1. Do you celebrate Cinco de Mayo?

2. Are you having a party or going to one for Memorial Day?

3. Did you go on a honeymoon?

4. What do you do to de-stress from a long day?

She mentioned them with the series of flyovers of historic aircraft and missing man formation, you did not.  That's why I asked.

Same thing that they have done at the ones I have gone to. I think their routine is probably the same all across the country.

I never doubted that you would be able to find a plethora of tacky ideas and events that dishonor the memories of vets who served and died.  I mean, seriously, it's like your national anthem.

No interest in party etiquette borwithyou? Darn, that's too bad. You know it doesn't take a book to know you don't judge others styles as tacky just b/c you wouldn't do it.

.  I sure the people who want to have parties to celebrate dead soldiers, or whatever it is that one celebrates at a "Memorial Day Party," couldn't care less about my opinion of their carrying on, nor do I care a fig about theirs.

Yeah, I think it is usually about 250,000 people. We have opted at times to go to a private side beach or go to the airport they leave out of as you can meet the pilots there and get their autographs. The kids like that. We used to go to lunch at the restaurant next store and watch the planes out the window. It was cool but they closed the place so I miss that. I also get to see them come over my house from the other airport they go out of closer to my house. We have been seeing running out a work to see them when we hear them fly over to watch them land and go back up :)

    Wow, really? Smh. As you can see, people DO have memorial day parties and not something unheard of nor done to disrepect fallen soldiers. Again, the party I have gone to and will go to have a few veterans and one that works with veterans everyday. Your statement is just so naive and makes you sound like you live under a rock.

    .  I am not quite sure why you keep bringing up Vererans at your parties to celebrate dead soldiers.  Memorial Day is about the ones who didn't make it back.  Veterana' Day is for the ones who did.
