Remembering the reason for Memorial Day

Today as we celebrate Memorial Day with time at the beach, picnics, barbecue and family get-togethers, lets remember the reason behind the day.

Thank you to all the military service men and women who paid the ultimate price for our safety and freedom.  This country was built on their lives.   Thank you to all the police, firemen and rescue workers
who gave their lives trying to say ours.  Thank you to our everyday heros who in  the act of trying to
help save someone's life, lost theirs.

A personal thank you to my husband, dad and nephew who served in the military.   Thank you to my brother who is a correctional officer (and my sister-in-law who use to be one).   Thank you to my
brother-in-law who is a police officer.   Thank you for all you have done to keep us safe.

Mike and I went to the perfect Memorial Day movie yesterday.   " Battleship  "    It was such a
great patriotic film.  Being retired Navy and on many ship tours, Mike really appreciated the fact
that it was based on that branch of the service.   Keep in mind the it's an alien invasion that they are
fighting but moral of the story is the same.  If you like that kind of movie, this one is fantastic.

Leaving you with a great youtube video honoring our heros.

                                                     Now off to get ready for a cook out.

                                            Be thankful this Memorial Day
