Memorial Day is coming up for all of America’s veterans to be remembered. Also to remember those who died for our country.  If you didn’t know this but The West Side Social Club has a as I call it a “tree” service. Why I call it that is because they have a tree for each veteran. In fact my uncle (Daniel M. Jones) has a tree. He was a Electrician on a boat in the Persian Gulf. Original (2100 × 1397)
