Memorial Day

Memorial Day is a day of remembrance for those who have died in our nation's service.  Please remember those who have given their lives for our freedoms.

Memorial Day weekend will now be another remembrance for our husband's retirement from the Army.  His retirement ceremony was Thursday.  His parents and our son were able to be here which made it even more special.  It was a beautiful ceremony, a happy, yet bittersweet day.

Eight soldiers and one civilian had their ceremonies together.  Here is a picture of my husband, stepped up from the line, as his biography and list of accomplishments were read.

Our little family.

Thank you, Tony, for your years of dedicated service to our country!
