Remembering Our Fallen Brothers

IMG_19121While it doesn’t matter how you remember, just take the time to remember those who have sacrificed their freedom for yours, your family, your children and their children. The world is a better place because of these heroes.

My husband, a United States Marine Corps infantry major, shared a few words about what Memorial Day means to him.

Memorial Day is a day to remember all of those who gave their lives for their country. It does not matter who or in which conflict they fought, but to reflect on those who believed enough in America to stand up for their country and pay the ultimate sacrifice.

It is also an emotional day for those of us who have lost loved ones or friends or teammates in recent conflicts; a day to remember the fallen brothers, a day to try and gain closure, and a day to be grateful.

In memory of all those who gave their lives and to my husband’s friends, we will never forget your courage and dedication to our country:
