~ A HUGE thank you to our Veterans & Active Military Personnel ~


The Land of the Free....because of the brave!
Please remember our active military personnel and all of our veterans this weekend.  Fly your flags, send thank you notes, do whatever you can to ensure they know how much their service means to each of us.
They are the true American Idols!

Hi Pat,
Do you know what drives me crazy? When people don't stand up and act respectful when the flag goes by during a parade. We go to the Memorial Day parade, and the Vets. Parade, and all these dummies sit there with their hats on, talking and scratching and acting ignorant, while the symbol of our country is carried past - oh I just can't stand that!! I'm not a nutcase, but just an Air Force brat who is a bit patriotic!
This is a great reminder for the weekend and reason for the day - "memorial" being the key!!
Thanks for posting this,
Have a good weekend!

Yes, we owe so much to our men and women who have served and continue to serve in the military. So many have lost their lives to keep us a country that enjoys much freedoem. May we never forget!

This is a great reminder that this weekend is more than just 3 days off of work and a BBQ. We should never forget.

And please remember those they leave behind. TAPS (www.taps.org) offers resources and hope. They take care of our military's loved ones if something happens.
