Life Lessons of a Military Wife (overseas in Europe!): Memorial Day in Flanders Field

Life Lessons of a Military Wife (overseas in Europe!)

My goal here is to make your life easier, especially those who are in the unique situation of being a military spouse. Yes...I've been around...but in a good way...and hopefully can share those tips, tricks and shortcuts with you too. I've been on this military bus for over 40 years now. My goals in life are to have a well-run home, few money worries, well adjusted children, money socked away and whatever happiness I can scoop out of life.

After life as an Army brat, being in the Army myself and marrying a soldier, I can honestly say I have a bucket full of life lessons I can share to help you make your everyday life easier and enlightening. Don't waste your time making unnecessary mistakes and benefit from others who have come before you on your journey through life.

Memorial Day in Flanders Field

I will make this short and sweet today and want to wish everyone a safe and wonderful Memorial Day!  We took the time to honor our fallen at Flanders Field American Military Cemetery in Belgium.  I had never attended a Memorial Day remembrance at any military cemetery, so I wasn't quite sure what to expect.

I was humbled by the care and precision that went into the ceremony and touched by the local townspeople and even a representative from the King of Belgium (yes, we have one of those) who took time out of their weekend to honor Americans.  Please click on the video below for a short tour of the highlights and consider going to a ceremony in your area today:-)

Thanks for the post...When I was at Ramstein we also visited military cemeteries on Memorial Day - it was usually a squadron and/or wing event. I miss that now that I'm back in the States.

What a way to spend Memorial Day--at Flanders Field.

I have never visited a military cemetery on Memorial Day--it must have been quite poignant!
