Happy Memorial Day!

My great thanks to all of the veterans past and present that have given their all to make the United States the country that it is today. It's not perfect by any means, and it most certainly has challenging days ahead, but the fact that we have the ability to live the lives that we do today and the fact that we are all able to continue in our quest of "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness" is owed to those brave men and women who gave their all on various battlefields to safeguard those rights for us.

Thank you to all who have made the ultimate sacrifice and to those people who are family and descendants of those men and women. I am grateful to you!
