Memorial Day 2012

It's not about the barbecues ... It's not about the sales ... It's not about the 3-day weekend...

On Armed Forces Day, we honor those who have served or who are serving in our military.  On Veterans Day, we honor those who served or who are serving in combat.  And today, on Memorial Day, we honor our war dead.

Please join us in honoring those who gave the last full measure to our country with a moment of silence.

We thank God for these men and women, for these heroes.  May He bless their souls.

  4. This is what our morning devotion was about. Honoring, remembering and being very thankful for the men, woman, and service dogs who gave it all.

  13. Great post - thanks. Wish people would stop saying "Happy" Memorial Day. It's a pet peeve of mine (and I suspect many others.) Probably stems from the whole beginning of summer, 3 day weekend mindset that you spoke of...
