Welcome to America -- have a safe flight and enjoy your first Memorial Day weekend, well, what's left of it by the time you arrive! You can ask your fiance what that important holiday is all about.

"The Marines I have seen around the world have the cleanest bodies, the filthiest minds, the highest morale, and the lowest morals of any group of animals I have ever seen. Thank God for the United States Marine Corps!" - Eleanor Roosevelt, First Lady of the United States, 1945.

Congratulations and welcome to the USA! As Leatherneck mentioned, enjoy your first Memorial Day! We celebrate and honor all those men and women who have sacrificed and are still sacrificing their lives for this great country! All the liberties that we often take for granted is due to their selfless service to protect and preserve them.
