Today, I am grateful to all who have given their all in service to the United States of America. This Memorial Day, please remember those who have died in service. Our family particularly remembers George's great uncle George Paloranta, who died fighting in the Philippines in World War II. Also, please remember that while we often count war dead, every year a number of soldiers, sailors, airmen, and marines die in training accidents. What these men and women do is not only dangerous during war...it's dangerous in training. Paratroopers chutes don't open, guns misfire, planes crash. Let us remember all who made the ultimate sacrifice for our flag.
Today, I am grateful for freedom, for faith, and for family that honors service.
Today, I am grateful for friends who are kind.
What are you grateful for today?
