We Remember

I just happen to be walking in Rockefeller Center today with family and saw they replaced the flags – normally of different countries – with all American ones in observance of Memorial Day in the US.

Not knowing a relative who fought in any conflict, its sometimes hard to appreciate the sacrifice the men and women of our service have made. Even if it isn’t the “ultimate” sacrifice, they often give up a life that we consider normal. Deploying overseas, living in barracks, & dedicating years serving our needs and those of other countries with which we share common goals.

So for all living and dead service members, who in peace time and in conflict, gave so much for us and others without asking for much in return….

Thank you.
