It is Memorial Day weekend.
Don’t thank me for my service.
I did not die in the defense of this nation. Yet.
I knew a guy that did.
We remember those that gave all so that we may carry on the fight.
Not that we might coast on their sacrifice.
That we would pick up the torch and continue fighting the forces that would subject us to their power.
This is Memorial Day
It is incumbent on us to honor their sacrifice by picking up the flag and manning the line against the threats to the Republic, both foreign and, most notably, domestic.
