Memorial Day Is Always Tough For Me

For most that know and some that dont, I served in the United States Army for 20 years with over 5 years of that in a combat enviorment. Today marks a tough day for any service member, past or present.  Memorial day we remember those who gave the ultimate sacrifice. 

A lot of thoughts, memories are racing through mmy head today.  One of the hardest things I had to do was speak at a funeral for one of my soldiers who paid the ultimate sacrifice in combat.  To see the hurt, pain, sadness in friends and family is something I hope no one ever has to endure.  All I can think and wish is I could take the pain and suffering away for each and everyone of them.  

As I stand in front of that Soldiers Cross and give my final salute to my fellow brother, my voice, thoughts, feelings, tears say I will always honor and remember you.  On this day I am distance then others, but please understand that I am remembering the best men and woman I had the privilege of serving next to who made the ultimate sacrifice.  "TIL VALHALLA"
