Memorial Day

As we enjoy this holiday and the three-day weekend that signals the unofficial start of summer, let's don't forget the reason behind the occasion. Our nation pauses to salute those who have given their lives in past and present conflicts, in defense of the freedom and liberty we are so prone to take for granted.

Let us thank God for the sacrifice of these brave men and women, and remember as well the families who have been left behind.

May God bless America.

Hi Richard,

I saw your comment over at Rachelle's and stopped by to thank you for serving in the military. I am so grateful for the freedoms we have and never want to take for granted the high cost that's been paid.

My son is currently serving in the U.S. Army - he enlisted right after 9/11. I'm so proud of him.

Happy Memorial Day!

Came over from Rachelle's. Thank you for serving. My husband is USMA - 1967 graduate, and a Vietnam Vet.

Appreciate your service!
