What words could ever do justice to the sacrifice that so many have made in our nation? And to the families of those who gave their lives and to those who are presently serving. “Thank you” just doesn’t seem enough, no matter how beautiful all the tributes, presentations, and articles are. We have been so incredibly blessed in this nation and the freedom we experience should never be taken for granted.

As this Memorial Day comes to a close, instead of writing something of my own, I thought it would be more appropriate to share my Dad’s recent blog post, Remember Memorial Day. It was written to honor the memory of my great-Uncle Vernon, (my Grandma’s brother) who was wounded by a direct hit of a mortal shell. On January 7, 1945 in the Battle of the Bulge, he gave the ultimate sacrifice. 

Remember Our Nation’s Heroes.
