Happy Memorial Day from The Greedy Pinstripes


What is Memorial Day? Memorial Day to some means the day off paid, barbecues and hang outs with friends but to others it means so much more. To some it means the one day that their families and their serviceman and women get the recognition and respect that they so much deserve. This Memorial Day hits home for me especially because one of my very best friends has recently joined the Navy. This is his first Memorial Day and thankfully he got to come home, announce that his new wife is pregnant and surprise his family and friends with a visit. It won't always be like this and I am grateful that it was this year.

So shake a veteran's hand and thank them for everything that they and their family do. Unless you've lived through it you will never truly understand. So a big thank you to the veterans that are reading this and their families and a very big thank you to our very own patrick (always with a little p) Walsh and Ken Reed (and anyone else that frequents the site that I was unaware served or that slipped my mind. I appreciate you, have the utmost respect for you and love you all.

Enjoy the day but just remember why we have it. Thank you.
