They fought for you
Remembering the real reason for Memorial Day.
In memory of my grandfather, LTC (Ret) J Callaway, who fought in WWII.
In memory of my own father, who refuses to be named a Veteran, because though he served, he was not sent to Vietnam like many of his contemporaries.
In memory of the many I’ve known who’ve served, who’ve fought, who’ve sacrificed for me and for you.
This Memorial Day, remember. And when you see the flag pass in the parade, stand. You aren’t standing for a country whose ideals you disagree with. You’re standing in honor of the men and women who fought and died so you could disagree, and still live, free.
Thank you to all who’ve served. God bless our troops.
