Memorial Day 2008

Memory Park

Here in the United States, we set aside the last Monday of May in honor of U.S. men and women who lost their lives in military service.

While I don't have any close family who have died in military service, I do have a number who have served and sacrificed to help keep us free. I want to thank them now: Grandpa Pebley, Uncle Joe, step-dad Joe, father-in-law Erv and my wife Diane. Additionally, I have three brothers in active duty: Andy, Chris and Jeff. Two are deployed and in harms way. Thanks for your service guys; our thoughts and prayers are with you and your families.
