Honoring Mr. Wilson on Memorial Day

The American Flag.

Hi Everyone,

I’m enjoying the weekend with my family, and I hope you are, too!

On this Memorial Day, I am thankful for the men and women who gave their lives so that we Americans can enjoy the freedom that we have in the United States.

My prayers are for the family and friends that they left behind.

This Memorial Day is extra special for me. The father of one of my dear friends fought in the Vietnam conflict. PFC Danny Wilson survived Vietnam (I think, with injuries) and was able to come back home to live a full life with his family. I am proud to say that I met him on a few occasions and I attended his funeral about a year or two ago.

His family is now in Washington, D.C. to honor Mr. Wilson and 14 other service members whose names were recently added to the Vietnam Veterans Memorial wall.

May God bless all of you who are celebrating Memorial Day, minus a loved one who has died in a war.

And, as always, may God continue to bless America.
