I was raised a navy brat and even with my parents memorial day was not a big deal as far as it's "real meaning". We lived in many different areas and i dont ever remember anyone making much out of it other than family bbqs.
In my family it really isnt something we talk about to our teens. Nothing we really make a big deal of. Hub's father is a vet, my dad was 21 yrs military, and all my uncles and hubs uncles served... but what ever.
We are thankful EVERY day for ALL those who have come before us and for all those who have helped make our lives what they are. But does it mean less because we do not own a flag or go put flowers on a grave??????
We can not be the only ones.

That's the beauty about the country we live in- Freedom to choose to celebrate or not celebrate. Enjoy the day how you see fit. It's what all those wonderfully brave vets fought for in the first place. :)
