Memorial Day

Amidst the hoopla it is easy to forget what Memorial Day means,

-Unless you have been to enough Memorial Ceremonies that “Taps” brings a tear to your eye.

-Unless you have informed a mother or spouse that “The Secretary of the Army has asked to to express his deep regret…”

-Unless one or more of your brothers or sisters in arms never came home.

-Unless you were handed a folded American flag at your loved one’s funeral.

I try to enjoy the holiday, but I can never forget that Freedom has a price tag, and the cost is very, very high.
