Let Us Be Forever Grateful... and Forever Vigilant

Wherever you may be this Memorial Day, please take some time to remember what this holiday is all about...

From Wikipedia:

Memorial Day is a United States federal holiday that is observed on the last Monday of May.... It was formerly known as Decoration Day. This holiday commemorates U.S. men and women who died in military service for their country. It began first to honor Union soldiers who died during the American Civil War. After World War I, it expanded to include those who died in any war or military action.

(Emphasis mine.)

May God bless all of those who have served, particularly those who gave their lives so that we may be free and may he bless and comfort all of the loved ones they left behind to grieve. And may God forever bless the United States of America.
