The real reason for Memorial Day

Another Memorial Day Observance is upon us...with nice weather happening in the midwest, people are barbecuing and having family gatherings...but the main purpose of Memorial Day is to honor those who have given their life in serving our country...

We will see pictures of President Obama at Arlington National Cemetery...however, very few see photos of American cemeteries abroad in which thousands of Americans are buried...their bodies never came back to American soil...below are just a few snippets of those cemeteries...

God Bless America...

Cambridge, England - 3,812 of our military dead

Meuse-Argonne - 14,246 of our military dead

The American Cemetery at Ardennes, Belgium - 5,329 of our military dead

Luxembourg - 5,076 of our military dead
