A special salute to:

My grandmother's brother, Cedric Hilliker, who died in The Death March of Bataan, Philippines in 1942 (World War II).

My mother's father, Lieutenant Bernard R. Coyle, bomber pilot in the Black Cat squadron, pacific theater (World War II).

My father's brother, Sergeant Charles Emerson (Viet Nam).
(Retired)

Yeah, he is currently on his second tour in Iraq. His term in the military was supposed to have ended, but because of the stupid stop-loss program, his term got extended for an extra year. :angered:

Thank-you, from me too! It's harder for us with David's second tour. We didn't know how dangerous the location of his camp was under he returned home and his buddies told their war stories to his wife. Your prayers are very much appreciated. :hug:

I just wanted to do my part on Memorial Day, and I figured the best way of doing that, was capturing a shot of some soliers' graves, so that they would be remembered.
