Personal Reflections: Memorial Day
Memorial Day is on Monday, May 31, 2021. The U.S. federal holiday is observed to honor the men and women who have died while serving in the military. I am proud to say we at Comforcare support the military and their families for the sacrifices they make to keep us free and safe. At Comforcare we serve many veterans.
For me Memorial Day brings back memories of my dad who served in World War 2. He was an active duty army veteran, a para-trooper. I remember my dad always flying an American flag outside of our house. I spent many years sitting next to my dad watching war/military movies. He was so proud to serve. When my dad retired he volunteered at the VA hospital in Cleveland, Ohio helping veterans. My dad died in 2015 and the American flag was draped over his coffin during his funeral service. After the burial I remember the flag was folded into a neat triangle and then presented to my brother for safe keeping.
Thanks for serving dad. Thank you to all the veterans who served our country. You are not forgotten.
