I donate money, once a month to the Paralyzed Veterans Of America. Below is an email I received from them today. Please note the link that will guide you to a National cemetery in order to show your respect to the Men and Women that have ensured our FREEDOM.
I'll be attending the service at Tahoma National cemetery at noon.
In Memory of Our Nations Fallen Heroes

In return, many of our beloved fathers, mothers, family, and dear friends made the ultimate sacrifice - their lives - in the protection of our freedoms. Their devotion, commitment, and triumphs have since been forgotten by too many of us.On this Memorial Day, remember the brave men and women who sacrificed their lives for one reason . . . so that we can all have the opportunity to LIVE THEAMERICANN DREAM!How Can You Observe Memorial Day on Monday, May 29, 2006?
