Happy Memorial Day!



It is the VETERAN, not the preacher,
who has given us freedom of religion.

It is the VETERAN, not the reporter,
who has given us freedom of the press.

It is the VETERAN, not the poet,
who has given us freedom of speech.

It is the VETERAN, not the campus organizer,
who has given us freedom to assemble.

It is the VETERAN, not the lawyer,
who has given us the right to a fair trial.

It is the VETERAN, not the politician,
Who has given us the right to vote.



It is the VETERAN,
who salutes the Flag,



It is the veteran,
who serves under the Flag,



DEAR HEAVENLY FATHER, PLEASE GRANT THEM ETERNAL REST AND LET PERPETUAL LIGHT SHINE UPON THEM.

Thank you to all those who have served to protect us. I would like to personally thank the following...


My Dad, US Army
My Uncle Dale, US Army
My cousin Dennis, US Marine Corp
My Grandpa Menear, US Navy
My Uncle Jr, US Army
My Uncle Pat, US Army
My Uncle Jerry, US Army
My Uncle Mike, US National Guard
My Dad's Cousin John Richard, US National Guard
All of the men and women that I served with while in the US NAVY!
Plus countless others in the my family who have served for generations back
