The first thing we're gonna do is we're gonna acknowledge that this guy is awesome.  I mean he shoots Theo Tonin;  fakes his own death in a spectacular fashion;  pushes a guy out of an airplane while he's flyin' it;  parachutes into Harlan County with enough coke and cash to jumpstart the economy of a small country;  then he has the balls to get a job in law enforcement - not once but two times;  he spends a couple days ridin' around with you - while you're lookin' for him;  and now he's run off with a hooker that's half his age.  That's some badass shit.

Sorry didn't mean to fuck up the thread. I was specifically talking about people who don't understand what the day means and post pictures of their still alive relatives and friends who served and say "Thanks for serving". Do that every other day of the year and I'm totally for it. But the word memorial to me signifies someone has died. Memorial day is for those who have died.  Whether they died in active service or not doesn't really matter as much.

These aren't controversial statements. I saw a lot of combat veterans posting similar sentiments  on facebook yesterday.

War Memorial Stadium is among the myriad number of monuments across the country - stadiums, hospitals, parks, etc dedicated to those who died serving their country.  There are hundreds.

I work at a hospital with "Memorial" in the title.  Ironically I think everyone has forgotten where the name came from.

Never forget those who made the ultimate sacrifice.

You're only young once, but you can be immature until you croak.

I teared up when I first read that story.  How he left this world.....it was just perfect really.  Once he saw his old plane again, he had to have been at peace.
