As we enter into the weekend known as Memorial Day, let us take pause between the BBQ and the gathering of friends, family and neighbors, to remember what the last Monday in May, is meant to be, a time to honor those who have served and born the battle, those who have given their all, those comrades in arms that have past on. Let us raise our glasses and remember their names. Let us thank them for their service and personal sacrifice.
We honor the service, not of the living, but of the dead.
To those members that join in placing flags at the headstones in the Florida National Cemetery, Bushnell, I, and my fellow military brothers and sisters, thank you for your time in honoring our our countries departed service members.
Below are a few links to remind us all, out what this day is meant to mean.
