Hi there folks, how's your Memorial day celebration. We did not go out the house until 2 pm today. We dropped by at the Blue Star Memorial, a newly built place dedicated to the Armed Forces that have defended the country.
This was funded by the Weirton Steel company to honor all the veterans from WV who served the military.
My husband explained to the kids the importance of these people who are listed on this wall, their sacrifices and their dedication.
I just find it odd that veterans here in WV are not given any special privilege like discount from stores and other entities. When you go to other State like Ohio or PA, veterans like my husband is given a 10% discount on purchases and the retirement pay is not taxable unlike here in WV where retirement is being taxed.
But anyhow, we proceeded to JCP and bought the kids some clothing and I got hubs an advanced father's day present. Then on the way home, we visited Dad and stayed there till 7 pm. The two men talked about military while we were there.
