This is kind of appropriate

I just realized that Memorial Day and National Missing Children’s Day in America both fell on the same date this year: today. Memorial Day is primarily thought of as a day to commemorate deceased loved ones, particularly veterans, but I’m sure it’s very meaningful for families and friends of the missing too. I know that in many cases a family will, after a period of time, hold a memorial service and sometimes even put up a gravestone in the cemetery.

In honor of this day I’d like to bring to your attention the Missing Veterans website, which publicizes the disappearances of veterans who vanished from the United States and other countries too.

    Thank you, Meaghan. I had no knowledge of the Missing Veterans website.
