When you are having your barbecue at the lake or campsite this weekend, you probably will not think about the meaning of Memorial Day. You wont be thinking about what our US military has sacrificed for your freedom.
But it's okay. That means our public servants are doing their jobs so well that you need not worry about your safety. But for the heck of it, thank someone in the military, a police officer, or a fire fighter. They worry about your safety so you don't have to.
Thank you Arley, Dave, Kyle, Jason, Shannon, Ric and Erik for your current service.
Thank you Dan B., Dan H., Warren, Vance, Doug, Sarah, Cindy, John, Dennis, Alice and Lloyd for your past service.
Thank you soldiers.
Thank you God.
When people say, "I support the troops but I don't support the war." It's like saying to your wife, "I love you but I don't like the way you cook/clean/raise the kids, etc." Give them your true support.
