Memorial Day is more than a day off from work to me. I am not a veteran. However my dad was an Army medic in the Pacific in WWII and then re-upped for Korea in the same capacity. He survived but it took a toll on him. These were the pre-PTSD days but I am sure he suffered from it. He kept it at bay but it finally contributed to his death when I was two. Just my personal story. However, every veteran has his/her own story that may be very personal. I would like to say thank you to all veterans and the families and friends who supported them. An excellent day to honor the past, help for the present and hope for the future.
