John Mercure: Mercurey Rising

A Memorial Day Thank You

  • Print

One of the most important days of the year is Monday. It's not a day about playing Bocce Ball or grilling out.  It's not about the beach or the shortened work week. It's about remembering the men and women who fight for us.  It's about the brave sailors, soldiers, and airmen who die for our freedom.  It's about the flag. It's about the service.

Both of my grandfathers were in the military.  My paternal grandfather was in the navy during WWII.  My maternal grandfather was a paratrooper in the army.  I am proud of their service.

I am proud of all our veterans. They leave their families, their security, and everything that is important to them to fight for us.

God bless our current military personnel.  They are brave and selfless and honorable.

To all those who serve or have served- Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
