Memorial Day

Today is Memorial Day. There is little I can say that has not been said before, but let us never forget the service and sacrifice that all members of our nation's armed forces have given, both past and present. The photo above is of USMC 1st Lt. Ron Winchester, a former Navy football player from the Class of 2001 who was killed in action during combat operations in Iraq three years ago. Take some time today to think of Lt. Winchester, or of former Navy football players J.P. Blecksmith and Scott Zellem, and remember their lives and honor their sacrifice. My thoughts and prayers go out to their families, as well the families of all our service men and women who serve around the world in areas of danger. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts, and we will always remember the sacrifices of your fallen brothers and sisters.
