Memorial Day 2012 At Alpine Village

Nothing Else Counts In This World!   

Time To Visit With Dear Friends... 5/28/2012

Remember - The story of America's quest for freedom is inscribed on her history in the blood of her patriots.  ~Randy Vader

Quotation To Remember: I have never been able to think of the day as one of mourning; I have never quite been able to feel that half-masted flags were appropriate on Decoration Day.  I have rather felt that the flag should be at the peak, because those whose dying we commemorate rejoiced in seeing it where their valor placed it.  We honor them in a joyous, thankful, triumphant commemoration of what they did.  ~Benjamin Harrison
