Memorial Day - Remember

THE REASON FOR THIS HOLIDAY
Many of us will be "celebrating" this long holiday weekend with picnics and other family outings.  As you go about your weekend I hope you will join me in pausing to remember the real significance of this holiday, HERE.

UNDERSTANDING THE SACRIFICE
Monday we recognize those millions of men and women who have given their lives in defense of this country.  Those of us who have proudly served this country in the military have a pretty good understanding of the sacrifice it takes.  The families of those men and women, like Costa Mesan Jose Garibay, who lost their lives during military service have the REAL understanding, though.

A TIME FOR REFLECTION
Each year I write about this holiday.  HERE is what I wrote last year.  Take a moment to re-visit that entry, and listen to the video clip at the end.

THIS YEAR...
This year please take a couple moments to watch this current clip and recognize the brave men and women who so proudly served this country and gave the ultimate sacrifice.
