Memorial Day


My grandfather served in World War II for 3 years then came home to the wife he had married in July, before he was deployed in November of 1942. He went on to live a long and healthy life and passed away if October 2008. His years in the military were something that he still talked about in his last years. Something that effected him deeply that most of us, unless we serve our country, will never understand. It doesn't seem enough to just say thank you but he never even asked for that, he fought because he loved his country, he loved his family and he loved his freedom. He stood up for us so we could be free to live the lives we live today.

Thank you so much to all those who have served and do serve to protect us each and every day.
Take a moment today to remember the veterans in your life who are no longer with us and take a moment to say thank you to those who are.

Thank you for this tribute to your Grandfather and a thank you to him for serving in the military and fighting for our country. Thank you doesn't seem enough. We owe our soldiers a great debt.
