Memorial Day Weekend

In 1968 and ’69, it was my privilege to serve my country in the U.S. Army. I know that many of the young men I trained with in basic training went directly into the Vietnam War. Many gave their lives in that conflict. Even though I was drafted for only two years, I was proud to serve.

I hope everyone has a safe Memorial Day, and that we all pay tribute to those who gave the ultimate sacrifice for our country.

You and I are the fortunate ones who now enjoy our freedom, because of those who gave their lives throughout the history of The United States of America.
