Happy Memorial Day

We spent the morning in downtown Woodstock at a dedication to a new War Memorial in the city park.  During the national anthem these two cute little kids were standing on the wall around the fountain and holding their hand over their hearts.  Notice the little boy is also saluting.  The two men in the middle photo are standing next to the new war memorial in downtown Woodstock, GA.  Notice how straight and proud these two warriors are standing.  One was at Iwo Jima and the other was also a veteran of WWII.  It was a very moving ceremony and I was amazed at the number of people that showed up to celebrate these brave men and women who fought so we could be free and safe.  And the top photo is why we celebrate Memorial Day!  This brave young man who made the ultimate sacrifice was in Special Forces in Afghanistan.  I salute you and all that served and thank you from the bottom of my heart.  God Bless you all!
