Many forget the true purpose of Memorial Day and use it to party since it is a 3 day weekend. However, Memorial Day is a day to honor all fallen service men and women that have died to protect this country and our freedom.
My family has been highly involved in the military over the years and it makes me proud knowing they have done so much to protect not only their family and freedom but that of complete strangers across the country. I would like to give a special thank you to both my great grandfathers for their involvement. They were wonderful men and played an important role in my life growing up. They were my heroes and will always be.
As some of you may know, my husband served in Afghanistan for a few years. He is combat USMC veteran now. He has become such an amazing husband and father.
I hope everyone takes a minute today to be grateful for the risks our servicemen put themselves in to protect this great country. And remember the fallen for giving their all.
Happy Memorial Day!!
