Remembering the Fallen

All gave some, Some gave all. Memorial Day is the day set aside to remember those who gave their all so that we can enjoy our freedoms. Please take a moment to remember our fallen service members. There has been a lot of discussion lately about our freedoms, is the government doing too much, are they doing too little, etc. Well remember, if it wasn’t for our fallen service members, we wouldn’t have these freedoms. Let alone be able to even discuss them.

For the past month or so, I have been hooked on watching the HBO mini-series “Band of Brothers” over and over. It is so humbling seeing what these amazing men did for us. It is also motivating. I also discovered a show called “Dick Winters: Hang Tough” – the life of Major Winters of Easy Company and “A Company of Heroes” – the real life Easy Company men telling their own story.

These movies really remind us of what sacrifice is and what heroes truly go through.

I also want to take a minute to thank all the hard workers out there battle COVID-19 so we can sit safe in our homes. And to remember those great warriors, many who were active service members, who fell to this horrible disease.
