later...

    All here should remember this special Day: "They died to make us free".

    I wish people would refrain or at least think for a miniute and not say happy memorial day. There's nothing "happy" about it.
