Remembering Our Troops

Memorial Day is a holiday intended to remember those who gave their lives in service to their country. For me, it is also a time to remember those who are very vulnerable to making the same sacrifice.

I know so many who server or have family that serve and they do it without complaint and with pride. They know exactly what they are doing by fighting a war "over there" in order to keep it away from "over here." There is victory in that objective alone.

Recently one of our vets returned home and the neighbors lined the street with US flags, a security firm that has some of my neighbors as clients and the constable's office had cars lined up with lights flashing. He came down the street with hundreds of neighbors waiting and waving and he was treated like a hero because we remember the threat to his life he faces.

During a war, every day is Memorial Day. Today, remember those who gave their lives. Every day, remember those who may have to make the ultimate sacrifice and let them know you are grateful.
