Many of you will be starting the Memorial Day weekend on Friday, so I felt it might be appropriate to send an early reminder about what the day really means – not only to those who have served, but to everyone.
Anyone who enjoys a life in this great country owes his freedom to those who have fallen defending it. That’s who Memorial Day honors. The fallen heroes.
I have posted this video before, but Scott, a veteran and contributor to this blog, sent it to me the other day. Even though it isn’t really a Memorial Day tribute, it is so powerful that I am posting it again, because it is a good way to begin the Memorial Day weekend. It speaks to the quality of the men and women who are serving today – not just those who have given their lives, but all of them. And it reminds us of how blessed we truly are.
