In Memory

Today is Memorial Day.

From Wikipedia:

Memorial Day is a United States federal holiday that honors soldiers and is observed on the last Monday of May (May 30 in 2011). Formerly known as Decoration Day, it commemorates U.S. soldiers who died while in the military service.[1] First enacted to honor Union and Confederate soldiers following the American Civil War,[2] it was extended after World War I to honor Americans who have died in all wars.

I don’t personally know anyone who has died during service, but I do know quite a few veterans, including both of my grandfathers, an uncle, a few cousins, and some friends’ spouses.

If you get a chance today, please thank a veteran. Or, take the opportunity to remember one who didn’t come back from war.

Until next time,

Liberty
