Remember Our Soldiers

Today we honor the men and women of America's Armed Forces, past and present, for this wonderful weekend and the freedom to enjoy it. My father, my brother, my nephew, many friends and myself served our country when called.

When Dad was alive, he and Mother always made this very special day memorable because they always attended Memorial Day services. Dad served during World War II and on this special day, I thought I show you a picture that was taken of him by the Miami Herald.

My Army years were a mix the seriousness of the Vietnam War and serving as a combat medic. The war took the lives of many young men my age and injured even more. The true severity of the war is still being revealed as the veterans age and their injuries take their toll. 

Looking back, I am proud of all the members of my family who served. My prayers are with the men and women of the armed forces.

This weekend, take the time to say a prayer for these valiant warriors. It is because of their efforts that we are able to safely enjoy this weekend.

That's it for now. More soon !

Stay Tuned !
