Recently, I've been reading letters my father-in-law wrote while serving in the Pacific during WWII. He writes of homesickness and hardship. The years he spent in the Pacific were a huge sacrifice, but luckily he came home when the war ended. Many of our warriors did not.
Our freedom has been bought by the many soldiers who paid the ultimate price. Memorial Day gives us the opportunity to salute those men and women who never made it home. When we fly our beautiful American flag, we honor those who gave their lives for our country. The white reminds us of the purity of truth, the blue of our country’s resolve and justice, and the red of the courage and sacrifice of our warriors.
On Memorial Day, please remember to say a prayer for the soldiers who died serving our country, and for the men and women now serving, that they may come home safely.
