    Several years ago, a prominent competitor of Home Depot had a commercial on the radio that went something like, "Memorial Day is a day to do things you enjoy doing and fixing things around the home." I wasn't the only one that was upsat at that. And I heard it only once, so somebody must have sent them a message.

    Most Americans don't even know the difference between Memorial Day and Veteran's Day. Our ignorance is abysmal.

    I'm always still in trouble again

    At each of those Sunday (related) Services, I make sure to draw the distinction.

    (And I still have congregants who remember when *it was "Decoration Day")

    I will spend it remembering. Some of the boys in this picture with me never made home, or didn't make it home whole.

    And, let's not forget -- "whole" doesn't only refer to physically. One of my buddies came back from Viet Nam "whole physically", but he was never the same, and ended up taking his own life.

    And most Americans don't know the name of that holiday that occurs the day after the third of July.
