In the United States, it is Memorial Day. Many have the day off work. Later we go to enjoy the company and food of friends.
But today I also remember those who are not here. Civilians, Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Coast Guard, human and companion… those who gave their all, who made the ultimate sacrifice in the name of Home. Those who defended the country in which I live, and those abroad, who defended their homes and paid the final price for freedom – whatever it meant to them.
I honor those who have died in the line of duty. Marine or Maquizar, Mountie or MARCOS, I honor your sacrifice today. Enjoy your time in Tír na nÓg; you have earned your rest.
