Regardless of how a person about the war in Iraq and the war on terrorism in Afghanistan (and many other wars around the wars around the world, on this day, we need to show some respect to those who have fought for our country.
They are usually called our “fallen heroes.”
Since I didn’t know anyone personal who lost their life on the battlefield, Memorial Day has always been a day for picnics and getting some off. But this year, it is a bit different with the passing of one of our members in his tour of duty in Iraq.
I am still amazed at the number of people who have lost their lives throughout the United States’ history. But all the freedom and all the privileges we have in this country is partly the result of the sacrifices that were made by people in the armed forces.
We honor them today.
