Happy Memorial Day Everyone…

I hope everyone is having a safe and happy Memorial Day, and I hope that everyone will take a moment sometime during the day to remember those who gave their lives for our country–and the families they left behind. 

Despite the fact that there are several veterans among my family, fortunately,  I don’t  know any fallen heroes personally.   However,  I am very aware of their existence and of the sacrifice that they made–and I am grateful.  I shudder to think what our country might be like if brave young men and women were not willing to serve and protect it.

We live just a few miles away from Ft. Stewart, Georgia, home of the 3rd ID.  The 3rd ID has always been a very large part of the war in Iraq, so of course there have been many casualties within the 3rd ID.  It saddens me every time I hear of another fallen soldier.  So many young husbands, fathers and sons, wives, mothers, daughters…gone too soon.

Let’s enjoy our day of family get-together, picnics, relaxing at the beach, fishing, swimming, or whatever, but as we do so, let’s remember what this holiday is really all about…Have a great day everyone!
