This weekend in the U.S. we celebrate Memorial Day. For many this means cook-outs and a long weekend on the lake. But I’d like to remind people of the true reason Memorial Day came to be.
Memorial Day, originally known as Decoration Day, was a day of remembrance for Union soldiers that died in the Civil War. It has since become a day to honor all service men and women who have bravely, and often willingly, given their lives in service to this wonderful country. As a proud veteran of the United States Air Force, I salute all of those who have paid the ultimate price defending our freedoms.
To those who gave all, Thank You.
