I celebrate Memorial differently than most since my mother fought more with my father than my father fighting in any war.
I give her more credit since she was not here during my life to defend herself. My father was here at least 50 years of my life with a minimal explanation of my mothers whereabouts.
I give her more credit from my point of view than any soldier that I know for fighting for the freedom of women during World War II.
How hard does a human being have to fight to be recognized as a warrior for freedom in the United States.
