Memorial Day 2021

Memorial Day (previously, but now seldom, called Decoration  Day) is a federal holiday in the United States for honoring and mourning the military personnel who have died in the performance of their military duties while serving in the United States Armed Forces. The holiday is observed on the last Monday of May. The holiday was formerly observed on May 30 from 1868 to 1970.. (information copied from Wikipedia)

This is the day to remember those who paid the ultimate price with their lives, they served no matter the cost.

Every year I share something from my heart about this very important day. As a Veteran myself I can not put into words the feelings that I have about this day. The loss of a fellow Military Brother or Sister regardless of the branch is devastating to us as Veterans and of course their families. Yes, it’s true many of us volunteered to serve but there are also many who were drafted and fought in wars that they never returned home from. They paid the ultimate price, the loss of their lives.

There is a powerful saying:

“Only two defining forces have ever offered to die for you; Jesus Christ and the American G.I. One dies for your soul; the other for your freedom.”

So today I leave you with this, For the Mothers, Fathers, Sisters, Brothers, Sons, Daughters, Uncles, Aunts, Grandparents, Family members, and Friends of the loved ones who lost their lives through the years while serving in the Military, we extend a hug and love to you while you take this time to remember your loved ones.
