This is a weekend where most of us in the United States of America get an extra day added on to our weekend and the unofficial summer vacation season begins in earnest. Too often during this weekend we fail to pause and remember what the holiday this Monday is really all about. It is all to easy to enjoy the pool, cookouts and other fun activities this holiday weekend and forget that the reason we have the freedom to do all these things as we choose to do them is because of the ultimate display of servant leadership, the giving of one’s life so others can benefit.

I am grateful for all those who have gone to foreign lands and spilled their blood so that I may worship God without fear of persecution and enjoy the many other freedoms that I so often take for granted.

I want to thank all of you who have served in one of our military branches risking your life for mine, serving our country with your life, putting others before yourself and protecting all we hold dear here in America by laying it all on the line. Thank you all for your service!

I want to thank all of you who have made the sacrifice of losing a loved one who gave up their life for the protection of our liberties. I am truly sorry for your loss, but please remember that their death was not in vain, but instead was an example to all of us of servant leadership, giving of oneself for others. Thank you for your families service and sacrifice!
