Memorial Day, not National BBQ Day

I have become very tired of hearing “Happy Memorial Day” as people go off to their parties and BBQ’s. It leads me to believe that many in our country have forgotten what Memorial Day is for. It is not a second Veteran’s Day. It is a day to remember our dead. It is a day to give thanks to God that we have men and women who were willing to pay the ultimate sacrifice for their brothers and sisters. I hope we can also remember that we have a serious problem where 22 Veterans a day take their own lives as a result of what they have experienced and lost in war. This Memorial Day, I would like to introduce you to two Marines, who paid the ultimate sacrifice in Ramadi, Iraq in 2008. They were not elite Snipers, Delta or SEALs. They were just Marines. They stood their post to the end and did all that can ever be asked of a Marine. I hope they live forever in legend. I hope you take a few minutes to read it and to tell someone else about these two men on this Memorial Day. Continue reading Memorial Day, not National BBQ Day

Merry Christmas 2014


From our family to yours, we want to wish you all a Merry Christmas! Please take a minute to say a prayer for all those who are standing watch tonight, prepared to go in harms way to keep us safe. Let’s also say thanks to our Nurses, EMTs, Firefighters and all the other folks who don’t have the luxury of staying home tonight. Finally, thanks to all of you for making our little project such a success! Stay safe and GET OUT AND SHOOT!

Happy Thanksgiving!

I hope that you are able to sit down and truly enjoy some time with friends and family. Please say a prayer for those in our Armed Forces who are deployed and for our First Responders who will be keeping watch. Be safe brothers and sisters.


Happy Thanksgiving 2013

stock-graphics-vintage-thanksgiving-postcard-00161Happy Thanksgiving to all! Please remember to keep in your hearts and prayers those who are not able to spend Thanksgiving with their loved ones. Some are on the street keeping out neighborhoods safe. Some are standing watch in far off lands. Some care for our sick and wounded. Some are just working to keep the lights on, toilets flushing and goods moving from sea to shining sea. All wish they were sitting down to a meal with those who they hold dear. Thankfully we are a nation who has citizens who sacrifice their comfort for the greater good.

From the bottom of my heart, Thank You!
