  1. Please be careful of saying "Happy Memorial Day".
    My husband is an Iraq veteran with PTSD and has been haunted this week by one too many "Happy Memorial Days"...
    We know that people mean well, our own military members (who haven't been served in war zones)have said it. It's just that those who suffer up close the loss of the fallen, are further traumatized by the "cheerful" sentiment.
