The Morning After – May 28, 2012 Memorial Day edition

Good Morning and Happy Memorial Day!

It is a special day for all my friends in the United States. A time to celebrate, remember and respect those who have worn the uniform with pride, dignity and honor. A day to express your admiration, love and devotion. Remember that when you enjoy the weekend.

    Let us also remember those fighting now. My brother shipped out last night for another tour of duty.

    And don’t forget all of the civilians and contractors that are also out there and have served there…many have been KIA/WIA/MIA. They may not be doing as risky of a job as the soldiers, but they’re also risking their lives for the same cause.

    Best wishes to your brother Dave.
