All we have of freedom, all we use or know –
This our fathers bought for us long and long ago.
~Rudyard Kipling, The Old Issue, 1899

Today we remember all those who gave their lives in serving our country, fighting for the freedoms we can’t possibly appreciate unless we’ve had them revoked.

A chance to thank our veterans and our active servicemen and women. A chance to thank their families.  You don’t get rich being in the armed services and the sacrifice to our country is a domino affect.

Parades.  BBQs. Decorating of the headstones and graves of fallen soldiers.  Take a minute today and give thanks.  Remember.  Memorial Day.
