Memorial Day

Aviator C
As you know, the Memorial Day Weekend traditionally marks the beginning of summer, and we have a lot of fun and relaxation on this weekend.  The SWA Blog Team hopes each of you has a great summer, and we will be taking Monday off--look for new posts on Tuesday.  (We will continue to moderate comments all weekend.)  However, during your upcoming celebrations, stop and think about the true meaning of the day, which is to honor those who in uniform who have given what Lincoln called "the last full measure of devotion."  It first began in 1868, when flowers were placed on the graves of Union and Confederate graves at Arlington Cemetary. No doubt, you know someone in uniform who is serving in harm's way.  For us, that includes our Coworkers, Francisco and his shipmates, relatives, and friends.  We thank them, and we wish for their safe return.  We would LUV to hear your Memorial Day memory or thought.
