Thanks for this reminder, Chief.  I hope everyone will display the Colors today and say a prayer for those in uniform.

FOR ANYBODY WHO DID NOT GET TO SEE IT ....HERE IS THE 2019 MEMORIAL DAY CONCERT..... This is the 30th Annual Concert held at the Whitehouse....i have watched them since the start in 1989 & they always are great...the Singing & the Bands & the Historical videos are great....from year to year some new stories of Veterans are brought forth....it is a greatly deserved Annual Tribute to our Veterans... something that should also be focused on are several messages thru the broadcast brought out by RET General Colin Powell & later a Veteran who lost both legs in Afganastan whose Twin Brother took his own Life related to "survivors guilt"....the Hosts Joe Mantegna & Mary McCormack reiterated more than once during the broadcast about looking out for others & pointing a Veteran in the right direction if you feel they are "getting lost" ....as rousing as the performances were in this broadcast ...looking out for another should be a "take away".....while this broadcast is basically geared to Military Veterans we in the FDNY thru the years have also had a number of sad issues regarding suicide....WATCH YOUR BROTHER OR SISTER...... if anyone missed the broadcast here it is....(it starts slowly about the 2:14 mark) ...
