Memorial Day 2008

and please remember all those today who have served and are serving to keep us the land of the free and the home of the brave.

My children will have the honor today of being at the local Memorial Day service with their 89-year-old grandfather who fought in World War II at Normandy and will go to the cemetary afterwards to honor their great uncle who died in that same war as well as their great grandfather who fought in World War I.

Today I will remember my grandfather as well as honor my son who recently, at the inspiration of his grandfather and great uncle, commissioned as a 2nd Lieutenant in the United States Army.

God Bless You.
