Memorial Day


Tomorrow, we honor the American service men and women who have given their lives in defense of freedom and liberty, here and abroad.

"Today, the United States stands as a beacon of liberty and democratic strength before the community of nations. We are resolved to stand firm against those who would destroy the freedoms we cherish. We are determined to achieve an enduring peace -- a peace with liberty and with honor. This determination, this resolve, is the highest tribute we can pay to the many who have fallen in the service of our Nation."

~~ President Ronald Reagan, Memorial Day 1981




"Only 2 defining forces have ever offered to die for you…. Jesus Christ and the American Soldier. One died for your soul, the other for your freedom."

~~ Lt. Col. Grant L. Rosensteel, Jr., USAF


To our fallen heroes, I offer my heartfelt thanks.

It is nice to know that you commemorate and give tribute to those who fought for our country and countrymen. We should really give thanks to those who died for us. If they didn't do it, I am sure we aren't here at all. Thanks to them!
