Today we take time to honor those who have sacrificed so much of themselves and their families for our freedoms in this County.
On days like today, when I think about honoring our soldiers, I think about the many men in my own family who have made those sacrifices: My husband, my brother-in-law, father-in-law, grandfather, and cousins to name but a few. I have countless friends who spouses, children, and extended families are also serving or have served.
I just want to say thank you: For sacrificing not only your time, your comfort, and your families so that we can enjoy the freedoms in this county that mean so much. Thank you isn’t nearly enough but it’s a start.
Happy Memorial Day!
