Something to remember today.

Back in 2009, I remember going to the big Memorial Day celebration in Orange. The Patriot Guard Riders didn’t get to make their grand entrance as planned because of the torrential rains, but they still came. Beaumont PGR chapter president Sandra Womack told everyone why they still came. She said of the fallen soldiers, “They didn’t get an opportunity to choose the weather they fought in, or to choose whether or not to go.”

We should remember that, today and every day.

    Yep – today is a day for remembering and honoring those who fell in service to OUR country.
    Armed Forces Day (for those currently serving) and Veteran’s Day (for those who have served) are the appropriate days to celebrate.

    In an interesting coincidence, something from Connecticut’s Orange: http://bit.ly/11sW4ea

    R.I.P. fallen heroes. CT patriots remember – young and old alike.
