Memorial Day

Thanks to all those who have served and their families.

Looking at other countries around the world fighting for their freedom I realize how lucky we are. I am free to go to school, have my own thoughts, express them openly, and make mistakes without being persecuted for them.

Being the sister to a Lieutenant Colonel (ret.) and a Regimental Sargent Major I must agree with your post completely.

I painfully remember all the times my brothers were away on active duty, feeling tense every time the phone rang or news reports of killed/wounded soldiers were broadcast.

Thanks to our Canadian soldiers too. I remember wearing the poppy flowers in school on 11/11

Agreed. We are very fortunate. Many thanks to our fallen soldiers.
