To my U.S. friends — as we all enjoy our trip to the beach, those overdone hamburgers and hot dogs, the festivals and parades, and the long weekend with our families, let’s never forget those who have given us the privilege…let’s never forget the true reason and meaning behind Memorial Day. Enjoy your celebrations, but please, remember to honor the dedicated men and women of our military who never made it home.

I posted this same sentiment last year on this day. I can think of nothing stronger or more appropriate to say to those who deserve our utmost respect, so I will simply repeat my heartfelt thanks and hope that it is enough.
Thanks go out to a myriad of family members for their service to this great country of ours…including no less than five uncles (4 of whom were brothers). But a very special thanks go to my Dad and my Brother. I have respect for you both in so many ways, this being just one of them. I love you guys. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for your service.
to family, friends, and ALL who have served — thank you
I hope all of my U.S. friends enjoy their Memorial Day celebrations. Please remember to honor the dedicated men and women of our military who never made it home. Although a simple thank you will never be enough, my family and I are grateful, from the bottom of our hearts, for the service of those lost. I implore you all to keep the military animals in your thoughts as well. So many brave dogs, horses, and other animals have given their service to this country, including laying down their lives alongside their human servicemen and women. Please remember them all this Memorial Day, human and animal alike.
