Memorial Day Weekend: Gratitude for Those Who Serve Our Country
Memorial Day weekend is the start of summer. Amidst the fun activities, take a moment of gratitude for those men and women who currently serve our country, and for those who valiantly lost their lives while fighting for freedom.
My Uncle Stanley died at the age of 18 in a foxhole in one of the last battles at Okinawa. I have visited his gravesite several times at the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific in Hawaii. It's heartbreaking to think how this young man wasn't able to live his life to the fullest. He made the ultimate sacrifice and has made my family proud.
We are grateful to my Uncle Stanley ... and to all in the military for their courage and valor in the name of freedom.
