But on Memorial Day, we can take that one step further, and remember why this holiday was designated: to honor the men and women who died serving in the U.S. Military. Each individual left his or her family to fight to preserve our rights and freedoms.
We celebrate those who made that sacrifice, and whose lives were changed by serving in the military. I'd like to thank those close to me who are still serving; a shout out to nephews Elton and Hunter, and to other family members who are proud veterans: Father-in-law Bill, Brother-in-law Jim H, sister Mary Therese, nephew Bob B and cousin Tom W. Remembrances for veteran uncles Bob and Milo whose lives were changed because of the war and who have passed away.
Thank you for your service! I'll continue to keep you in mind and in my prayers of thanksgiving.
I'm working on it.
