Memorial Day Post

So sorry for the delay between posts.  I was on vacation.  In any event, I would like to offer a heartfelt thank you to the men and women of our armed services.  We have asked much of you.  We've asked you to kill and to die far away from your families.  To add to this heavy burden, we've asked you to be ambassadors for us to the civilians around you, to display all of our best qualities amidst the horrors of war.  

Somehow, every day thousands of you manage to fulfill the monumental task set before you.  The truth is that I can only speculate about what a soldier's life is really like, and despite my best effort, this post is surely an inadequate description of the difficulties thereof.  With that said, I am grateful.

Thank you all.  My prayers are with you.
