Memorial Day Memories

Remember on Memorial Day

Every year, as Memorial Day approaches, I begin to think of just what this day means. It is a time for family get-togethers. A three-day weekend that marks the first unofficial day of summer, and it gives us some time for hanging out with friends and enjoying your kids or parents.

As we enjoy our Memorial Day, let us not forget the millions of people who sacrificed to give us this day as free citizens. As we slap some food on the grill, munch on some chips and watch a ball game, there is a man or woman sweating in a desert somewhere, or sailing in the middle of nowhere, just so we can have a great weekend.

My thoughts and prayers go out to all those who have fought, and still fight, for our freedom. Our debt to you can never be fully repaid.
