HONOR OUR TROOPS THIS MEMORIAL DAY BY SUPPORTING OUR MEN AND WOMEN IN AFGHANISTAN!
Happy Memorial Day.
Today we remember the millions of Americans throughout history who have sacrificed their lives to fight for freedom, liberty and the American way. Whether it was in World War II, or Afghanistan, we must never forget to honor those who fell in the line of duty to protect us back home.
With summer slowly creeping in, many use this three-day weekend as an opportunity to enjoy the luxuries that surround us. Are you participating in a Memorial Day parade or ceremony? Maybe you are gathering with friends and family for a day at the beach or making hamburgers on the grill.
The warm sun and extra time away from work could make it easy to forget what this day represents. Since the creation of our great nation, men and women have laid down their lives in order to protect us – for that we should be forever indebted. We can’t forget that Memorial Day is about honoring those men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice.
We have over 18,000 troops serving in Iraq (5,000) Afghanistan (13,000) and Syria (500), waiting for care packages from home to remind them?? of what they’re fighting for and why they are making such enormous sacrifices.
The deployment of a family member or friend is a trying time for anyone – they will often tell you that one have the happiest days of their life is when their soldier walks through the airport doors, returning from a long deployment abroad. It is usually a deeply emotional reunion in which the unspoken sacrifices that have been made are released.
Memorial Day honors those soldiers that were unable to experience that reunion – the fallen heroes that sacrificed everything in defense of our nation.??????
Make sure to take some time and honor the sacrifice of these heroes. CLICK HERE TO SEND A CARE PACKAGE to the troops who are still in harm’s way – the ones who are carrying on where their fellow troops left off.
