The word “hero,” from Greek, literally means “defender” or “protector.” This month’s blog is dedicated to all of those in The United States Armed Forces who have given their lives for the protection of this nation. The term “hero” is oft overused in modern culture. To those who have given the ultimate sacrifice for this country, you have given new definition to the word hero. You have given up the comforts of civilian life and volunteered to defend us all and paid with your life. “Thank you” does not come close to the gratitude you all deserve.
This Memorial Day, I ask all those who read this to please take a moment to think of your fellow citizens who have died in service to the United States of America. Happy Memorial Day.
