Today, in the U.S., we celebrate the people who serve and protect our country. Some say: “Happy memorial day,” but it is not. It is an occasion to reflect on those that have passed and those that still stand guard. It is a day to honor those left at home who also sacrifice and serve even if they are not in uniform. It is a day to reach out to those that served and need some help. It is a day of reflection of our past and dedication to the future.
It is a hope and a dream that one day we can say thank you all, your job is done.
To all those serving, I thank you. To all those that have served, I thank you. To the husbands, wives and children holding down the home front, I thank you. To those that struggle from their service, I want to give you hope that it will get better.
Fair winds and following seas.
