  This comes from my sister and it is the way we were brought up..Some do not recognize the contributions to freedom that our military made but my father made sure that we had an appreciation for our freedoms.  Many times our veterans are over looked, under appreciated or just ignored.  The contributions of these individuals to  our way of live is immeasurable and the toll in human life and suffering can not be calculated with any formula but in the love that their families have for them.  Remember that each of us who is serving or has ever served is someones brother, father, husband, daughter, sister or Mother...   We need to be grateful for their service each and every day of the year. 
What my sister nor this poem does not say is that we did not do it for the thanks..but for the love of country and family.
I hope each of you had a happy and safe Memorial Day..

Mark, Jim, Larry, and Rick,
I know you probably have received the attachment before (or recently) -- but I wanted to add my 'two cents' to it -- so I hope you won't mind getting it again.
Thank all four of you for voluntarily putting yourself in harms way to defend and protect our people and our rights as Americans.  The people in this country owe you, and others like you, a lot.  You may not be given that recognition often or by everyone... but then again, that is not why each of you gave years of your life.  It was a commitment you made, it was who you are, and for those two things--I thank you.
p.s. To those of you who receive a "c.c."  of this email -- You have a special person in your midst.


Good subject to remember on Memorial Day and all year through


----- Keep it moving, please, even if you've seen it before.

It is the
not the preacher,
who has given us freedom of religion.

It is the


not the reporter,
who has given us freedom of the press.

It is the


not the poet,
who has given us freedom of speech.

It is the
not the campus organizer,
who has given us freedom to assemble.


It is the

not the lawyer,
who has given us the right to a fair trial.

It is  the

not the politician,

Who has given us the right to vote.

It is the
salutes the Flag,

It is


who serves
under the Flag,

I'd be EXTREMELY proud if this email reached as many as possible. We can be very proud of our young men and women in the service no matter where they serve.

God Bless them all!!!
