Memorial Day – We Won’t Forget

Today we say ‘thanks.’ It’s not just another day off (partially because I have to work), but it’s a time to remember all of the sacrifice made by generations of people and families protecting who we are as Americans. We put our political differences and opinions aside, and honor our fallen soldiers. I found a really interesting and poignant plug-in for Google Earth…you can find it here. The picture below is a map of the fallen soldiers from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. You can see photos of the soldiers, learn about how they died, visit memorial websites, and explore the places they called home as well as the places where they died. It’s really worth some of your time…
