Memorial Day 2020

May 25, 2020

These are strange times… and none of us need to be told to Remember our Brothers.  It’s Memorial Day Weekend, a time for our Country to remember… we Remember every day.  And always Remember their Families…

Do what you can, do what you want, I know our Brothers and Sisters will always Remember… 

Semper Fidelis, God Bless America.
