Happy Memorial Day

As many families across the United States get ready to begin a long holiday weekend, it is important that we all thank the many soldiers that have sacrificed to keep the United States of America free and safe.

Many of us have veterans in our families or active soldiers.  Yet there are many incomplete families that have lost loved ones in battle.  Memorial Day is our National Holiday to thank and pay our respects for all that have served our great country.

Despite politicians, our brave soldiers have fought bravely without ever questioning the orders they have received from the President’s office.  And while this post is not about the decisions politicians have made in the past, in regards to war, it does highlight our responsibility to our brave men and women that serve in our Armed Forces.

Those that remain in the United States, as civilians, have a responsibility to hold our elected officials accountable for their actions.  Many soldiers have sacrificed in many ways, including separation from their families.  It is up to us to use our voting power to make sure that politicians always call on our Armed Forces as a last resort.  And when this must be done, it is up to us to make sure that our soldiers are treated with respect and are not called upon to undertake multiple tours in harms way unless it is their choice.  While our soldiers defend us abroad, we must defend their interests here at home.

I have many veterans and soldiers presently in my family.  And for the many other soldiers that are not my family, they are my heroes and command every bit of respect from me as those in my family already receive.

In closing, I simply want to say “thank you” to the many soldiers that have sacrificed for the greater good of our nation.  And I also would like to thank their families for sharing their loved ones with a responsibility that is above ones self.

God bless everyone that reads this post.  And God bless the United States of America!
