Memorial Day Tribute

I spent 23 years in the military working side by side with some of the finest America has to offer.  These men and women were and are my brothers and sisters and it was indeed my honor to know such people.  These remarkable Americans don’t sign up for riches or fame.  They give themselves to a higher calling to serve; a calling that demands deep sacrifices, steadfast commitment, and unwavering professionalism.  They are the guardians of our freedom and the defenders of our constitution.  The freedom we enjoy every day is because they stand ready to trade their lives in order to preserve freedom and liberty in America.  Today is the day we honor those who paid the ultimate price so that we may live free.  I found an older tribute on Youtube that I think captures the spirit of the day.  Please follow this link>> Memorial Day Tribute

The next time they ask us to trade our liberties for security, remember those who were willing to die to defend those same liberties we so easily trade away.

Have a great Memorial Day.

Liberty forever, freedom for all!

    John, in case you did not know, the video embed has been disable. Thank you so much for your long service to our country. More than ever today, it is imperative that our children understand what Memorial Day represents. So few have even a clue.
