This is my second posting today, but as a military veteran, I would be remiss in my duties if I did not honor our veterans and war dead on Memorial Day. You may have heard the saying that "some gave all, but all gave some." It is a great honor to serve this amazing country, and all those who have served, securing the blessings of Liberty, whether they gave some, whether they gave all, or whether they gave what Abraham Lincoln called the "last full measure of devotion," every contribution is honorable and worthy of celebration. I am honored to have served this country for 23 active duty years and to have served a combat tour in Iraq. I still bear the psychological and emotional scars from my service and probably will until I go to meet My Glorious Savior for my final reward. I thank all my brothers and sisters in arms who have contributed to the defense of liberty for our great country, past and present. You should stand proud today and be blessed that you answered the call to serve your country. May God bless America!
