The Home of the Brave


To all those who have served our nation with honor, we salute you. 

For some history on Memorial Day, the History Channel website has some great information.  There is so much more that I could say here, so much more that seems to need saying, but every time I think about the sacrifices made by those in uniform (and those not in uniform but serving our nation proudly in other ways) and their families and friends, it just rings hollow.  So thank you for all that you do, for all that you sacrifice, for all those who have come before us in service to this country so that we can remain free.
