Memorial Day

On this Memorial Day we want to thank all the men and women who have served their country, in years past, as my father did during the Korean War,

and at the present time, such as my nephew,

who returned from Iraq within the past few weeks.
We want to remember our family members who have gone ahead of us and who will always be in our hearts.

We want to remember our country, especially in our prayers, and take pride in the "red, white, and blue",
and we especially want to remember those who have made the ultimate sacrifice in giving their lives for our freedom.
Our fathers' God to Thee,
Author of liberty,
To thee we sing,
Long may our land be bright
With freedom's holy light,
Protect us by thy might
Great God, our King.

by: Samuel F. Smith
3rd verse of My Country tis of Thee
