  • Erin Martin

    I would like to thank my grandpa, Jerry Bujold, for serving our country in WWII. At 87, your stories inspire me more than ever, and I love that you can share them with your great-grandsons who will forever have a piece of American history.

  • Mary Cherico

    I would like to thank my cousin Robert for his time spent serving in the Marine Corp. He signed up after 9/11 and spent almost 3 of his 4 active years in Iraq. You are so brave and such an inspiration for selflessness. I love you and thank you for all you have done for our country.

  • Mauzy

    I would like to honor my Uncle Rick Walch, who sacrificed his life in the Gulf War. His heroism and bravery humbles me to this day. We remember him fondly and we tell people how proud we are him every day. God Bless the US Army!

  • Neil Hinz

    I would like to thank my little brother Mitch for his service in the Army. A person who 3 years ago up, and quit his cushy Computer Tech job at 3M to join The Army. He comes home in June for the first time in two years, and since he joined. Then, ships out for his first tour in Afghanistan 4th of July weekend. Be Safe little bro.

    I’d also like to thank both my Grandfathers, and Wife’s Grandfather for their service. Two of them are no longer with us. WWII Vets are some of the bravest people I’ve ever met.

    Whatever you’re doing this Holiday Weekend, partying with friends, and family, enjoying Monday off, doing yard work, shopping … just take one moment to think of all those who have, and are sacrificing for this great Country we live in.

    Remember: All gave some. Some gave all.

  • Kris E.

    On this Memorial Weekend a very special thank you to all of our military families who have given the ultimate “gift” in service to our country, their loved one.
    Thank you for your sacrifice to keep all of us safe and free.

  • Doug Peterson

    To my dad, Elmer, who served in WWII, and my brother Terry, who gave his life in Vietnam, my deepest love, gratitude, and respect. I wish I had been able to tell you when you were still alive, but I was too young and didn’t understand. Thank you to all members of our armed forces. You make us all proud to be Americans. I get it now. God bless you!

  • Pat

    Here’s to all the past, present and future service men and women who have served this country with respect, pride and honor! On this Memorial Day, I would like to honor my father, father-in-law, husband, brothers, brother-in-laws and nephew who have all served/serve their country with honor and deserve our respect and loyalty. Amen!

  • Gordon Martin

    I would like to thank my father, Gordon Martin, for his service. Young men and women making the choice to serve our country is a corner stone of the freedom we all enjoy, yet many of these individuals go without recognition. Thank you! Thank you for doing what you did and never expecting anything in return. You are a wonderful father, citizen and roll-model for my son.

    I would like to honor our son Mitch, who decided at 24 that he wanted to serve his country & joined the Army…. His bravery inspires me and makes us all very proud. He will be leaving on his first tour to Afghanistan sometime this summer from Germany, that has been his home for almost 2 years now. We love you so very much Mitch!! And thank you dad as well my father in law and many uncles and cousins who have also served….. God Bless You All!!!
