Memorial Day- We Remember

We remember that not all returned from “that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion.”

We remember…

Many of the people in our industry have served in the armed forces.

Some of our companies have employees on active duty.

Some of us have family serving.

You may have sung the Star Spangled Banner a thousand times. You may have heard it 10,000 times.

But you hear it  with your whole body  when it is  your daughter or son that is deployed.

This Memorial Day, we  will remember.

We are not at war.

Our politicians are not at war.

Some of our employees,  some of our sons and daughters are at war.

This Memorial Day, we  will remember.

We will show we are grateful for their service.

This memorial day we hope that you remember too:

“…that these dead shall not have died in vain, that this nation under God shall have a new birth of freedom, and that government of the people, by the people, for the people shall not perish from the earth.”

Excerpts from Abraham Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address

    In addition to remembering on this Memorial Day those we love who are serving or have served, let’s also remember those sophists in government who “remember” those same service men and women at this time of year because it is an expedient for them on their hoped for path to election/reelection. Their insincerity is palpable.

    Miles- We know of your sacrifice having your daughter Emma and her husband both currently serving in Afghanistan. We pray for their safety and success in their mission and for all the soldiers who serve with them.
