How did you spend your Memorial Day? The beginning of ours was not good at all. We were called at 3am by a fellow firefighter who made a call to my father in law’s house. He was taken by ambulance to the hospital. He will be there for a few days while they run some tests. While my husband rested from his early morning trip to the hospital, my son and I went to our Texas Panhandle War Memorial to observe those that died for our country. It is a really nice memorial. I didn’t realize you can purchase plaques honoring veterans. We are going to buy one in honor of my husband’s uncle. He died from leukemia a couple of years ago and he served in WWII. I think it will make my husband’s aunt so happy when we show it to her. I can’t wait! Here are some photos of the memorial.
This is the are where the plaques that people can buy are displayed.
I am proud that my city has such a place to honor our veterans. Thank you to all who served and especially to those that gave their life.
