Memorial Day 2015

          My dad (T-L) and his pals - Camp Stewart Georgia 1941

On this Memorial Day, we pause to reflect upon our blessings as a nation and the high cost of those blessings, for the freedom we enjoy in this country, for opportunities to flourish, and for the security of our land, for those who have served in the armed services of our country, risking their lives for our liberty, for those who have given their lives in service to our country, sacrificing in such a costly way for the sake of others, for those who have given their lives, as did Robert "Midge" Kennedy (above bottom-right), so that those who live in other countries might experience freedom from tyranny......

and for a day set apart, not just for celebration, but also for solemn remembrance, as we consider the sacrifices of so many in our military.
