While pulling down on crimps and slapping in jams, please take a moment to remember what this "road tripping" weekend is all about.

"It is our duty to keep the memory of our heroes green. Yet they belong to the whole country; they belong to America." -- Jefferson Davis

Have a great weekend!

It's strange to imagine that over half a century ago, our world could have been drastically different were it not for June 6th, 1944. Many of us would not be here now.

And, were it not for the sacrifice from those that preceeded or followed, many of us would not know what it means to be here now.

I hope that those who join my brother in service, come home safe; but if not, that they come home, in freedom.
