In Case We Thought It Was National BBQ Day…

The photo, taken by New York Times's Todd Heisler while he was a staff photographer at Rocky Mountain News in 2005. The night before the burial of her husband's body, Katherine Cathey refused to leave the casket, asking to sleep next to his body for the last time. The Marines made a bed for her.

  2. My dad who served the Pacific at 17, yes he lied about age, hated when people would say “happy Memorial Day”. My dad said people should say have a safe day and do something in memory of those who passed on and this is the reason you have the life you have!! I do this. Thanks for this blog
