This weekend is Memorial day. I would ask any and all who read this blog to take a few moments out of your weekend to honor those men and women who gave their lives so that we can enjoy the precious freedom we have in the United States. If you know someone who served in our military, call them up and thank them. If you see a soldier give them a hug.

Remember the blood soaked rags that covered the feet of the Continental Army during their march to Trenton in 1777. Remember soldiers who held up the flag at Fort McHenry during the War of 1812. Remember the Alamo! Remember the 23,000 men who died at Antiem in one day and the thousands at Gettysburg to make the dream of freedom a realization for all people in the U.S. Remember the Maine! Remember those soldiers who blood soaked the sand at NOrmandy and the Pacific islands red to free the world from tyrany and others from death. Remember the soldiers who fought so that another 30 million people in the world could live under the freedom we have enjoyed for so long.

God bless our military and the men and women who serve. God bless the families of these men and women; protect them and sustain them in these times.

Pround son of a military veteran,
