Memorial Day

I thank my God for the many blessings He has led me to, I give those who paid the ultimate sacrifice my most crisp salute. To my fellow Soldiers at Arms I raise a toast to our mutual love of everything this great country stands for; Family, Freedom, Honor, and the value of each and every human being. I pray that one day all my friends and their loved ones will never know the anguish this day brings to far too many in this great land.

I long for the day when the American Flag is respected by all, be it at an event or simply seeing it wave gloriously in a neighbor's yard or some magnificent edifice. May it always remind us that our blessings come at a horrific cost, but one shouldered voluntarily by the American soldier, God give his grace to thee.

My love to all,
