"Memorial Day" Remember and give thanks!

Honoring those who have given their lives in the service of our country!
Pearl Harbor, a tribute to those who gave their lives. As President
Roosevelt said "December 7, 1941, a day that will live in infamy!"

We also must not forget those in the Army, Navy, Air Force and Coast Guard who pledge their lives to protect us around the world.

These are the heroes of today! Young men and women who have accepted todays challenges to protect us 24/7, 365 days a year.

Don't forget them! We are thankful and pray for them daily.

No matter where you are, please take the time to thank those who are in uniform or those who proudly wear a hat that shows they are a vet.

You may share a tear with one who you have made feel appreciated.

Let us never return to a period where our vets were ill treated for their serving our country ie. Vietnam. God pray for us!

I thought I'd point out that you forgot to mention the Marine Corps, but after reading your blog again, I realized you did mention the Navy, of which the Marines are a part of. Nicely done!
