Happy Memorial Day, Son
Until Memorial Day 2008, the day meant little to me other than a long weekend.
Now, I understand it is a national holiday designated for honoring all of those brave men and women who have given all for the citizens of the United States.
I hope you have a marvelous, long weekend.
I also hope you will take time to remember the hundreds of thousands of men and women who have given their lives so that we can go to the lake. Cookout with our friends and families. Worship freely. Protest and speak freely.
Pete, thanks for protecting us. Thanks for giving all.
You and the thousands before you are not forgotten.
