Memorial Day is an American holiday, observed on the last Monday of May, honoring the men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military. I salute, respect and admire these precious, priceless men and women!
I know you have heard it and read it before, but it is an absolute truth that “freedom is not free!” Freedom was never free and it never will be free!
The blood spilled and lives lost of men and women while serving in the U.S. military is almost unfathomable. Their blood was spilled and their lives were lost not only on America’s soil, but all around the world. A huge and tragic price was paid for my freedom and for your freedom.
I love America. I have had the privilege of traveling extensively through virtually every area of America the beautiful. Just as an example, I have visited each and every national archives’ presidential library and museum in America. In fact, I wrote a book after extensively visiting, studying, and photographing each and every one of these presidential libraries and museums. I have also had the privilege to personally take over 250,000 pictures all across America the beautiful.
Regardless of your politics, opinions, challenges, opportunities, and where you and I are in life, I believe that America is the greatest country in the world! And without the men and women who fought and died in our military, we would have no America. The debt we owe these men and women is beyond description or even complete understanding!
We also honor those who were wounded, physically or mentally, as well as each and every man and woman who has ever served in the military of the United States of America. Because of them, you and I have the priceless opportunity to enjoy life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
Thank you, thank you, thank you, to all who have died, been wounded or have served in the military of the United States of America. You have earned, and deserve our deepest appreciation, admiration and respect!
May God bless the life and legacy of each and every man and woman who died, in military or otherwise, in service to the United States of America!
