Many people are very free with their opinions about war, about whether or not we should fight this war or that, about where and how the military should be deployed or brought home. In some countries, freely expressing these opinions could land you in jail or worse. In America our right to express them is protected by the highest law in our land. In America, men and women have given their lives defending that right.
Regardless of whether we support a particular war, we should always support the men and women who serve in our military.
Memorial Day is about honoring the fallen, giving thanks to all who have served and who are serving. It is about supporting the men and women who day after day put their lives on the line so that you and I can be free.
To all our veterans…the ones who came home and the ones who didn’t…our debt to you is deep. Know that we remember you, we thank you, and we ask the good Lord to reward you for your faithful service to the United States of America.
