Remember Memorial Day

Here’s to taking time off to observe one of our most sacred holidays.  It is the day to reflect on the sacrifices and services of the American soldiers and veterans.  From Arlington National Cemetery to all the other national cemeteries; not only in this country, but on foreign soil also, where soldiers fought and died for freedom. 

Memorial Day strives to stir the patriotic sentiments of every American citizen and remind us that we owe our freedom and liberty to the finest of young men and women who laid down their lives for us ~ they paid the extreme price for the freedom we enjoy today. 

Bill, my favorite veteran:
Bamberg, Germany ~ early 1967

Instructor at 1st Engineering Training Brigade
Ft. Leonard Wood, MO
fall of 1967

God Bless all service members and God Bless the U. S. A.!

Have a happy, safe Memorial Day, everyone!
