The event is going to be great. Let's remember the real meaning of Memorial Day and remember those that gave their lives fighting for our freedom.

Very true.

For some of us, we live with thiis everyday. Not just one day a year. I know that once I am out of the service, I will still live with it.

Remember the fallen. They are heros.

The way you play the game is the way you live your life.

The painting is of the Vietnam Memorial Wall and of course Memorial Day is not for just Vietnam Fallen Heroes. However, having said that, here is a poem that goes with the Vietnam Memorial Wall "From the Other Side". For those who think it off topic, my apologies. I would guess all of us know someone who died in war. Now go kill each other and get gold tonight if you can.

Today is Armed Forces Day. It seems self serving to me to be posting this link but here it is.

I love sailing the Ghost Skull as the Ghost Rider. There weren't really any teams though. Everyone was killing everyone.

Just want to say that the turnout was amazing. Conrad commendeered me into being the skipper on his ship and we floated bloody terror on the high seas. At one point even a big lobster joined the gunnery crew. It was fabulous!

LoL

Davy Jones is more that happy tonight. His locker is full! Thanks to all that turned out and a big thank you to Conrad for being such a good sport! I know everyone had a great time. The organizers of this event – Julie_Love in particular – are certainly to be commended for their efforts!

This is what Home is all about. Community events like this make it special!

I had a great time and very likely would do it again. Julie_Love, thank you for organizing this. Joanna, thanks for being the captain of my ship.

There are so many people to name here, and a few haven't even posted in this thread. I want to thank you all. Thank goodness in a virtual world, we are able to resurrect ourselves.

I played for three hours, as did most of us. We took a short break and then went at it again. Definitely an event worth repeating.

And Memorial Day is coming soon. Remember our fallen heroes and what they sacrificed so that we can enjoy the freedom and life that we have today. Many people in the world still don't have that today. And there are a few countries that don't appreciate us, but a few even have memorials of their own that honor our people and military.

This is not a political statement. If they can remember our fallen, then we should too.

The way you play the game is the way you live your life.

At 10:45pm ET: After 30min i wasted by trying to get in the server i finally get to play it. After a short break, I was the only captain (as Panda Sandwich) in my ship: my attempt to Chast Conrad's Ship and use my Cannon. however my cannon sank due to a other ship.

So i enter to a other ship, i able to sink Conrad's ship TWO time, later got sanked few times by the rest of the ship.

But still Conrad, you was lucky. but no. you lose
