Memorial Day 2012

By Rob Baer | May 28th, 2012 | Categories: memorial day, Warhammer 40k

Today across the US, we celebrate memorial day to help remember all the servicemen and women of the armed forces who fought for us and made the ultimate sacrifice.

I wasn’t posting every day last year, and May kinda kicked my butt a little bit regardless. So this time around here at Spikey Bits, were doing things right today.

From Wiki:
Memorial Day is a federal holiday observed annually in the United States on the last Monday of May.[1] Memorial Day is a day of remembering the men and women who died while serving in the United States Armed Forces.[2] Formerly known as Decoration Day, it originated after the American Civil War to commemorate the Union soldiers who died in the Civil War. By the 20th century Memorial Day had been extended to honor all Americans who have died in all wars. It typically marks the start of the summer vacation season, while Labor Day marks its end.

So whether your working or taking time off today, make sure to reflect on what this day is about.

I borrowed this Space Marine Iwo Jima pic from Brass Scorpion to celebrate the day. -MBG
