Thank you to all who have made the ultimate sacrifice in protecting the freedoms we have here in the United States of America.  Freedoms that many on this planet do not enjoy. Freedoms that many take for granted. Memorial Day is not a day of celebration, it is a day of remembrance.  A day that so many will never again have with their families and friends. So while you gather, while you mow your lawn, while you kick off summer with a trip to the beach; just take a moment to say thanks to those who are no longer with us and think of the lives, no linger with us, this day is for.

Rest in Peace Sailor, Soldier, Airman and Marine.
