It's not just a day to catch up on getting the lawn mowed, throwing something on the grill, and cracking open a cold watermelon. It's a day of honor and remembrance.
Thank you to all veterans and those in active service for putting your lives on the line for us, the citizens of the United States.
Thank you to all the families who have lost their loved ones who died in that service. And also to those who are permanently disabled as a result.
My husband nearly died, and he has permanent disabilities from his time of service. Many men and women he served with, and other family members of his who served, lost their lives. Live in this country long enough, and no family goes untouched.
Thank you for serving at such great cost.
This Memorial Day, our household remembers those who paid the highest price.
