In loving memory
Today is Veteran's Day, a day of reflection and remembrance for all of those who have served our country since the Revolutionary War. This year, we lost a nephew to a roadside bomb in Iraq. He was honored for his service with a Bronze Star, Purple Heart and Order of the Golden Spurs. However, this is small recompense for the level of sacrifice. He will be missed and never forgotten. There can never be enough said or done to honor our service men and women in my mind. Freedom does require responsibility, duty and honor and our military personifies this in full measure. As my father would have said, "Semper Fi!" As Americans, we should always be faithful to their memories.
