in and let's remember together, as we pay tribute to those who are Gone
But Not Forgotten! This is our third season in CyberSpace,
and I hope, our most memorable. Memorial Day in CyberSpace and Veterans
Day in CyberSpace have proven to be, two of the most important sites
to date in my Holidays
in CyberSpace series. Both sites touch so many people, for so many
reasons, that they have almost become a living, breathing entity
I say this with great pride, to be able to help!
It is with this same pride and honor, that I display the Award that Memorial Day in CyberSpace won for First Place in the 1999 Military Web Wars Round 14. (A 10-day contest!)
Memorial Day in CyberSpace is a little less traditional in the fact that I honor everyone here, even those that are/were not war heroes. Memorial Day is a day when families, friends, colleagues remember those that have passed on. It is just another time to remember and pay tribute. Memorial Day, formerly known as Decoration Day is a legal holiday which is celebrated the last Monday in May in most of the United States. The holiday's main meaning is to honor the nation's armed services personnel who were killed in war time. Memorial Day has different meaning to different people. Traditionally the day is marked by parades, memorial speeches, ceremonies, and as the beginning of the summer holidays. Memorial Day was first observed on May 30, 1868 for the purpose of decorating the graves of those killed in the American Civil War.
at Memorial Day in CyberSpace we are going to honor all those soldiers
who have served us in the past, are serving us in the present, and will
serve us in the future. These men and women have given of themselves for
the protection of their fellow neighbors. They deserve celebration every
day of the year but unfortunately that is not the case. So, with this
in mind, I hope to create a site of recognition in their honor.
We should also pay tribute to those great Americans who have served their country, cities, states, and humanity police, firefighters, members of emergency rescue services, members of our governmental offices, entertainers, astronauts, and anyone else who has passed on and served humanity for the good of our great nation! All these people are the heroes of our times. We don't give it much thought when these people are making us happy or helping us we just enjoy and accept, and expect! Now it's time to give back for that enjoyment and help. It's time to pay tribute! Memorial Day should not be selective. Everyone should be/deserves to be remembered!
year we have yet another tragedy to pay tribute to, and thousands to mourn.
Being a New Yorker, this is very personal to me. Below is a tribute
that I wrote months ago, and would like to display here in the space of
site will remain up indefinitely and
will be gathering together memorabilia, resources, music, graphics, pictures
where applicable, and more. If you have anything to contribute or know
of an addition that would be appropriate please write
me and I would be glad to review them and feature them in this page.
I look forward to hearing from you.
When I started this page I had no idea the difficulty with which it would
be created. Just visiting the sites and feeling the pain with which some
of them were created brings back to mind the heartache still felt
by the families of those that did not come back. Please say a prayer
for them now!

This award means a great deal to me as an American.
It was given to me by a Veteran who felt that my pages displayed a
patriotism that deserved recognition. I am glad that I was able to
reflect the strong feelings that I have toward my country and
my fellow man and the gratefulness I feel for what they have done to
keep our country free and democratic. Thank you Bud, I am honored to display it.
