Memorial Day

Monday is a day which causes most veterans to pause and reflect upon the sacrifices of our brothers and sisters for the cause of freedom. It's a day to remember that the sacrifice of a few, in combat, was what created this nation and that all of those who have paid the ultimate price for said freedom have made it last all these decades.

I lift a glass to the memory of absent companions. Whether I knew you or even met you is moot, you served, you are my brother and I hold the memory of your sacrifice dear.

Have an enjoyable Memorial Day in honor of those who made it possible to do so in a free society.

Yes. And for those I love that were able to come home, a phone call later to tell them I love them.
