Happy Memorial Day

I would like to wish all of you a very Happy Memorial Day weekend.

While you're enjoying the long holiday, I hope you take a moment out to honor those who gave their lives in defense of our country. Tell your children or grandchildren that Memorial Day is not just a three day weekend, hot dogs, fun in the sun and a family outing, it is the day set aside to remember those who lost their lives defending our way of life.

Below is a video of John Wayne reciting the history of the song 'Taps'. At the end you will hear a chorus singing 'Taps', a song that many are unaware has words because most of the time we hear it it is being played on a trumpet:

Peace and Prayers to all those serving in the military - May you return home safely to your family and friends.
