It is Memorial Day, a day to remember those who served our country to protect us all, to protect our freedoms. I am fortunate enough to live in an area that has all branches of the military represented on some level. We have the largest Naval base, an two army posts, and air force base and a Coast Guard training center. I have several neighbors and family members who served in the military. I am also very very lucky that they all have come home safely and those that passed, passed in peaceful situations. I'd like to take a moment to thank our service members currently protecting us and to remember those who served in the past:
Edward Flora - U.S. Navy (Vietnam Era)
Richard Carter Morgan - U.S. Army (WWII)Purple Heart
Edward Lufsey - U.S. Army (WWII)
All three men are deceased
My neighbor James Robinson -U.S. Army, currently serving.
If you know a service member don't forget to thank them today.
