Memorial day

First I just want to send out my condolence to the family of a shipmate Scott Allen Moore passed away on Thursday May 19. Scott was a great guy I served on the USS Cavalla with him.

Now here it is Memorial day weekend, the unofficial first day of summer. But, anyone who has lost a family member to a military conflict understands, Memorial Day is much more than a time to break out the barbecue or open the pool. Please enjoy the festivities, the races and baseball games but take a moment to remember the fallen.


To all of those still on patrol, in the field or at sea that will never come home I say...
"All gave some...Some gave all...To all those who have served, are serving and who will serve..Thank you for your courage, commitment and sacrifice."

I am sorry for the loss of your friend; you are absolutely right, we do need to stop and pause and be thankful for those who are willing to serve our country and die to protect our freedom. We should never take them or their families for granted and should try to support them as much as we can indeed! having said that, I hope your weekend is a good one
