Memorial Day

If you had the day off today, I certainly hope you took time to say a prayer for a soldier who worked today protecting your freedom to enjoy your day off. If you worked today, I hope you also took time to pray for a soldier who worked today protecting your freedom to work.

If you have never witnessed The Changing of The Guards at Arlington National Cemetery, please take a moment to do so now.

  1. Great post and thank you for serving.

  2. Sadly, and much to my chagrin, I had enough things on my mind and a problem with the computer to completely forget about posting on my own blog about Memorial Day.If I remember correctly, my grandfather served during WWI but didn't get to Europe before the war ended.WWII saw several of my uncles serving in the Navy. Boy, did they razz me when I joined the Army in the '60's.I will add my thanks to you, Jerry, for your service.
