Memorial Day 2013

Armed Forces Day, the third Saturday in May, is a day we celebrate and thank all those who served or who are serving in our military.

Veterans Day, the 11th day of November, is when we honor those who served or who are serving in combat.

Memorial Day, the last Monday in May, is a day to honor those who have fallen in the service of our country - our war dead.

It is a day of reverence and respect rather than one of celebration.

"Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends." 
(John 15:13)

Please take time today to honor the men and women who have given their lives so that we may live in peace and freedom.  May God bless our fallen veterans and comfort their families.  We will never forget you!

With great respect,
Zim, Dave, Cam, and our bipeds
