Flag of my father- Remember our troops both past and present.

Flag of my father- Remember our troops both past and present.
by Jeffrey Topping

I would like to thank all of the forum members , their friends, and families for their service to their country. In the USA we celebrate Memorial Day as a weekend celebration to honor the fallen and the living. To never forget the past so as not to re-live it in the future.

A special mention for my father deceased active duty Captain Douglas C. Topping, 1976.

Catain Douglas Topping, USAF, 8th Tactical Fighter Wing


Memorial Day was officially proclaimed on 5 May 1868 by General John Logan, national commander of the Grand Army of the Republic, in his General Order No. 11 , and was first observed on 30 May 1868, when flowers were placed on the graves of Union and Confederate soldiers at Arlington National Cemetery. The first state to officially recognize the holiday was New York in 1873. By 1890 it was recognized by all of the northern states. The South refused to acknowledge the day, honoring their dead on separate days until after World War I (when the holiday changed from honoring just those who died fighting in the Civil War to honoring Americans who died fighting in any war). It is now celebrated in almost every State on the last Monday in May (passed by Congress with the National Holiday Act of 1971 (P.L. 90 – 363) to ensure a three day weekend for Federal holidays), though several southern states have an additional separate day for honoring the Confederate war dead: January 19 in Texas, April 26 in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, and Mississippi; May 10 in South Carolina; and June 3 (Jefferson Davis’ birthday) in Louisiana and Tennessee.

In 1915, inspired by the poem “In Flanders Fields,” Moina Michael replied with her own poem:

We cherish too, the Poppy red
That grows on fields where valor led,
It seems to signal to the skies
That blood of heroes never dies.

This weekend the Flag of my father will once again see the light of day.

Spring is almost here and its time to release a new dram for the occasion. I have been busy getting labels made and signed for a Single Cask, Single Malt, bottled at cask streangth 49% alc./vol from our friends at the Bunnahabhain Distillery located on the Isle of Islay. If you are a fan of this wonderful distillery than this bottling should be a treat as it has been aged for 22 years to reach perfection or at least to my perfection.

Labels ready to sign

And Scotch bedside the fire
Laughter to cheer you
And those cigars you love near you,
And all that your heart may desire
