    Memorial Day 2016, plus GRAND Social No. 209 link party for grandparents

    Memorial Day 2016

    In recognition, remembrance, and sincere appreciation of the many brave men and women who courageously gave their all for us and for our great — yes, great! — country.

    Thank you to all members of the military, past and present, and their families, too!

    GRAND Social No. 209

    Thank you for joining this week's GRAND Social link party!

    grand social link party

    How it works:

    • All grandparent bloggers are invited to add a link. You don't have to blog about grandparenting, just be a grandparent who blogs.
    • Grandparents who do not blog (or want to share something other than their own post) are welcome to add links to other posts grandparent readers may be interested in.
    • To link up a post, copy the direct URL to the specific post — new or old — that you want to share, not the link to the blog or website home page. Then click the blue button below marked "Add your link" and follow the directions.
    • I reserve the right to remove posts I feel are inappropriate. (Which hasn't happened yet, but I feel obligated to note that, just in case.)
    • Those who add links to the GRAND Social link party will be sent a weekly reminder when the party goes live. If you prefer to be removed from that email list, feel free to do so (and you'll still be more than welcome to join the party any time).
    • If adding your own post, including a mention such as This post linked to the GRAND Social to your linked posts is appreciated. Or, you can post the GRAND Social button anywhere on your page using the following code:
    <a rel="nofollow" href="http://grandmasbriefs.com" target="blank"><img src="http://grandmasbriefs.squarespace.com/storage/GRANDsocialbutton.jpg" alt="Grandma’sBriefs.com" width="125" height="125" /></a>
    • The GRAND Social linky accepts posts through Wednesday evening, so please come back to see those added after your first visit.
    • If you're not a linker, you have the pleasure of being a reader. Those sharing a link would be honored to have you visit, read and, if so moved, leave a comment even if just "Hey, stopping by from the GRAND Social." Bloggers who link are encouraged to visit and comment on the links of other bloggers, as well.

    Every day I'm thankful that so many have taken up arms to defend my right to freedom. A blessed Memorial Day to all.

    A blessed Memorial Day to those who served - or love someone who has served - this (already!) great country of ours!

    May was a busy month for my family, but all good celebrations! I always honor and remember those in our armed forces and the ultimate sacrifices they make to preserve our freedoms!

    My father served in WWII. He was the 'bugle boy' and had to play over 150 melodies for different activities on their base. While he didn't give his life serving our country, I do appreciate his willingness to enlist.
