As we grill burgers, smoke brisket and otherwise enjoy a day of relaxation, take a moment and remember those that volunteered themselves to protect this great nation.
They are not mercenaries – the paycheck isn’t the reason the volunteered or why they fight. They are performing their duties as ordered and are appreciated, by “a grateful nation.”
Make this Memorial Day and every day one of service for you. Remember them, honor them, salute them and if you are given the opportunity … thank them – eye to eye.
