With Memorial Day approaching, VetFriends.com -- the largest Web site for reuniting U.S. military veterans -- has created an online Memorial Day Forum reaching out to U.S. veterans and anyone else interested in contributing their thoughts and insights in regards to our U.S. military personnel and Memorial Day. Personal stories, sentiments and words of thanks can be found online in a Memorial Day collection throughout May and the summer at http://www.vetfriends.com/memorial_day_forum/. VetFriends.com invites members of the media to visit the forum and utilize the quotes in their Memorial Day news stories promoting and honoring the significance of Memorial Day.
Here are a few quotes from the VetFriends.com Memorial Day forum:
"Memorial Day is a day to honor all the men and women of the U.S. Armed Forces, that served this great nation to keep this country free. All of the fallen comrades, veterans and those who still serve this nation need to be commended not only on Memorial Day but every day of the year." -U.S. veteran T. Eisenhour
"Whenever I smell the fragrance of lilacs, I think of Memorial Day. It was called Decoration Day when I was in the third grade and we laid lilacs on the graves of veterans. Today, I wear my outdated uniform and march with any veteran groups participating in local parades. God Bless those who are willing to 'Lay down their life for their fellow man.'" -U.S. veteran T. Cromak
"This Day is always special, as a Firefighter we go out and decorate the graves of the Brothers who have passed away. Being a U.S. Military veteran, I put American Flags alongside the Fire Company flags for the men who served our country. Thanks to all the families of all the vets. They are all my heroes." -U.S. veteran M. Ercole
