Memorial Day 2012 - Thank you..

Over the past ~236 years, many have laid down their lives for the cause of liberty and freedom. This Memorial Day, I wanted to remember those who have given their lives, and also thank their families, who suffered so much pain as a result of their loss. Because of these sacrifices, most of the rest of us were granted the liberty to enjoy the freedom associated with living in this great nation. “Never has so much been owed to so few by so many.” “Freedom is not free; somebody else paid for it...” Undoubtedly, in the future, others will be called on to serve and protect our country; if they fail to answer, and if we fail to support them, know that our enemies are willing to take it away. Pray this never happens, because the rest of us will only be able to reflect upon what we had & lost. I fellow Warrent Officer who flew with by brother Tim in Vietnam, sent me this article a few days ago. I would encourage you to read it. - Have a blessed Memorial Day.
