Today for the first time in 9 years, our family made the short trip to Camp Butler National Cemetery. We were there for two reasons. One, I wanted to visit my grandpa’s grave. He was a WWII veteran before losing his battle with cancer in 2003 and the only grandpa I ever knew. Two, we wanted to give the kids a more hands on lesson about Memorial Day. Learning about the day in a school text book just doesn’t compare to walking through the cemetery, reading the names and remembering the fallen soldiers.
