Memorial Day 2022: Links to Past Articles

May your Memorial Day be meaningful.

Memorial Day unofficially heralds the summer season of the year — even though summer does not officially begin for another month — and having a weekend of three days prompts people to either travel or enjoy cooking out delicious food on the backyard grill at home with loved ones while relaxing…

Memorial Day 2022: Links to Past Articles

…but Memorial Day is also a somber day to remember those who have lost their lives while fighting for the United States — and it is a day to remember them and the service which they provided to protect the United States from its enemies and adversaries.

Links to past articles which have been posted to The Gate which pertain to Memorial Day include:

  • Changing of the Guard at Arlington National Cemetery — In honor of Memorial Day 2022 and those brave men and women who have sacrificed their lives for the people of the United States, here is some raw unedited video of the changing of the guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington National Cemetery which I shot back on Friday, April 15, 2016 — and I will let that moving video do all of the talking. This article contains some photographs which I took from that day.
  • Marietta National Cemetery — Just east of the center of downtown of the city of Marietta in the state of Georgia is a national cemetery which contains the remains of 10,132 officers and soldiers — and arguably, no day is better to commemorate their service that Memorial Day to acknowledge them. This article contains photographs and historical information about the cemetery.
  • How Do You Deal With Inexperienced Travelers? Happy Memorial Day — The fact that many people are off from work and children are out of school for a significant amount of time — some for the summer — fuels the desire to travel. Airports become crowded, flights become full, roads become clogged with traffic, and hotel properties become sold out; and those who are inexperienced with travel are taking to the airways — possibly with you. Call it an honest lack of experience or call it ignorance — but to some FlyerTalk members, traveling with people who are inexperienced with travel in general and apparently do not know their boundaries can exacerbate the stress already inherent with travel.

  • Listen to Radio Decades Ago From New York — Music, News, Commercials, and More — As a tradition of every Memorial Day weekend for years, a dentist named Alan Sniffen brings back Musicradio 77 for all to enjoy and remember through Rewound Radio, which is his streaming broadcast station that plays music from the years 1960 through 1982 — 24 hours per day, seven days per week. That tradition continues this weekend. This article contains more information about this tradition.

Final Boarding Call

Thank you for reading The Gate — and I hope that your Memorial Day weekend is going as well as can be and is as meaningful as possible…

…and may those brave people who fought for our country and lost their lives in the process pest in peace.
