From my wife’s ancestors who fought in the Revolutionary War, to those who fought in the Civil War. From my grandfather in Britain in WW1, to my cousins in North Africa in WW2, to my father during the Korean conflict, my father-in-law in Southeast Asia, my uncle and cousins in Vietnam, my brother-in-law in the cold waters of the Cold War, to our neighbors and friends who have served in Afghanistan and Iraq.
We remember your sacrifice. We give thanks for your safety. We remember that Memorial Day is not an abstract idea, but a time to remember the real men and women, our FAMILY, who have given some or all of their lives for love of country. Thank you.
