Memorial Day

Taken 29 May 2010 at the Pensacola NAS museum. Part of the display sponsored by the Crusader Association.

Just a week prior Neil Armstrong and Gene Cernan were there to mark Armstrong's induction to their wall of honor. Many forget that Neil was a young naval aviator who flew combat missions during the Korean War before he became an astronaut and walked on the Moon.

This weekend lets remember all the sacrifices past generations have endured. And let us remember the sacrifices the current generation are bearing to ensure the rest of us enjoy a long peaceful weekend. As the picture states "Sheath me not without honor. Draw me not without reason."
