    Memorial Day Weekend

    While many will get a 3 day weekend, and will have plans for grilling and fun, please give pause and remember the real reason for the holiday. Many gave the ultimate sacrifice, and we are blessed to have so many willing to serve today. May we always remember them, and thank them, for the chance to enjoy the time and festivities the freedom they bought us allows.

    Make it a true MEMORIAL Day, and everyone stay safe, as well!

    If you live in a small town, like I think most of us do, that has a Memorial Day ceremony, try to attend. The participants will appreciate your attendance. Your heart will swell with pride dut to the fact that you have shown your appreciation for those who died for the cause of freedom.

    Remember, every place in the world today where freedom rings, an American Soldier has once stood.

    Happy Memorial Day weekend to all. I want to share something. This is what I have on my lock screen on my cell phone.

    "Amidst the uncertainties of war, every soldier is entitled to one certainty......that he will not be forgotten or abandoned."

    "Poor is the nation that has no heroes.........Shameful is the one that, having them.......forgets."


    RIP my brothers in arms............I salute you all.

    May there always be brave souls who will stand to defend their country.

    God bless those who faced peril so that all may be free.

    Thank yous to all the veterans who sacrificed so much for our freedoms, our way of life, and our liberties. The veteran put his life on the line, gave up the comforts that we enjoy, faced death or loss of limb, traveled to lands that didn't want him there, goes infinite amount of time with little or no sleep, eats cold meals when he can, walks through rain, cold, heat, sun, etc., stares at crumbled, wrinkled pictures of his family that he keeps in his wallet and longs for home, and goes through so much more that most of us can't imagine. All to serve this country, to guarantee we have the freedoms we have today. And, for the most part, those who live off the government get better benefits, better pay, better care than the veteran does.

    Some may call me a veteran, but I don't. Luckily I served during a more peaceful time, though the Cold War was in full swing. But I'm ashamed to align myself with those who have combat tours under their belts. I feel I didn't pay as much of a price as those who did.

    God bless our troops.

    Terry, I am like you. I didn't serve in a conflict, but I would have if needed. You are still a hero to me. Thank you sir for volunteering for others who can't or won't. My hat is off to you.

    Terry, you don't need stripes on your right sleeve to stand with those of us who served in combat. I would proudly stand next to you.......and have your back anytime you need. Just the fact that you volunteered to join the greatest Army in the world makes you a true patriot.
