Well said BillyK!

I had 4 uncles who served in WWII, 2wounded, 1 killed (in a submarine) and 3 awarded medals. My brother was also one who "gave all" in 1959 (naval aviator), so Memorial Day obviously has deep meaningto my family. Everyone have a great holiday, but please take time to remember those who have put it ALL on the line, and made the ultimate sacrifice for the rest of us.
