Memorial Day

Memorial Day is a day to remember the men and women that have died fighting for our country.

I wish I would have gotten to know either of my grand-fathers better. Both of them died before I got a chance to really know them. My paternal grand-father was in the Navy, I believe, and fought in World War 2. He died when I was very young and I have a few memories of him but not much. My maternal grand-father died when I was a freshmen in college. I regret not making it to his funeral. He also fought in World War 2. When I was little he would tell my brother and I small stories about the war. I wish I would have been able to spend more time with both of them.

I remember the first time I got a call letting me know that a friend of mine had died while in Afghanistan. It was the summer after my first year of college. We had just spent some time together a few weeks before I got the call. The men and women of our armed forces lay down their lives every day for us to have all the rights we exercise every day.

I just want to say thank you to all the men and women that are serving or have served our great nation.
