As Memorial Day weekend comes around again, I would like to say a few things.
While a lot of you will be out having BBQs and drinking, please take a few moments out of your day to remember what it is really all about.
It’s easy to say “2,000 soldiers died” but it’s so much more than that. 2,000 peoples’ girlfriends/boyfriends, husbands/wives, mothers and fathers, sisters and brothers, sons and daughters, nieces and nephews, aunts and uncles, and grandparents lost a loved one. Each military personnel lost, had a life, a love, a family, a laugh, an amazing smile and a great personality.
You may know someone who’s lost a soldier, sailor, marine or airmen.
So please, if you see a man or woman in uniform, going about their business, thank them. They give more that a lot of you would know.
All give some. Some gave all.
