Memorial Day Rememberance

Take a moment away from the BBQs and the party to stand in reverence of those fallen - for the kids who will never know their fathers, the wives who will never know the comfort from their warriors.

To those who have laid their lives on the line, paid the ultimate price...and to those who suffer for their benevolent choice to put themselves where others run away from...we are grateful and humbled.

Never forget, never be complacent...what we have today is because it has been paid for in blood. What we obtain too easily we esteem too lightly...we owe what we have to those that have gone before us.

Here is too the fallen, Godspeed brothers.

You got that right Gabe! My hat's off to those who fought and died for our and everyone else's freedom. That's one of the highest price one can pay and I will humbly remember them.

Most of us will never know what they've gone through. May they Rest in Peace.

As others have said, truly humbling.

It has been one of the best decisions of my life to serve on our Country's military. I honor those today that have given that ultimate sacrifice. God speed to them. I also will try to be the best American that I can..... and ATTEMPT to do my part to get this screwed up Country back on track, so that the ones who have laid down their lives, did not do it in vein!!!

I'm in too, thanks to all those who've fought and sacrificed for me and my family. I'm very thankful.
