Memorial Day, To Our Veterans!!!!!!

So, like every year I usually get together with my group to celebrate this weekend, but unlike any year previous to this I will be taking my first real vacation down to disneyland, knotsberry farm, sea world, and any other place that my wife and I decide to visit. While I am very excited about it, I also feel sad that I won't be celebrating this weekend with my close friends (well those close) to whom I have served with. I just want to take this opportunity to lift a glass and honor those who have served, or are serving our military right now. Take care, be safe and be sure to at the end of the day light up a good cigar.

    Enjoy your vacation man. My family marked the day by visiting the V.A. Cememtary with my Grandmother to put flowers on my Grandfather's grave, he passed in 2006 from a heart failure. During WWII he was a POW and recieved the Purple Heart, and loved telling me and my cousins stories at Thanksgiving. When I first started smoking cigars my mom would always complain that I smelled like grandpa's house, because he ALWAYS had a stoagie on him, but I always took it as more of a compliment.

    There's been two dedications in my area for veterans that I know of in the last few months. A local high school even made one, mainly because one of the teachers was KIA in Iraq. It's a nice little memorial.
