Happy Memorial Day Weekend

HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY

Below is something that was in our hometown newspaper 2 years ago. It was a street survey asking people what Memorial Day means to them. This is my oldest son and his answer. I have blacked out his name because he is such a private person. I won't say more because his statement says so much.

"O say does that star spangled banner still wave?

O'er the land of the free, And the home of the brave!"

Thank God for people of courage who risk their lives for what it true, honorable and right. I've pledged my friendship to the United States of America years ago!

The face and story of a hero who served with honor. May God bless him for his service to our country and for the honor he brings to the uniform.
Blessings ~ Lisa

I know you must be so proud of your son. God bless him and all those that served our country. We are so proud of all of them. We pledge to pray for them and families that lost a love one.
