Memorial Day Weekend
Saturday, May 23, 2009
A few days ago i meet another girl while walking and have now made a friend to go exercise with and its made it alot more pleasant and its great to meet new people. Last night during our walk she invited me to go with her this morning to put flags on graves of those who have served in the US Military. I didn't agree to anything last night but I said that if I was awake and up for it I would call her and i'd go.
Well I woke up at 8am and decided i would go so i got ready and called and so around 9 she picked me up. We got to the cementary and meet up with the group she was helping. Got a list of graves that needed marked telling us the names and lot location. And a very poor map of the lots. We then spent the next three hours searching for all these graves.
We also got a portion of the list containing alot of names that had not been located the previous year. It was an enjoyable experience not really fun but i definately enjoyed it.
I'd like to say
to anyone who has servered or is serving in the military for defending my freedom and that of others.
