A day to remember

28 May 2012

I love memorial day for so many reasons. It is a beautiful thing to have a day to remember our loved ones and to remember the men and women who have made great sacrifices for this country. Many have made the ultimate sacrifice.  On this special day we thank all persons who serve and have served in the United Forces of the United States of America.
