Memorial Day Tribute

This past Memorial Day allowed us a day off from work to enjoy the freedom our troops provide for us. It was also a day to remember those who have given the ultimate sacrifice for that freedom. Here at home in Alabama one can always tell when a patriotic holiday has arrived. Our streets are lined with flags, our churches, whose doors boast yellow ribbons, honor our service members and preach patriotic sermons, and our news and history television channels provide an array of tributes throughout the day.

While enjoying this holiday, I wondered if my brother, an active duty Army Reservist currently serving in Iraq, would be celebrating it too. It turns out that he and his unit, the 314th PAOC, did take time to remember their fallen comrades. Below is a picture of Bryan (front) during their Memorial Day flag ceremony. Please take a few moments today to pray for our active duty military service members.
