Memorial Day

John 15:13

Danny and I recently visited Washington, D.C. On this Memorial Day, I t

"We here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain - that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom - and that go

The Vietnam War Memorial ~

The Korean War Memorial ~

World War II Memorial ~

The Greatest Generation remembers . . .

May your Memorial Day be safe and blessed!
