Happy Memorial Day!

 

Patriotic holidays are humbling.

Please take time today to reflect on all who have protected the freedoms of  the citizens of the United States of America.

To those who have served this country, who have been brave, scared, lonely, away from their families, and sacrificed their lives for the United States, thank you.

Thank you.
