Our fallen servicemen and women have my utmost respect and gratitude. My uncle died in WW II so I never met him. My family has proudly served in the US Navy for three generations. God Bless all our military and their families.

For those who have posted fallen loved ones I would like to say thank you to all of them for their service AND THANK YOU TO EVERYONE FAMILY MEMBER AND LOVED ONE WHO PAID THE ULTIMATE SACRIFICE by sending your dear one off to war only to have them returned home in a casket. The men and women served honorably but the sacrifices belong to the families left behind to carry on. Have you got U.S. Army I served my country what did you do shirt? Please know we all are grateful to you and yours. Much love to you on this Memorial Day. With sincerity from an Army wife.
My son served in Army 11B infantry. I will forever be grateful that he came back to us from war in Afghanistan. I sent the Army an amazing kid who’s only goal was to help those in need. They sent me back a broken man with severe PTSD from what he went thru. Still struggling 6 years later. We do NOT (as a country) do enough to support the mental health of our veterans. Thank you to all that gave the ultimate sacrifice for our country. And bless the families that are left behind. Thank you for helping us really remember the sacrifices that have been made and will be made, which has allowed us to live free. These stories are so touching. Thank you to the men and women who out their lives in the line.
