im sure someone has asked this question before, so ill post this question
again. With all due respect, that the memorial is closed on the three days new years day and thanksgiving and christmas. I was just wondering if the families who lost loved ones would like to spend any one of those three holidays at the
memorial site with them. As far as i know no one wants to be alone on those days.
We know these brave men are never really alone at, the grave site they all have each other to keep company in a spiritual way and while their remains may be below we know they are in a far far better place. So why not stay open 24/7
I am positively sure our armed forces would consider it an honor to stand watch on any of those days as it has remained an honor to stand watch the 362 days of the year, these many years past. Just a thought that came to me. i spent some holidays alone while serving in the armed forces.
