Enjoy Memorial Day

Take some time on this Memorial Day to consider some of those who have made the sacrifice for us to spend time with our families.

While some of the major sites would rather sweep Pat Tillman's name under the rug, I am going to make it my sincere effort that it doesn't happen. The funny thing about Pat is that he would not want to be the face of soldiers everywhere. He joined the U.S. Army to be just another soldier, defending his country. But his sacrifice helps illustrate the sacrifice that all soldiers make. Not every (if any) of our current military walked away from a multi-million dollar contract to defend this nation. But they did leave behind family and loved ones. They gave up baseball games, trips to Las Vegas and just hanging out with friends.

So today, please take some time to consider those brave men and women.

Amen. That includes my father, who served in WWII, Korea, Vietnam and is one of a few thousand called the Chosin Few.
