United States Memorial weekend

posted on 19th of may, 2008

This weekend will be Memorial weekend in the states.
It's a time to remember all of our folks that have served and are now serving in the military.

We all take it for granted what sacrifices they make for us.

The extensive training and the long hours are only magnified by the danger and the long time away from family and loved ones.

They put it all on the line for millions of people they have never met.

They are on call every hour of every day of the year to protect our lives by giving theirs if needed.

Some how saying thanks is just not enough, but most of the time they don't even get that.

Next time you see a person in uniform just walk up to them and say thanks. You can tell by their smile they know exactly what your talking about.

Great thought and great images. I am thankful everyday for the men and women who fight for freedom and liberty, not just for us, but for people they have never met. I am proud to be an American and I am thrilled that my own son has just returned from his second tour of duty in Iraq. God bless our troops.
