Memorial Day - United States of America

Arlington National Cemetery

Freedom is Not Free

 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Today I remember all who have served, especially my brother
Lt. Col. Donald A. Thomas, Sr. USAF, Retired, 1932 - 2002.

One of those young airmen carrying my brother's coffin is his son/my nephew.  I'm so very proud of both of my brothers who served and two nephews, one of whom is serving in the Middle East today. 


Who are you remembering today?

I hope you all have a beautiful Memorial Day.

I am remembering my dad who served in the Air Force in the Korean War and World War 11. He was a Bomber Pilot Trainer. I am also remembering all those who have served and who are presently serving our great United States....debbie

I think about all the soldiers who have so bravely fought to preserve our freedom throughout our country's history. Each death in that service is a sad loss, and we owe them so much. May we always remember and honor them.
