Fly Flags in Remembrance

Monday the 30th of May will be Memorial Day. This day was created to honor Americans and others serving all branches. Memorial Day is a solemn holiday remembering all the men and women who fought and died while serving. We must pay tribute to all and more serving in our armed forces and we must remember the sacrifices they all made and make.

The sacrifices of these men and women are meaningless without recognition and remembrance. Too often we take for granted the freedoms we enjoy and we forget that these freedoms have been paid for with life and blood. By flying the red, white and blue, our great flag of this nation, we protect our priceless heritage. Also remember our prisoners of war and those missing in action. They also have given their love and loyalty to this great country. Let us pause on May 30th to pay tribute to those heroes who came from all walks of life to defend our nation. Let's fly the flag to help us remember and shows respect to our military.

Thanks to all the men and women who put on a uniform everyday to protect our freedom including police and fireman.There would be no freedoms without those willing to fight for them.

God bless the United States of America. Words cannot express my gratitude and thanks to all military personnel and families. Thanks for all the great people, men, women , families & Randy Coleman of Coleman Nursery and several others, good people for helping Veterans.
