FLY YOUR FLAG ON MONDAY,
MAY 28th!

 

Many people think of Memorial Day as the beginning of summer, but it is primarily a time of remembrance. Memorial Day started as an event to honor Union soldiers, who had died during the American Civil War. It was inspired by the way people in the Southern states honored their dead. After World War I, it was extended to include all men and women who died in any war or military action. This day was originally known as Decoration Day, but  since World War II it has been known as Memorial Day. It used to always be celebrated on May 30th, but in 1968, the Uniform Holidays Bill was passed to create three-day weekends. Since 1971, it has been observed on the last Monday in May. In honor of Memorial Day, government offices, banks and schools in Indian River County will be closed next Monday. Join at Sebastian Riverview Park for the dedication of a new monument that has been erected and honors the heroic actions that occurred on February 3, 1943, as the USAT Dorchester was torpedoed by a German U-boat and sank within twenty minutes. Please take a moment to read the post below. It is quite touching. It is longer than our usual post but worthy of the space it occupies. May we all be reminded of the great sacrifice that so many have made throughout the years that have secured the freedoms we all enjoy and often take for granted. A personal and heartfelt thank you from FLASH to all of our FLASHERS who have served our wonderful country! We sincerely thank you and are forever in your debt!     
 
In this issue, you will find ideas to help you enjoy the long weekend. If you plan to travel, don't miss the tip below from our archives for dealing with love bugs which is reprinted from one of our early editions.
week's calendarSebastian Unveiling of Monument honoring WWII's " The Four Chaplains"

At 11 a.m. on May 28, 2012 at Riverview Park, Sebastian, FL the annual Memorial Day service will take place. During the ceremony, presentation of the Four Chaplains monument to the City of Sebastian will take place. The monument commemorates the Four Chaplains and Interfaith in Action. The Four Chaplains Monument Committee of Indian River County, FL. is proud to have Dorchester survivor Ernie Heaton and Sebastian Honor Guard Officer Charlie Long light the monument's "Eternal Flame". Heaton, who is now 89, was the last man to see the Four Chaplains alive as he abandoned ship on that fateful morning of February 3, 1943. The North County Veterans advisory committee invites the public to the monument dedication. The Four Chaplains Monument will be a permanent place for all to gather and learn about these immortal men and the importance of "Interfaith in Action"

The monument honors the heroic actions that occurred on February 3, 1943, as the USAT Dorchester was torpedoed by a German U-boat and sank within twenty minutes. Of the 902 soldiers and crew on board, only 229 survived. Many of those survivors owe their lives to the four special men- chaplains of various faiths- Father John Washington (Catholic), the Rev. Clark Poling (Dutch Reformed), Rabbi Alexander Goode (Jewish) and the Rev. George Fox (Methodist). The four chaplains aboard the USAT Dorchester represented three faiths working together as one. As the ship began to sink, the four chaplains spread out among the soldiers, calming the frightened, tending to the injured and guiding the men to lifeboats. When no more life jackets were available to give out, the chaplains took off their own life jackets and gave them to four soldiers who they did not even know. The USAT Dorchester was rapidly sinking, and having made their fateful commitment, the Chaplains braced against the railing of the bow, their arms linked together, and their strong voices heard through the icy cold midnight air : "Our Father, which art in Heaven, Hallowed be Thy name, Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done" and "Shma Yisroel Adonai Elohenu Adonai Echod". These great Americans, who as Brothers, found strength in their diversity by focusing on the Eternal Father they all shared.

The Four Chaplains monument is made of polished black granite that features large laser cut images of the Chaplains and the USAT Dorchester. An "eternal flame" is located on the bow of the ship, The monument rests on a limestone bolder that is 10 feet long, four feet wide, and five feet high. It is set into an 18 foot diameter fountain which has water sprays and night time illumination.
.
There will be a "Memorial Brick Walkway" that surrounds the monument and joins together all of the Veterans monuments presently located in Riverview Park. The bricks, made from red clay boast indelible black glass letters that withstand all of the elements including the hot Florida sun. The walkway is handicap accessible and will be in place for Memorial Day. Orders are presently being taken for the purchase of bricks which are priced reasonably at $35 each, or 3 for $100. The pathway with engraved ordered bricks is expected to be presented on July 4th 2012.

 WALKING vs. RUNNING 
 ADVICE  FOR KNEE PAIN
 
According to Dr. Oz, when you run, with each step you take, you put about four times your weight on your joints! (Wow! That means if you weigh 150, that's 600 lbs!) He suggests easing into it by walking 30 minutes a day and doing strength training a few days a week. You can build up the muscles around your knees by doing lunges or squats.  Cycling is also good for knees. Running on a treadmill or track rather than on pavement is also better.  After a month, try running again. Dr. Oz suggests adding calcium, magnesium and vitamins C and D to your diet to help prevent osteoarthritis. Vitamin C  helps with the absorption of calcium and should be taken with  calcium.  He also recommends going to a specialty sneaker store to have your gait analyzed to find shoes with the proper support.

UNDERSTANDING ONLINE BANKING
Chances are, you have been offered incentives by your bank to switch to online banking.  In addition to the convenience of not having to write paper checks, some of the other perks usually include no fees on checking accounts, easy access to your checking history (without having to wade through tons of saved paper), as well as your deposit history, which can help at tax time. You can also set up automatic payments for things like your mortgage or car, so that you're never late. One of our FLASH staff has been using online banking since its inception and loves it, saying that she can now pay all her monthly bills in minutes,- and there's no postage required!
 
You may be able to set up an online account at your bank's website and your bank will guide you through the process. It involves entering the names and addresses of your payees and your account number with the company or person. (Some major companies will be listed automatically.) You do this just one time, then the names will remain on your online account and you simply type in the amount you owe when you pay your bills. It will certainly make your life easier and if you're worried about security, your bank will explain its protection policy.
