Now it wouldn't be Memorial Day Weekend in DC without Rolling Thunder. It started out as way to keep MIA/POW from Vietnam in mind, but it has since morphed into a tribute to all that served and gave all.
There is a group that I wanted to pay tribute to this weekend as well. The fallen of 9/11. Virtually none of them thought they were going off to war that day, but they did, and not all made it home.
I knew someone killed that day, we only knew each other socially, but I still think of her and saw her name today.
