This is a very special weekend for us because we are celebrating Memorial Day and I am proud to say I am a 27 year veteran of the active Army, Army
National Guard and U.S. Army Reserves. We celebrate Memorial Day so we can never forget the price that has been paid by our Women and Men
in the Military for the Freedom we have today.
For more than two hundred years, men and women of faith and courage have laid down their lives to secure freedom for this country. Blood was shed--
and continues to be shed-- so that Americans no matter what color they are can enjoy liberty, democracy, and freedom without fear of reprisal.
To our Women and Men serving in our Armed Forces lets us say a prayer for their safety:
"Lord, hold our troops in your loving hands, Protect them as they protect us. Bless them and their families for the selfless acts they perform for us in our time of need. We ask this in the name of our Lord and Savior, Amen"
Thank You and please let a Veteran know that you appreciate the sacrifices they have made for us so we can enjoy freedom.
