Memorial Day: A Thank You



THANK YOU to all the men and women of the armed forces and to all of our vets: Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines and Coast Guard, for your sacrifice.  You will never be forgotten.

Amen to that. May we all remember that this day goes far beyond just being a day given off from work.

Such a succinct yet lovely tribute, Tina.

Totally agreed. And I'm really really happy that you didn't get Memorial Day and Veterans Day. Not that we shouldn't show our appreciation to living soldiers too, but we have to tip our hats to those who gave the ultimate sacrifice.

Dear Tina,

A poignant message on a poignant day. Respect for those who served and for those who survived. Blessed be those who are suffering with the lingering hell of war. May we, no matter where we live, reach out to the homeless Veterans.

In peace and hope on Memorial Day and beyond.

Your friend,

Gary
