Don’t thank me for my service, honor me with a free meal or render special attention my way because it is Memorial Day.
This is a day to honor those who died wearing the uniform of the United States military.
Let that sink in.
Go to a local cemetery search out the names of those lost in or preparing for battle. Read their names, note their age accompanying information when given.
They did not die for country but for the idea that men should be free.
Whether in distant lands or homeland soil they paid the price for me.
No freedom isn’t free.
