My life has been blessed, touched, and protected by the military just like yours has. I have family members and friends who gave their life to protect our country, and I have some who have passed after years of service.
I’m most proud of my brother, a Gulf War vet, who served faithfully for 23 years.
And while the day is full of cookouts and sales and trips to the beach, I just wanted to write to say, “Thank You”.
I know that some of you served faithfully in the military. Thank you.
I know that some of you have lost family members in the military. I mourn with you.
I know that some of you, and many of your family members, continue in service. I pray for you and them.
So, on this Memorial Day, I salute all of military, past and present. I’m thankful for our freedom.
I hope you enjoy the day. If you are off, rest with family and have a great day. If you are working, thank you.
