Memorial Day 2013

Posted by John Nixon

During the weekend let’s pause to remember what the Memorial Day holiday is all about.

With the war in Afghanistan still ongoing, we still receive news reports of U.S. service members killed in action. Fortunately these reports are now less frequent. However it should be a constant reminder to us all that there are Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines in harm’s way every day.

Some make the ultimate sacrifice to protect our freedoms. And many thousands have gone before them to ensure that our way of life is not infringed upon by those who find our culture and freedoms repellent.

So please enjoy the weekend. Go to a parade. Enjoy a cookout.

But also join me in remembering all of these brave service members who have laid down their lives for us. We owe it to them never to forget.

Happy Memorial Day.

Semper Fidelis
