The first part of this special presentation is called "The Real Meaning Of The Day." No, this is not a 3 day weekend to honor those who served but those he gave everything.

Really any location with a beach but since I am back home now, it will always be The Jersey Shore for me.

Mike, you crushed both episodes. The weight of the true meaning of the holiday came through in Part 1without being overbearing (although tears were welling up at certain points, truth be told).
