For those of you who now carry the torch...I give you my greatest respect, for you are our hope.
May Gods grace, peace, blessings and Heavens greatest rewards be bestowed onto you all....Amen
Might I respectfully note that "happy" memorial day is a bit of an oxymoron.
Let us just give thanks to those that have perished, those that have served and to those that are serving, please be safe.
Whether you are in an anchorage, in your home or in harms way, our best wishes as Americans goes with you.
Please raise a glass of your favorite beverage (if available) and give thanks to those that have gone before us or are now in service
, for we appreciate them in whatever manner they have served or are serving.
