Remembering Fallen Heroes

Remembering Fallen Heroes

“These fallen heroes represent the character of a nation who has a long history of patriotism and honor- and a nation who has fought many battles to keep our country free from threats of terror”. Michael Castle

As we enter Memorial Day weekend I am hearing lots of excitement about barbeques and the unofficial time of summer kicking off. For me Memorial Day has a different meaning. It reminds me of the time I served in Iraq and the things I experienced. It reminds me of fellow brothers and sisters that did not come back home with me. They gave their ultimate sacrifice for their country. Memorial Day is a reminder to be thankful to those who gave their life, served, and are still serving to keep us safe here at home. I am thankful that I made it back alive, and I will never forget those who didn’t make it home with me. This Memorial Day take a moment and reflect on the brave sacrifices of those who gave their life for this great nation because remembering fallen heroes is what Memorial Day is really about.
