If you’ve been around here much you know that I’m both a veteran and the mother of a currently serving Marine. You also likely know that I have some issues with how this country marks Memorial Day. Typically you’ll find me up on my soapbox ranting about how this day isn’t the unofficial start of summer or the perfect time to get a great deal on a mattress. It isn’t even about current service members or veterans like me. It is the day we honor those who gave all in service of our country. So, why would I be in any way okay with talking about a Free Vail for Veterans hotel promotion?
The answer is this… veterans honor our fallen differently. We gather. Remembrance is a group activity. We tell worn out stories of the brave, crazy, momentous, and mundane things done by those who served before and beside us but are no longer with us. A drink, a laugh, feats of strength and airings of grievances, that is how we process our losses.
So, to me, it seems very fitting that I share this promotion.
