We Salute You!

Join me and my new friend, Captain Santa in a salute to all the men, women, and children who gave their lives to help make and keep the United States of America a free land! This day to honor those who would not go down without a fight began for the U.S. as an event called Decoration Day near the end of the Civil War (the same tradition had already been practiced in other nations for several hundred years.) Loved ones of those who had died in war would visit and decorate the grave sights of the deceased with flowers and other colorful ornaments. Today, we honor the memory of those brave and selfless individuals, and pray a special prayer for all those who are still fighting to keep our country safe. Thank you all so very much!
