Memorial Day 2017
For all Americans Monday is Memorial Day.
Please take a moment to reflect on what it must be like for the moms and dads, husbands and wives, children, grand parents, friends, and so on who lost someone servicing our great nation.
The biggest honor I had in my tenure in the Army was being part of the honor guard in Germany. I think Jerrod Myrick and Alex Skinner were detailed out too.
If the military is one thing, it is tradition. The burial detail must go back to the earliest days of our revolution. The uniforms we wear may be different, but the ceremony is the same.
This weekend is for the fallen. Have fun, be safe, and say a prayer of thanks to the countless thousands of soldiers, sailors, airmen, marines, and coast guards, who never came home.
Without them, the world would certainly be different.
