Memorial Day

     As a kid Memorial Day was just a fun day off of school. I didn't really think much about what it stood for. Now that the gulf war and 9/11 have happened I have more of a reverence for those who have served our country.
     This week in New York was fleet week which is the week where navy boats dock by the intrepid and various other spots in NYC. I did not manage to get to the intrepid this Memorial Day, but I did go to Staten Island to view the USS Cole and  the USS McFaul. It was quite interesting. Sailors gave tours of the boats.  It gives you respect for anyone in the military . They go through so much to keep this country safe.
