    Prior to our Federal Gov't. making changes to the original holiday date so that folks could have an extra day off and enjoy a "long weekend" (which is not what this day is all about in the first place) the original Memorial Day was actually May 30TH. Not only is this day "forever" in my mind for the remembrance of those that gave the ultimate sacrifice in the defense of our country but this particular day will "always" be within me as it also is my birthday. I would also like for you to take yet another day to remember those that have fallen and fly your flag high as I shall also be doing on this day. Memorial Day May 30TH

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY GUNNER---TO YOU MARINE.
    BIRTHDAYS KINDA COME AND GO
    THEY CHANGE WITH EVERY YEAR;
    SOME YEARS YOU GET BIRTHDAY CAKE
    AND SOME YEARS, BEANS WITH BEER.

    THERE'S YEARS THAT YOU WERE ROWDY
    AND SOME YEARS ACT REFINED;
    THERE'S SOME YOU CAN'T REMEMBER
    UNLESS THEY'RE UNDERLINED.

    BUT THIS ONE, MAY IT CHANGE THE PACE
    YOU'LL NEVER REALLY KNOW;
    UNTIL THE DAY IS OVER
    AND WE ALL GET TO SHOW.

    HOW MUCH WE REALLY CARE FOR YOU
    AND WISH THE BEST, FOR TRUE;
    AND SAY SOME CLEVER THINGS LIKE THIS
    YOUR AGE----IT SURE SHOWS THROUGH!!!
