Memorial Day is a time of celebration, relaxation, and the kickoff of Summer! While many people are enjoying BBQ, refreshments, and games; there are hundreds of thousands who are currently fighting on the front lines to keep our rights, our country, and our safety in place. Regardless of political rhetoric, who happens to sit in a particular office, or what your political leanings are; now is the time to thank the brave men and women who will step in front of a bullet for you or I.
Would you march with 100 lbs of gear over a frozen mountain, a broiling desert, or a stormy sea just to protect someone whom you have not met? Regardless of your position or feelings on the military or the wars going on right now, there is a hero fighting for your right to disagree or agree about anything and maintain the right to say what you wish about it.
Take a moment this weekend to not only thank the veterans who have fought or are currently fighting for our freedoms, but also think of those who have made the ultimate sacrifice in defending us.
