Happy Memorial Day!


Today is a day to celebrate and remember all the men and women who have given their everything to serve the United States. I’ve been blessed that most of the military people I care about have made it through Hell and back in one piece, but it’s important to never forget those who made the ultimate sacrifice for this country. Thank you to all who have served. God bless.

I’m going to keep this brief, since Memorial Day generally has different meanings to different people. Memorial Day has a long history for me because of my involvement in Momence Honor Guard, as well as the fact that my second-oldest brother is on career in the U.S. Navy (SeaBees). Two of my best friends are in the military, as well as some other folks that I’ve known and cared about for a long time. I can never thank them enough for the sacrifices they’ve made.

So, seeing has Memorial Day is a big deal for me, I was more than a little moved when I saw this. Check it out. Mike Haley shared it yesterday. Seriously, go look. It’s completely worth your while, and over 1,000 other people agree.

I should go. In addition to it being Memorial Day, it’s also my 20th birthday. Family plans and a busy day call.
