Memorial Day

This is the second Memorial Day in which my father in law a World War II veteran will not be here to celebrate it.

He was always proud of his service to this great country of ours. He often talked about his time down in Panama. He never saw Europe, but he was stationed in Panama. And he was injured by a mortar attack. To the day he died, he had sharpnel inside of his head. This sharpnel injured caused him to have severe headaches throughout his life.

As I sit and think of the stories he would tell. I can't help but think of the men and women who serve in our armed forces. These brave men and women have volunteered to fight for the freedom of this country. The freedom that some in Washington, D.C. are so forcefully taking away from us.

When I think of the man who was elected into the presidental office two years, I cringe. Because this man is doing more harm to the freedoms that men like my father in law gave their lives to protect.

Well, this Memorial Day as we celebrate the sacrifice of these brave men and women, let us take one more hard look at the freedom that we enjoy today. Because tomorrow those freedoms may be a thing of the past.

May God Have Mercy on this Country and Her People. Because we are certainly going to need it.

May God Bless All of Our Armed Forces All over this world. Who are fighting to uphold the freedoms that our forefathers bravely fought for.

Happy Memorial Day!

    Many thanks to your father-in-law, and all the other veterans who are no longer with us.
