    Good form my friend, you never let them down. Just got back from posting flags at the cemetary for all our veterans, and a small VFW ceremony. Gorgeous day outside, and I will never forget those who sacrificed all, so we could enjoy it.

    Happy Memorial Day and Cheers to you and yours!

      Yep, RT, I too was at my hometown’s Memorial Day ceremony on Sunday in my central Illinois hometown. We have veterans buried in the area cemeteries that date to the Black Hawk War of 1832.

    Ron, thanks for posting this list. Not that it matters, but I only found two casulties from 2010. Is this list up to date, as far as you know?
