Remember the fallen…


We have the privilege of enjoying our Christmas and New Year holiday relatively conflict free.  Whether or not you believe in the validity of the last few wars that the United States has fought in, I believe we can all recognize that we enjoy our holidays with a certain amount of peace and security because of the sacrifice made by men and women of the military who have come before, are serving now, and will serve in the future.

I hope that they return alive and uninjured, but that just isn’t realistic.  It is my duty to remember those who didn’t return alive and to do what I can to raise my children in a way that honors the past and facilitates a positive future.

Cothran, Mayorga, Winslow, Heflin, Shea: I’m on duty, your legacy is safe with me.
