In services both today and yesterday, Jewish War Veterans in attendance were each recognized for their service, along with all those that have worn the uniform of the United States. So while many hit the beaches for their holiday, some of us were praying for continued strength to those in uniform that protect us and the Free World. Only with special prayers for our veterans on a holiday with special prayers for those that gave up their lives could this day be any more special.
As President Dwight D. Eisenhower once wrote; "History does not long entrust the care of freedom to the weak or the timid." So on this scared day of remembrance, let us all move forward knowing freedom is not free and we should always be thankful to those who served for US and who serve US now, not just when they where the uniform, but when they return to their civilian lives. To those that gave their lives for US, we salute you and shall always remember you in our collective prayers. Have a great week!
