Memorial Day was supposed to be a time for remembering those who had fallen in American Wars. It’s easy to list the chapters in American history, but not easy to list all the places where Americans have given their lives in “conflicts other than war” (places and events like the Beruit barracks bombing, Khobar Towers, and of course the U.S.S. Cole). I submit that since this nation is at war, right now, it’s as important or more important to offer our support for those who are serving and thank them for their efforts.
Specific and first of the day thanks go to Chris and Curt. Thank you guys for your service present and past.
And thanks to all the veterans of the past and present. Thank you for your service, your efforts, and the benefits we’ve got because of what you’ve done and are doing.
