If you’re like me, you’ll be stuck behind your computer this coming Monday. But that doesn’t mean you can’t participate in our nation’s recognition of our fallen war heroes.

Here are some online resources for you to visit, participate in, and remember those that made the ultimate sacrifice:

Fallen Heroes Memorial

“Fallen Heroes Memorial is an online memorial for all of the fallen servicemembers of Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom, including photos and visitor-submitted messages.”

Arlington National CemeteryVisit the official website of Arlington National Cemetery. Make sure to check out the “Ceremonies” page, and the “Photo Gallery.”

Memorial Day History

Read about the history of Memorial Day in the US.

Additionally, find Memorial Day remembrances in your area.

Maybe you’d like to make a donation to an organization supporting the memory of fallen soldiers, or their families:

Children of the Fallen Soldiers Relief Fund

 

Freedom is not Free

 

Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS)

 

American Gold Star Mothers, Inc.

The above are just a few of the many resources available to those of us who would like to remember our troops and support their survivors. I encourage you to find your own. If you have a particular favorite, please add a comment to this post with the link to the site.

While, on Memorial Day, we set aside time to remember the fallen, let us never forget those who still serve. Here is a great resource of ways you can help them.

Please do take some time this Monday to reflect on your freedoms and remember those who purchased them for us so dearly.

Here, let me help you

    Too late for this year, Chris, but if you do a similar post next May, this might be a good addition.
