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 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.
