Awww Monday May 25, 2015 Lest we forget....

We are so lucky to live in a country that still has freedom.  Be sure to thank all the men and women who keep our country safe. We must never forget the lives lost protecting our freedom and  the families that were left behind that have suffered the loss of a loved one.
