If there happens to be any US military veterans or active duty folks that read my blog, I want to take this time to say a quick thank you to all of you. Just recently my grandfather passed away. He was a veteran of the US Army Air Corp during World War II. It was the first time I had ever been to a military funeral and I have to admit, it was very moving, especially when the honor guard fired their rifles and then Taps was played.

Driving through Leavenworth National Cemetery will leave any patriotic American moved to see all the graves of those that have served our country. So, please, on this Memorial Day Weekend, take a moment and say a prayer for our troops, take a moment of silence, or do something to honor those that have given their lives so that we can live the way we do.
