Memorial Day

“Let no neglect, no ravages of time, testify to the present or to the coming generations that we have forgotten as a people the cost of a free and undivided republic.” - General Orders No.11, Grand Army of the Republic Headquarters, May 5, 1868

"Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends." John 15:13

While we are enjoying a day off, grilling out, and a cold beer, let us all take a moment to remember those who sacrificed so that we can enjoy this day in peace.
