Happy Memorial Day - Thank You

Today is not just a day to pull out the grill and hit the beach or have a day off school or work. It's a day to remember the fallen soldiers who served our country. We give honor and pay our respects to all the men and women who gave their lives fighting for the freedom of our fellow U.S. citizens, and others all around the world.

Being a former military "brat" (USMC, ooo rah), I would also like to pay my respects to the families of these fallen soldiers, and say Thank You for supporting your loved ones when they make the decision to protect and defend the rest of us. Were it not for strong military families all around the world it would be even more difficult for our loved ones to go and put their lives on the line. Thanks for your support!

Happy Memorial Day!

Be Blessed
