I think when you're someone like me, who's never served in the military, it's hard to understand the sacrifice that our soldiers have made, and are making.

God Bless them all...

Memorial Day is a United States federal holiday observed on the last Monday of May (May 31 in 2010). Formerly known as Decoration Day, it commemorates U.S. soldiers who died while in the military service.[1] First enacted to honor Union soldiers of the American Civil War (it is celebrated near the day of reunification after the Civil War), it was expanded after World War I.

If you enjoy your freedom thank a soldier. If you can read this thank a teacher. My son is in the sand box in Special Ops and i wish him well and a safe return. God Bless the military.

Your welcome and proud to have done so.

"A veteran - whether active duty, retired, national guard, or reserve - is someone who, at one point in his or her life, wrote a blank check made payable to The 'United States of America', for an amount of 'up to and including his life.'"

There is a kind of family associated with being in the military or a child of one that is unspoken. God bless all of you who have served and the families as well. I'm an Air Force brat. You have a special place in my heart.

On my run this morning I passed an elderly gentleman who was walking slow with a cane. Passed him and said good morning. Then I turned around and and asked him if he was a veteran. He smiled and said yes. I said 'thank you for your service'. He said he didn't know what was going on this year as last year only one person said thank you. This year has had several already.

Thanks to all your guys and gals out there that sacrificed your lives, limbs, and time spent away from your loved ones to keep us free.

I am a navy brat and did one hitch in uncle sam's peace time army. Nothing really. I want to thank my dad and all of you who put your lives on the line for real for us all.

Thank you and GOD bless you.

I never served, thankfully being saved from 'Nam by Nixon. Many, many thanks to all our veterans: present, past and future.
