memorial day, alzheimers national plan


memorial day is monday may 28th
its the day to remember those who died while
serving in the military and fighting the wars of
the past

stop on monday for a few minutes and ponder
what memorial day really means besides a
three day weekend

thanks to all the veterans who died serving their
country and
thanks to all veterans who have served their

thanks to mack my nephew for serving in afghanistan
am glad he is safe back in the states

make memorial day a day to make a memory of
those who served

and be safe

the government passed a alzheimers national plan this month
its one of the few things that received bipartisan support in congress
(too bad they cant agree on other things that need to get done)

the bill provides funding of $156 million to advance this alzheimers
national project

its a national plan to attack alzheimers like the ones that were
launched against cancer and aids

we are now heading in the right direction
hopefully a cure will come soon
the goal is 2025

here is the link to the national plan to address alzheimers

remember there are survivors of aids and cancer
there are no alzheimers survivors
maybe we can change this

  1. Thank you to my dad. He gave our country 20 years. He was an amazing man. I couldn't be prouder of him. While putting up my flag today, I didn't think of the time I served or the time my husband served but of my dad. Funny, when he was alive, I never thought to tell him how grateful I was for his sacrifice. But I have no doubt that he is in heaven and he feels my love and gratitude. Thank you daddy!
