A Simple Memorial Day Thank You

This past year has been a difficult one for both my husband and myself as he defended our country on his second tour to Afghanistan from mid-2010 – early 2011. I can honestly say that our lives have been changed forever, probably more so his than mine.

As we were filling our calendar this week with Memorial Day plans, it hit me that I had avoided reflecting on the true meaning of Memorial Day. I wanted to take this opportunity to thank all the troops, families, friends, non-profits and companies who support our brave men and women, and recognize those who have made the ultimate sacrifice.

In memory of my husband’s friends, we will never forget their courage and dedication to our country:
