Memorial Day 2012

Hope everyone is having a good Memorial Day! 

With all the cookouts, swimming, and family get togethers going on,
please don't forget the reason we have this 3 day weekend! Men and Women have sacrificed themselves for our country, and today is their day! We have freedom because of them, and all they did and still do to keep us safe everyday.

 Remember those brave Men and Women, and how much we owe them! 

Below is a poem inspired by John McCrae's poem In Flander's Fields, and a quote from President Abraham Lincoln.  While enjoying this Monday off work, let's all Remember WHY we are able to enjoy it!!!!

We cherish too, the Poppy red
That grows on fields where valor led,
It seems to signal to the skies
That blood of heroes never dies.
