Memorial Day Tribute
By Truth in Miscellaneous
For me Memorial Day means primarily one thing and that is honoring those who lost their lives in service to their country. Of course there are others who hold other meanings for this day and it is not my intent to belittle those meanings, but rather express who I think about on Memorial Day. This year, much like the past few years Memorial Day holds a more present meaning for many families around the country. Soldiers, Marines, Airmen, Sailors, and Coast Guard who have lost their lives not only to keep America free, but fighting for the freedom of others.
While this weekend also means travel plans for many, and getting together with family and friends please take time out to remember the hundreds of family and friends who are affected each time a warrior dies in service to his/her nation. Those who are in harms way have put everything on the line so keep them in your prayers, but raise you glasses, pay tribute, and remember those who sacrificed everything.
Please no political rants in your comments, whatever your views keep it about those who gave all.
