“Greater love has no one than this, that one lay down his life for his friends.”
Today we celebrate Memorial Day, we remember the lives of the fallen and on the lesser honor those who are still fighting for the cause. I say on the lesser because this day is truly in honor of those who have fallen, but every service member puts their life on the line so please thank those who make this sacrifice. At the end of the day American’s love this country and some lay their lives on the line. What a wonderful country we live in where its a choice to serve making many of these people’s sacrifice even greater. Only about 1% of American’s answer that call. It’s truly a pleasure to serve along side my brothers and sisters who serve this nation. I love being in the Navy, and look to continue my service. While sometimes we joke with each other, we know there is something greater at stake and its those people back home. We all have something to serve for. We leave home every couple years and take time from our families. Its tough, it messes with your emotion, and it really takes a balance of mind, body, and soul to endure.
I proudly serve this nation because I believe in the values of this nation as a whole, we are truly the land of the free. We have a place for our God in this nation, and we need to keep it that way. We continue to progress as a nation, and people sometimes chose to see the negatives, but I know everyday I serve a GREAT nation.
“Some people spend an entire lifetime wondering if they made a difference in the world. But, service members don’t have that problem.”
Death unfortunately is a part of our service, but to those who made the ultimate sacrifice we salute you today, and everyday because without you we would not be this great nation. We would not be the land of the free.
It’s actually a bit sad to know that many people know what this holiday is about, but simply put it honors our fallen soldiers, sailors, marines, and airman. Those who have laid down their lives for their nation. They laid down their lives for their families, friends, and brothers and sisters alongside them.
Happy Memorial Day, Rest in Peace, and Hooyah, we salute you, you great America WARRIOR!
