This being Memorial Day, I want to thank all of our armed forces for being on watch to protect our way of life. The sacrifices that these men and women make to defend democracy make them heroes.
I especially want to thank my father who fought in World War II flying over Europe in the Army Air Force. He never talked about his experiences in the war other than he was a gunner. If you were still with us, I would give you a hug and say "Thanks".
This image is from the American Cemetery in Normandy, France, site of D-Day. It is a place for reflection of the ultimate sacrifice of our Armed Forces and every American who travels to France should visit.
