I feel blessed this Memorial Day to be the son and grandson of warriors that stepped up and signed a blank check to this country. Looking back on my childhood, I now realize the powerful impact that both my father and my grandfathers had on my life. Essential lessons in my formative years in personal responsibility, honesty, and selflessness. My grandfather returned from the European Theater after WWII with a permanent limp and a Purple Heart. Not once did I ever hear him complain about it. I can sleep well tonight because of the men and women who continue this proud tradition of service. For those that gave their lives and for those that returned with their lives permanently scarred by what they experienced, I say Thank you!
