Awesome way to give back to our Veterans
I saw this today on www.bigben7.com and what a special way to give back to the men & women who have sacrificed so much for our freedom.

A time to stop and give thanks to our military…
MemorialDay_1With all my heart I give my thanks,
to those in uniform regardless of ranks.
You serve our country and serve it well,
with humble hearts your stories tell.
So as I rest my weary eyes,
while freedom rings our flag still flies.
You give your all, do what you must,
with God we live and God we trust.
Amen. — (author unknown)
*Thank you to Greg Yakubick, Lance Cpl., U.S. Marine Corps, for sending the prayer.

Take a moment this weekend to watch this tribute to our soldiers, past & present, and our police and fire heroes -

It’s never too early…
to sponsor a wreath for a fallen soldier’s grave during the holiday season!
Memorial Day may herald the start of summer vacations for many, but donations are already being accepted for the 2013 Wreaths Across America Remembrance Ceremony, which is scheduled for December 14th, 2013.
From their website:
“Our mission: Remember, Honor, Teach, is carried out in part by coordinating wreath laying ceremonies a specified Saturday in December at Arlington, as well as veterans’ cemeteries and other locations in all 50 states and beyond. We also organize a week of events including international veteran’s tributes, ceremonies at State Houses and a week-long “Veteran’s Parade” between Maine and Virginia where we stop along the way to spread our message about the importance of remembering our fallen heroes, honoring those who serve, and teaching our children about the sacrifices made by veterans and their families to preserve our freedoms.
“This week of events is made possible by thousands of volunteers who organize local ceremonies, raise funds to sponsor wreaths, and participate in the events. We receive no government funding. The cost of our programs is paid by individual wreaths sponsors, corporate donors and volunteer truckers.”
If you would like to sponsor wreaths to be placed on the graves of our military this December, now is the time!
