Memorial Day — 12 Comments

  1. If your dad was a resident of PA while in the service during one of the wars, his name should be one there. I don’t know how names were collected. I didn’t ask my mom but I’m sure there were archives that they went thru. Both my grandfathers had come here, via Ellis Island, just after WWI from Europe. By the time WWII happened neither served due to their ages, so their names aren’t on the wall. But their male sons from both sides of course served since they were all born here.

  2. don’t know if my father or grandfather’s names are on the wall. my dad was born in Garwood nj but loved Perth Amboy, My grandfather lived in amboy all his life i believe.

  3. My father’s name actually appears twice. Perth Amboy did their due diligence in researching the Veterans’ names. I had called in my father’s name when their announcement was made. So it appeared twice.

  4. On the webpage being shared here I researched and put some interesting facts about the history surrounding the creation of Memorial Day. Did you know that it is believed that it was the freed slaves (called Freedmen back then) after the Civil War that started the decorating of the graves of fallen Union soldiers? This was an indirect connection to a tradition that began in Charleston, South Carolina. Read about it on the webpage using the link above.

  5. Here is a trick I now use… When we bite into a “loaded” burger the toppings almost always smoosh out. For you cheese lovers… Before adding to cheese to melt on your burger, put the pickles on first, then add the cheese. Put lettuce on the bottom of the bun with a slice of cheese. When the cheese is melted on the burger add the hot burger on top of the waiting bottom bun then top with your other fixings. The cheese is the glue that hold the burger together! 🙂
