Thank You and Happy Memorial Day

Pool's Open!

It's Memorial Day, and every one at Another Delco Guy is poolside, enjoying a beautiful late spring day in the Delaware Valley.

The only work being done here today is by the pool filter and the lawn sprinklers. We're happy to have the day off to spend as we wish and enjoy the company of family and friends. It's the day the kicks off the summer season and we can't wait for all of the great days to come.

Still we are mindful of the reason for the holiday and as is tradition here at Another Delco Guy, we'd like to take a moment to thank all those who have served and fallen so that we might live in peace and freedom, safe and happy in the greatest nation in history.

From Jonas Parker at Lexington to Captain Andrew Ivan, Jr., whose POW-MIA bracelet I wore until it was clear he was not coming home from VietNam to Maj. Ronald W. Culver, Jr. who fell last week in Numaniyah, we thank you all for your service and your sacrifice.

For the families of all those who have fallen and for those who have served and continue to serve this great nation, we thank you for all that you do for us.

Happy Memorial Day!

Truly poignant as usual. I look forward to all of your posts, but your respectfulnational holidays I enjoy the most. There don't seem to be quite as many from our generation take pause and truly appeciate the reason for these days of remembrance. Thank you

How nice to link our tradition of celebration to our tradition of sacrifice. I, too, am eternally grateful. Thanks for the bittersweet post. And GO DELCO! (We were at the pool too).
