    How will you be remembering those who have died in our nations service?

    Visiting the grave of a loved one?
    Attending or participating in a Memorial Day parade?
    BBQ with family and friends?
    Working?

    Looks like our President will be vacationing in Chicago.

    Obama will use Memorial weekend for a trip home to Chicago

    Vice President Biden and his wife will appear in Obama's place at Arlington National Cemetary.

    Rolling Thunder then a concert on the West Lawn on Sunday.

    Parade on Monday.

    I'm of no importance, so it's no big deal that I miss Arlington. I went there last weekend anyway.

    (unbelievable)

    Spending the long weekend on the boat. We always attend the morning parade in the marina's town and then anchor at night near where the fireworks are set off. Between those two events annoy the PETA folks by grilling some beef and stuff, a few brews, and the Cubbies game on the radio. The whole day's sort of a religious experience every year.

    Seriously, right? I'd be curious to know if any other President has skipped the MD services.

    I cannot believe that. What a rude thing for him to do. Is it too much to ask that Obama show respect for the fallen service men and women on Memorial Day??
