Our young men and women in uniform will fill the streets of Manhattan until Memorial Day on Monday. Memorial Day signals the official start of summer vacations and long, lazy, days spent at the seaside. But, Memorial Day means so much more.
As the child of a Naval Officer and the wife of a Vietnam era Army Veteran, I feel a special bond with the families of these extraordinary young men and women in uniform, some of whom may be called upon to give, in the words of Abraham Lincoln “…the last full measure of devotion…” to their country.
On this Memorial Day, I would like to give you a glimpse into the softer side of these brave warriors who serve and protect the most vulnerable among us.
Happy Memorial Day................May We Never Forget Those Who Serve and Protect !!
