Sunday Citar Memorial Day weekend is a great beginning to Summer.
There is the joy of having off from school and work.
There is the christening of barbeques all over the United States.
There is the parade, and the carnival and the abundant happiness,
but most of all, there is the intense honor
we all share as we remember and celebrate
the men and women who have served
and continue to serve our country.
What members of your family
have served in the military?
My Uncle Don, Uncle Ray, and Uncle Rich
and best friend David have all served in the army.
I try to say thank you every time I see a man or woman in uniform.
I am deeply thankful for the service they provide.
