Yeah, I woke  up this morning to sunshine and my first thoughts were “can’t wait to hang out by the pool and enjoy some BBQ this THREE-DAY weekend.”

But I’m an American (no hyphen necessary) first, and my thoughts turned to what is important about this weekend to remember, and that is our men and women who have served so proudly, who keep us safe from evil, who have been wounded, and who have given their lives for this great country.

To those of you who have fought for this country, who have had family die for this country, I say “Thank you.”
