A Press Photo For Memorial Day
Happy Memorial Day everyone. I hope that again as yesterday that you are not only enjoying the day off from work, but are able to take the time to remember the sacrifices by the members of our armed services who are no longer with us today. Remember what they have given us.
And while I know that this is not a Memorial Day photo, it dates from April 6, 1942 on an Army Day parade in Chicago. Army Day was part of annual celebrations that marked the contributions by each of the armed service branches until they were rolled into one Armed Forces Day that also takes place in May. The jeeps obviously took their honored place in amongst the armored personnel carriers, M37 power wagons and heavy trucks.
