Have a safe and Happy Memorial Day weekend

I want to remember the sacrifices my fore-fathers made in each of the wars that have been fought to obtain and keep our freedom and protect us .... Thank You, Daddy, Granddad, Great-Grandad and other Great-Grandads back as far as I have traced to before the Revolutionary War .... I also want to thank the men and women of today for the same sacrifices they make on an ongoing basis to keep us free and safe ... Linda
